… my hubby planned something for me and I wanted to give something back, at least a little card 🙂 So I grabbed the new MFT Ewe are the best stamp and the stitched cloud edges to create a Valentines Day card in “seventh heaven” (Do you know this saying or is that a German thing?).
I started with die-cutting the background and blended distress ink (Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean) to create the sky. Nothing fancy, just simple blending without water. Now I took some white card stock and vellum, ran it through my die-cut machine with a stitched rectangle first and with the cloudy borders afterwards. I tried to use the bigger clouds for the vellum, because they are in the background, and the smaller clouds for the white card stock. Next I stamped the sheep with the heart (it’s soooo cute 🙂 ) and colored it with Copics. For the shadow I used C0 and C2 and tried to keep everything very light. The heart was colored with my favorite red combo R21, R14, and R27. After I was done coloring the heart, I thought that it looks like a balloon, so I had to add two more heart balloons that fly into the air. I used the one from the Ellie set from Avery Elle and colored them with the same red combo.
Now it was time to assemble everything. I adhered the white cloud onto the vellum clouds using foam tape. Now I had some coverage for the liquid glue on the back of the vellum and adhered that to the background. I added a little Lawn Fawn red sparkle twine to the balloons and popped them up with foam tape. After I was done, I realized that I forgot a sentiment… Dang… Thankfully the cloud at the bottom had a lot foam tape behind it, so I was able to stamp a clear sentiment. Phew! As a final touch, I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle to the balloons. Btw, this pen has more sparkle in it than the Wink of Stella, but besides that it’s exactly the same.
I hope that you have an amazing Valentines Day and enjoy the time with your loved ones, no matter who it is!
