Well, ok then. I started out today creating a masculine valentine – I had a little mail carrier stamp and some red print paper and it seemed to be a good start. I cannot really identify where it all went to “girly”. It does make me laugh, when I look at it now! Of course, the day went that way in general – nothing ended the way you would think it should – not a bad day, just “off”.
I started by stamping the image both on white cardstock and several different prints – since I planned on paper piecing and coloring with copics. Again – as a helpful hint – stamp on the cardstock and then lay your spellbinders on top to cut after.
After coloring “Bree”, I basically just layered all the pieces of cardstock, patterned paper and the image on a square card base. I added ribbon and buttons to finish the card. Very simple, but definitely not the masculine card I planned to make – guess there is always tomorrow!
