Valentine 2018 Card Making Series - Simple Card feat Stamping Bella and Doodlebug


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a card and a video showing how to make a quick and simple Valentine’s day card using one main image as focal point. For this card I chose the Love Chicks set by Stamping Bella: besides the fact that it is super adorable, it immediately sets the scene on its own, and it allows ot create a very cute card in little time. The patterned paper and the decorative borders provide those extra touches that give a finished look to the card.

To start off this card I stamped my image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
I trimmed down the panel to 5.5” by 2.5” and I added stitching on the long sides using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders. I then cut two 1.5” strips from two different designs in  the Doodlebug 6x6” Hello Sunshine paper pad (four in total). I created a scalloped edge to two of them using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders. For the other two I used the Lawn Fawn Valentine Borders to add some arrows along the outer edges. I adhered everything flat to my card base. 

To finish off the card I added shimmer to the love letters, some white gel pen detail to all the images, and a bit of dimension to the heart and the chicks’ beaks using Nuvo Drops in morning dew.
If you’d like to see the step by step video tutorial for this card you can watch it on my YouTube channel. If you like it, I would love if you let me know by leaving a comment or a thumbs up on my YouTube channel and by becoming a subscriber, if you aren't already :)

And that’s it for today’s video! I really hope you guys enjoyed it and you like today’s card. I will be back soon with another fun project, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day!
