I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good, just relaxed and crafted at home.
I received my Simon Says Stamp February card kit on Saturday and just went to town. I created three cards for this week that will but up here on today, Thursday and Saturday. This is the first of the three cards that I have to share with you.
Almost everything that was used to make this card came from the kit. I picked two papers from the kit and die cut them using the stitched rectangles from Lawn Fawn. I also die cut the watercolor paper that came in the kit. I stamped the heart, sentiment and arrows with versamark and added white embossing powder to the watercolor paper and heat set it to melt. I then added two colors of distress ink mixed with water to the watercolor paper. After that was dry I scribbled the gelato on my craft mat and added water, mixing with a fan brush to dissolve the gelato then flicking the colored water on the watercolor paper for some gold spatter. When that was dry I dripped some clean water droplets on the watercolor paper for a distressed look and set it aside to dry again. When the watercolor paper was good and dry I took a damp baby wipe and gently rubbed the embossing to remove any dried ink from it. Now I just had to put the card together. I cut my card stock into a standard A2 size, scored and folded it. I added the arrow paper directly to the card front with tape runner. I then added the other paper on an angle with foam tape and finally the watercolor paper with foam tape. To finish I added sequins and the cut jar clip that came in the kit.
Here are the goodies that were used to make this card:
