Easy, Shiny, & Glitzy Valentine

Saturday, January 31, 2015

My last Valentine card for one more Grand-daughter. This one is very shiny with silver foil, and glitzy with Silver Glimmer hearts.

This is a little different form the traditional Valentine card, but very much suites the Grand-daughter that will receive this card. She takes after her Mom, one of my daughters.

For this very easy card I used Silver Foil cardstock as the card base, used silver metallic ink to second stamp the flower border, and mounted it onto Strawberry Slush cardstock with  1/4" border. I usually prefer 1/8" or 1/16" borders, but this card called for wider boarders.

You can see in this close up the layering. The Sweetheart heart has two layers of dimensionals, while the glitzy Itty Bitty hearts have only one layer, as does the Strawberry Slush piece on the Silver Foil card base.

Have you ever considered using foil cardstock as a card base? Try it! It's fun and makes a very unique card! You can see the product I used, below.

Thanks for stopping by today!
