Today we will see how with stamps and stencils we can create this stunning Valentine’s Day Card.
The layering of stamping and stenciling gives such a wonderful realistic look and the bold colorful images really pop on the Kraft colored cardstock background.
ROSE BOUQUET VALENTINE CARD
colored inks for stamping (if you don’t have them, you can use also acrylic colors) – cardstock (200 g) for gretting cards – stencils (below you can find a few ready ones to make a card similar to the one above) – craft psper for making stencils (you can use also thick paper, but they will last much less) – cutter – sponge – black marker – stamps
First of all print all your pdf stencils (below). Cut out carefully with a sharp cutter.
If you buy them ready, the procedure will be much easier and faster, but this is a nice activity to spend sometime also with your kids..
Prepare your colors and with a sponge (be careful that the color should not be too liquid).
Prepare your card by folding an A4 paper in half. You can also choose other sizes to make a variety of cards.
Now you can have fun and proceed by layers. If you want a 3D effect, you can stencil on other pieces of cardstock and then stick them on your final card.
Below you can see a complete video (especially for those who are already familiar with cricut and stamp inks).
For the text you can also buy stamps (usually you find different phrases in a box). The stamps will add a more professional look.
