Valentine’s Card for Parents

Hi There,

Back to share another card that I made for Valentine’s Day. Since my parents live so far away, I thought these 2 digi stamps from Craftin Desert Diva’s would be perfect for a simple little Valentine’s card for them.

I brought the 2 digi’s into Microsoft Word and then duplicated them 3 more times for a total of 4 images each. This allowed me to fussy cut the images after colouring the various parts and then layer them to give the characters some depth. I printed the images out onto “100% Recycle Paper, Robert Bateman, Cover Series, Artist Quality Sketchbook” paper and then used PrismaColor Premier Pencils and Gamsol blending medium to colour the images. I highlighted the eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and the noses with Gelly Roll Sakura #6 Pen. A touch of Clear – Wink of Stella on the small hearts.

The 2 digis that I used were:

On the Front: “Little Lovelies Bear with Mailbox”


Here is a closer look.


I embossed the “Happy Valentine’s Day” with Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder – Rich Red.

On the inside is the digi called: “Little Lovelies Love Letter Bear”.

I think the first photo shows off the layers better. This is the same image. Just shown at 2 different angles.

Here is the close up.


For the background paper I used K&Company 2-sided Valentine’s paper. I cut it out with Spellbinders Postage Stamps S4-348 and my Sizzix BigKick machine.

The little sentiment on the front is also from K&Company.

Hope you like it!
