Here's another Valentine card for you to drool over. It's hybrid. Meaning that I used digital papers to create this. They are from a kit called XOXO by ForeverJoy Designs. The sentiment is a digital stamp from the Valentine Sentiments set by Arty Pants Digital Stamps. I made this as a sample for the Card Caravan at The Hybrid Chick.
I created the bracket shape for the card in the Silhouette software. I then cut that shape on a piece of 8.5" x 11" paper that I had printed with the striped paper from the digi kit.
Since I don't like to waste paper, I printed one piece of 8.5"x11" paper with the dotted pattern and solid paper from the kit, each covering half the paper. In the Silhouette software, I created a "print and cut" page with the sentiment as a print item. I sized an oval cut shape with the sentiment centered in it. I also placed a scalloped oval shape so that it would be on the dotted patterned paper. I set the Silhouette to "use registration marks" and sent it to the printer.
I was certain to place my paper back in the printer so that the sentiment would print on the solid portion. You can see it in the above image, as well as the printed registration marks.
Once I ran it through the Silhouette to cut, I had these two shapes to use for my card sentiment.
The foliage is a cut file from Penny Duncan. I simply replicated a mirrored image to create the 2 sets of leaves. I cut them on the green solid paper from the kit, and inked them up.
I love those glubber type flowers! But I don't have any glubbers. So I created one. I used a sheet of Humongo Adhesive and cut a 2" circle from it. I then wet some seam binding and scrunched it up to get it all wrinkly. I then adhered the seam binding to one side of the adhesive circle. I added a heart shape center. I edged the heart with some Bridal Tinsel and heat embossed it, popped a gem in the center for a little more bling. Can you ever have too much bling??
Hope you are having a creative week!
