WPlus9 | Friendship Valentine Card – Hugs & Kisses and Valentine Wishes. Video

Valentine’s Day cards, I think, are not just for the love birds, but can also be given other people – friends, family, even co-workers. Today I’m sharing an example of such a card created using some of my favorite products from WPlus9.

CARD DETAILS

I wanted to use “Hugs & Kisses & Valentine Wishes” sentiment from the the Valentine Wishes stamp set for my card. I decided to alter the sentiment a bit and use large Whimsy Alpha letters to spell Hugs Kisses.

I stamped my letters in Falling For Blue ink, cut them out using companion dies and also created a banner stamped in Lake House with “Valentine Wishes” stamped in Falling For Blue.

After foam mounting letters and banner onto a Dove Gray cardstock panel I added selective dry embossing using my bone folder and scoring board just like I did here; I’m rather enjoying this old technique these days – I feel it lets me easily add unique texture to my cards.

I also stamped and cut out images using Fresh Cut Florals stamp set. I used Silver Lining as well as Bloomsberry and Cockleshell ink colors for my stamping and added little floral details to my sentiment cluster.

    1. Gorgeous colors, design, and I think the non-uniformity of the 1/4″ lines actually adds interest. So it’s definitely on my “on purpose” side of the equation!

    1. Beautiful!! I love how you clustered it and your colours are gorgeous!! I am loving the basic scoring you’ve been doing. It totally changes the card. So simple yet so dramatic!! You’ve inspired me to go back to the basics with a couple other things too. Thanks for sharing your creativity!!

    1. Love the color combination! So pretty together. Appreciate the sharing on how you “fixed” a “mistake” (aka happy accident!!!). Thank you!

    1. Yana I absolutely love the blue, grey and purple combination. The die cut and stamped sentiment in the centre of the card just ‘pop’ and it is amazing. I love how you are going back to the scoring background technique, this is simple, easy to achieve and makes such an amazing part of your design. Thank you for your tips throughout this video tutorial it is essential for us new crafters to learn these tips and techniques from you professional crafters. Thank you again for all you do for us crafters Yana. Have a great 2018. :O)

    1. I love the colour combination too! And I think the mistake with the scoring lines was a good one 🙂
