My OH wanted me to make our cards from Darcy Wilkinson’s stamps this year as he loves the shapes of the hearts on plate EDY01, he also challenged me to use all the shades of red Pan Pastels i have and one Metallic colour. He did this as he knows i have difficulty using red, it is not one of my favourite colours!
Made an 8x8 card for OH and used the card that was over to make mine, think this is known as a scrapling card. Used an A3 sheet of Kraft card from Anna-Marie Designs.
Used Red, Red Oxide and Permanent Dark Red also Rich Gold and Copper Metallic Pan Pastels onto a piece of card stock from stash.
Stamped out all the hearts and sentiments. Cut them out and triple embossed them with clear embossing powder. Backed them all with black card as needed a little bit of drama, they looked lost on the Kraft card without the dark background. Have used 13 hearts as we have been together 13 years.
Used Darcy’s heart vine stamp to go round the edges of the cards, i like to go around the whole card not just the fronts. Coloured the hearts in using Pan Pastels Metallic colours and Portfolio Pastels vines.
Finally added the sentiments which are both from Paper Artsy.
Thanks for dropping by, have a lovely weekend and welcome to February.
