Video! Masculine Valentine. Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit
Hello everyone! How’s your week going? I’ve been busy unpacking and getting things sorted over the past 2 days. Hoping to do some blog post planning tonight and get some crafting done over the weekend.
Today I’d like to share my take on the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit – I’ve created a masculine Valentine’s Day Card for my hubby.
This time I made a small 4 1/4 inches square card. I’m rather new to this format, but I think I like it and will probably keep using it in the future.
Now this card features several simple techniques – there’s emboss resist and watercolor using gelatos. The adorable paper clip heart in the center of my card was heat embossed onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper using clear embossing powder. Watercolored look was achieved using gold gelato + a bit of water.
I also used fabulous rub ons from Crate Paper to add a little something extra to my card. I used one behind the die cut piece with a watercolored heart, one more at the bottom and also several rub-on hearts.
As always, I’m sharing a video tutorial for this card. You can watch it here or on my Youtube channel:
If you like it, please give it a thumbs up and share. Thanks!

Thanks for showing the use of gelatos as an element on the card. The gold gives the resist with the watercolor look plus the extra shine. Love it!

Just a terrific card with the gelatos watercolor and great use of so many elements! Love the inspiration and will have to make some square valentines cards to change it up some! 🙂
