Good morning to you all. I'm here today with my very first official DT card for Polka Doodles. It's a nice easy one this week (well for some of us!) as it's Quick & Easy Valentine Cards. I thought I'd struggle with this one a bit as quick is not in my name or nature when it comes to card making as a rule, but this time I managed a quick and easy card. Yay go me!!!
What do you think??? I think it actually looks quite presentable for a card that took less than 30 minutes (excluding drying time of course)! My son loves it and has nabbed it for his girlfriend (true love at the age of 10!).
I used the Polka Doodles coloured and black/white images from the Sundae of Seasons CD and my graphics programme make the jar full of heart buttons and the heart button embellishment. Once I'd printed out the jar, I decided that it needed a bit of dimension, so popped the card back through the printer and printed out a couple more images. Now if I hadn't done this it would've saved time but tbh it only takes five minutes to cut out the images and I think it was worth the extra time as the jar really pops from the paper.
I ran an embossing tool around the edge of the jar and the other layers and then mounted them onto the card base using silicone glue. Once this was dry I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to enhance both the jar and hearts. I made the heart button using the same hearts as the jar is full of, but used my pokey tool to make holes before adding some Glossy Accents and black embroidery thread. To finish I matted and layered some pink and card and then added some doodling.
Oh and the sentiment inside the card reads "For you Valentine"
I really hope that you'll join us this week, I'd love to see what you create.
Thanks for stopping by.
