Stencilled Valentine Card

Hi there.  Well I hope everyone who celebrated it had a good Valentines Day.  I made this card for DH and also intended it for Less is More's 5th birthday but by the time I got round to posting it on Friday evening I missed the deadline because I thought it was midnight but it was 10pm.   Anyway here is the card which I wasn't sure DH would like as it is not the usual type of valentine card, but he did make all the right noises so I took that as a yes .. lol.











        









The second photo shows the lovely shine of the Pearl and Silver Embossing Powders which look a bit flat and uninteresting in the first photo.

I used a stencil from Claritystamp's Design Club and laid it on a snippet of white card and using Versamark ink I patted the ink through the stencil straight from the pad.  I decided to leave the larger heart out and covered it with a piece of paper under the stencil and where it slightly covered some of the hearts nearby I kept turning it to make sure I had covered all the surrounding hearts with enough of the ink. After removing the stencil I used some WOW White Pearl Embossing Powder and then heat set it.  I then placed the stencil back and put paper over the surrounding hearts and then covered the remaining heart with the Versamark and again removed the stencil and covered it in WOW Silver EP and heat set it.

I finished by stamping the sentiment using the Versamark and WOW Silver EP and then mounted this on to a snippet of silver mirri card and then mounted that on to a white square card.

Thank you for dropping by today.
