Hi there! In my last blog entry, I shared a couple of love-themed cards, that I made with My Favorite Things products from the January release. Last week I shared more cards on my Instagram profile and today I’m back with even more…
The first one is a simple interactive card featuring the Friendly Fox Die-namics. When you activate the pull tab, the fox moves its head from side to side. I used a mechanism that I saw in this awesome video in a YouTube channel called: 野呂茂樹. Even though it’s not a tutorial, it clearly shows the mechanism, making it easy to repeat it.
Check out this animated gif to see it in action:
I die cut all of the pieces of the fox in white cardstock, and colored them with my Copic markers. I applied some Glossy Accents to the eyes and nose and that’s about it. I cut the grass using dies from the Grassy Hills Die-namics and Grassy Edges Die-namics sets. The last touch was a couple of heart-shaped enamels.
Card with unicorns and embossing
For my second card, I used stamps from the beautiful Rainbows and Unicorns set. I stamped the diamond repeatedly in Versamark ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder, in order to create this elegant background.
I then used the Mirror Image stamp, to flip the unicorn stamp and colored both with Copic markers. Even though you can hardly tell from the pictures, I added touches of Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to them. Lastly, I fussycut them and added some foam tape to the back to make them stand out from the background.
Clean and simple love-themed cards
I was running out of time, so I designed this very clean and simple card and repeated it 8 times… always changing the colors of the unicorn. I added Wink of Stella both to the fairy’s dress and wings, as to the unicorn.
With this close-up, I say goodbye for now. Have a great Valentine’s Day tomorrow! You still have plenty of time to create something like this…
