Create some quick and easy Valentines day cards
I used Simple Stories "You & Me " Collection to whip up the sweetest and easiest cards. Simple Stories helps make it easy with their journal cards. The key to these cards lies in layering papers.
Here are the simple instructions
I grabbed a glue pen and some glitter to give these hearts a touch of glitz and glam. The glue pen is easy to use and perfect for making thin lines.
Drizzle the glitter over the wet glue pen lines and you're all set! BAM, instant bedazzling. I like to use a bead funnel as a glitter funnel - makes clean up a snap.
Embellishment time! Simple Stories has awesome stickers included in each collection. I aded a sticker from the Simple Stories, "You & Me" collection, a small flower and a hemp twine bow.
I wanted the hearts to have some dimension so I backed them with foam tape to make them pop.
Fun, right? And Easy too.
This card is equally easy and primarily consists of a few layers. In addition to white cardstock, I selected a journal card from Simple Stories, "You & Me" collection, and some patterned paper from the collection to use as a mat.
I added some texture using an embossing folder - this is the Tim Holtz Music folder.
I tied some hemp string around the card. Then I added foam tape to the back for a raised layer.
Simple and yet lovely.
In this card,. I used some kraft and red cardstock as matting for the card topped with a 3" x 4" ATC from Simple Stories, "You & Me" collection.
I wanted to make the heart pop a bit so I pulled out the . This is easy to use. Just apply evenly to the surface of the heart and let air dry. As the Glossy Accents are drying, you can add sequins, micro beads, glitter and other embellishments as you like. The Glossy Accents act like glue and will hold all those embellishments perfectly.
