Valentine's Mingle Cards
For the second card, I started with black as my card base. I took a 1.75 by 4.75 piece of white cardstock, and used the retired SU Wrought Iron corner punch to punch a corner. I used some patterned paper, and rounded the two right hand side corners. Using scrap white cardstock, I used the Stitched Heart stamp from Hero Arts, and stamped the heart twice in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, and cut out. With one heart, I stamped the squirrel and partial sentiment in Versafine Black, showing the stitched lines ( Stamps are Hero Arts). I flipped the other heart over, and trimmed to the second heart, so it was a bit smaller. I used an Autumn Leaves Alpha set and stamped the U in Versafine black. I then adhered the white punched corner piece to the patterned paper, and adhered to the base cardstock. I coloured the squirrel in with a marker, then used SU's Crystal Effects to make him glossy. Once that dried, I stuck the heart with the U on the bottom towards the right hand corner, then foam mounted the squirrel on top of that. To finish the card, I added some gems.
