Hello! It’s Jill from Jill Cameron Creations. Today is Christmas Eve but I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card. It is the next big card making event, so I thought we could get a head start.
Valentine’s Day usually means reds and pinks but it doesn’t have to. You can use any color you want to! And today I’m using oranges, yellows, and reds. All of the products I used are linked at the bottom of this post.
We’ll be using the Beautiful Magnolia stamp set but we’re not going to color the images as magnolias. Instead we’ll opt for a more tropical feel for these beautiful blooms.
Also, we’ll be using the slimline Printed Paper from The Hedgehog Hollow. These papers are black and white prints that you can foil using Deco Foil and a lamination machine.
First, I stamped the Beautiful Magnolia image and colored each of the flowers using YR16, R29, Y19, and YR09. I know magnolia blooms are supposed to be white but that’s the amazing thing about coloring images. They can be any color! If you notice I stuck with oranges in a variety of shades for this card.
Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo and PixScan mat to cut the image out. You can opt to fussy cut the image out. Fussy cutting is my least favorite things to do so I really like to have this option of my PixScan mat.
Then, I stamped the Diamond Pattern background stamp by Altenew in orange ink on kraft cardstock. I wanted foiled polka-dots in the background too but I didn’t want them in black so I foiled one of the patterns from the Maker Forte collection with a pumpkin-colored foil.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment in the same orange ink and popped it up using some foam tape.
