Good morning and happy Valentine’s Day. I have a card on Elle’s Studio blog showcasing our February 2017 kit and extras. I knew I was posting on Valentine’s Day, but wanted to create someting different.
I was inspired by the 3″ x 4″ floral background tag from the kit and wanted to use it as a focal element on my card. I used my watercolor crayons to color in the flowers and leaves on the journaling card background- just a little touch of color with the crayon and a little water with the paint brush to move the color around. I added a little bit of color to the diamond patterned paper of the card base as well.
I cut a strip of yellow from one of the patterned papers in the Sunny Days 12 x 12 Paper Collection and used my fringe scissors to add a fringe to the paper strip. I cut the striped border journaling tag from Love You Journaling Tags in half and adhered it behind my watercolored flower journaling card. The fringe was added to the bottom and a little twine tied in a bow to the front. I added the yellow heart sticker from the Speech Bubble Stickers and layered the colorful banner tag from the February 2017 Exclusive Kit. It was the perfect way to pull all of the colors together.
I used a gray marker to draw the flowers onto white cardstock, then I colored them with the same watercolor crayons. They are a larger version of the ones on the journaling card. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the front with 3D foam squares. Above the flowers, the “hello” sticker from the Speech Bubble Stickers created the perfect sentiment!
