Sending You Love Valentine Card

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a Valentine card that is perfect to give a friend!  While at Starbucks the other day, I saw these cute heart gift cards, and I thought they would be so cute on a hand made card!  Immediately, I thought of 2 DeNami stamps that I thought would be perfect: CL-C118 Owl in a Tea Cup and CL-F171 Sending You Love.  I hope you like my non-traditional Valentine's day card!

I cut a piece of watercolor paper to make a top folding A2 sized card (11" x 4.5").  After scoring the paper in half, I masked off the back portion of the card base, and blended some coral ink.  I concentrated the color more on the bottom creating an ombre look.  Then I repeatedly stamped the Owl in a Tea Cup image with black ink.  On a few of the stamped images, I colored in the hearts with a glue pen, and sprinkled some Sparklets glitter on top.  After dusting off the excess, I set it aside to dry.  I die cut another piece of watercolor paper with  a rectangle stitched die.  I stamped my Sending You Love sentiment with Versamark ink and heat set with gold embossing powder.  I then popped up the sentiment piece up with foam tape and adhered it to the stamped coral card base.  I threaded some orange twine through the hole in the gift card, and attached it on top using just a tiny piece of foam tape, so it'll be easy for the recipient to remove.

Quick tip:  When repeatedly stamping, it's best to start in a corner and work out.  If you just randomly start stamping, you might get a few spots where your spacing is not quite right.
