Valentine Card #4

I had a bit of time today so I made another Valentine card! This card is 5.5 x 5.5" and made with paper from the very cute Doodlebug Sweetheart 6X6 paper pad. Doodlebug has such cute papers! I also used the C.C Designs Hogs and Kisses stamp, which I think is so adorable.

Paper for Copic Markers
Pink Pearls

Heart Doily

I coloured the image with Copic Markers
Pig: R81, R 83, R85
Feet: W1, W3, W5
Arrow: RV19
Shadow: B0000

Since the card is 5.5 x 5.5" square, I cut the pink card stock 5.5 x 5.5". Next I cut the flowered paper at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4"to create a layered effect. I cut the other 2 patterns at 5 1/4" and then cut diagonally to make 2 triangles. I cut 2 strips with the heart border die out of the pink paper and a coordinating patterned paper.  I inked the edges of the doily and the sentiment with distress ink. Glue all the pieces together, attach the ribbon and then adhere all to the pre-made card front. I used foam squares to make the image stand out a bit adding dimension. Place your pearls in the top right corner of the card. On the inside I cut 2 sizes of hearts from the patterned paper as well as one heart and stamped a valentine sentiment. After gluing those on I stamped another image of the pig in the bottom right hand corner. Now sit back and look at your cute Valentine card that you just made!

Chat at you later,
