Today I want to share a Valentines Card I made for Canvas Corp Brands. The entire team was challenged to make a surprise Valentine card to send to someone unexpected. You can read further down to whom I sent mine.
I have used a plain white card (that comes with an envelope) from Canvas Corp. First of all I covered it in clear gesso, then when dry I painted on Glimmer Mist with a really wet brush. After drying I stamped all over the card with a word stamp.
The paper from 7 Gypsies Maritime Collection (Voilier) has the perfect colors for this project. I tore two pieces of paper and distressed the edges before adding them to the card. Sentence cut from the Sending Love Words paper. The chipboard add dept to the card together with the hearts.
The chipboard was painted with white gesso, then one color of Glimmer Mist, sprinkles of embossing powder, more Glimmer Mist and some Glimmer Glam. The hearts where distressed pretty much the same way. First I cut out the hearts then I embossed them with white embossing powder. After heated dry I painted them with layers of Glimmer Glaze, Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam.
I did send my card to a local artist that are really talented and a true friend in art! She is the sweetest person and have always a kind word for me and my work.
