Valentine Day cards

Finally I am showing some new card I made recently. In fact I made much more. but will show them later. Below is a lot of text in Russian where I am talking about using English greetings on a card vs Russian ones. So scroll down to read details related to the cards.

This year I made two Valentine Day cards for mu hubby. I ordered stamps for them from Ukraine (wanted to have greeting in Ukrainian) and they came just a week before Valentine. And I did not have time to make a card in advance, except on this particular day (thanks God it is not a problem for me to wake up at 5am to do some crafting). As I was limited in time – I did not dare to start making card that I had initially in mind. So made a simpler version. Stamped hearts and sentiment, colored hearts with COPICs, covered them with Glossy Accents. Very simple. The sentiment says – “for my heart” in Ukrainian.

But when I set this card aside to let Glossy Accents dry I realized I still could have time to create a card I wanted in the very end.

The concept of this card – a wooden table covered with flour as one is making Valentine cookies. Some of the cookies are assembled on a twine in a form of garland, some are stillĀ scattered on the table. And the sentiment is written in flour with a finger. I feel like I was able to achieve desired picture.
How this was made. First I tone-on-tone stamped a wooden pattern on a brown cardstock. It’s almost hard to see it, but it makes difference. Like no makeup makeup lol.
Then I clear embossed the sentiment. Sprayed white spray (which serves the role of flour). Clear embossing created resist effect. Next I removed embossing ironing it through a paper.
Finally I stamped hearts on kraft cardstock, covered them with enamel accents, cut and adhered to my panel.
