Cards in Envy Challenge “Be Mine”
As we get closer to Valentine’s day, here at Cards in Envy we are having a “Be Mine” challenge. Cards in Envy challenge entries can be any size as long as they fit within a standardized A2 Envelope.
For my card today, I used a few different Hero Arts products. The first is last years Hero Arts January Card Kit, which is no longer available, but new kits come out monthly. I also used Hero Arts “Love” Stamp and Cut, which has both the stamp and the die in one package.
The background is created with a Rhonda Palazarri stencil that I applied with white Pan Pastels. Using Pan Pastel’s in stencils is a fabulous because the paint doesn’t seep through the other side and you get a really nice image. I blurred out the background to get a little more cohesion, which I felt looked “cloudy” and lovey.
After doing my stamping and die cutting, I applied a strip of American Crafts black glitter paper over American Crafts design paper called “Valentine”. I edged the hearts in black Tombow and popped them up with foam tape for dimension.
I do hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us your “Be Mine” cards. The challenge will run through February 19th and we look forward to seeing your entries!
