Two Quick Valentine Cards with Chris

I’ve neglected my Copics too long and decided that Valentine’s Day was a perfect day to play with some of the colors. Here are two quick cards I colored.

The first one is cut as a 3.5 x4.5 card (7x9 folded at top edge). I layered a scrap of pink paper on the front and then cut the largest Spellbinders Heart Square out of a coordinating paper and cut it diagonally to mat my digi image. The image was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. I rubbed the edge with some Barn Door Distress Ink, wrapped some pink twine around the bottom edge and popped it up off center so the heart mat would show.

The second card is cut as 5x5 card (10x5 folded at top edge). The layered base is a dryer sheet that I cut to 5x5 and sprayed with Tattered Angels. Rum Punch, Jingle Bells, and Santa Baby. I folded my card in half and ran it through my xyron. I pressed the dryer sheet onto the sticky front of my card and quickly sprinkled it with some pink glitter. (Be sure to press the glitter down to get at the glue and tap off the extra glitter.) I cut and embossed another Heart Square and layered my image (cut and embossed with Spellbinders Classic Squares) on top. Easy peasy—two cards done for the grand kids.
