Valentine’s Day or Special Occasion Card

Valentine’s Day is around the corner! Today’s card is perfect for the occasion or any special occasion! I made it using supplies from the December 2021 Card Kit of the Month from Spellbinders called, “Beauty Everywhere.”

I used two pieces of pattern paper from the kit along with the die cut shapes (the doily and the words and the sequins). The butterfly is a stamp from the kit that I stamped with versa mark ink and heat embossed with pink embossing powder. Now, I didn’t have an embossing powder that matched exactly the pink color already on the pattern paper, so I used a Zig Memory System waterproof marker in salmon to color over the embossed butterfly and wiped off the excess ink with my finger before the ink dried.

The bird and flowers were black and white, but I used a Zig clean color brush marker (watercolor marker) in light carmine and a paint brush with water to achieve the right color of pink for those images. I added some glittery shine to the breast of the bird with’s pops of color in glitter silver.

The pretty pink vertical border aligned with the black edge was die cut with the die and pink cardstock from the kit. (I just trimmed off part of the die cut, which you can see in the video below.
