Svitlana is here today. Now is the season of love and Valentine’s card-making, which usually means red or pink cards in their majority. Which may not work for every recipient, like for men. I personally often don’t really like the cheesiness of traditional Valentine’s cards. So today I want to share one design using a bit (or not really) of contemporary colors.
I started by making an A2 card out of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then I cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel out of a patterned paper from the Enchanting Washes 6×6 Paper Pack and adhered it onto the card base.
Next, I die-cut several white roses using dies from the Rose Filament Die Set, which I then adhered onto the card.
I cut the letters for the word LOVE out of a gold glitter paper using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set and foam mounted them onto the card.
Lastly, I added several gold crystals to accentuate the card.
Now… I have to make a confession. Originally, I planned to have the darker part of the design in the bottom part of the card. But I kind of got carried away deciding where to place flowers so didn’t pay attention to that part. I only realized this when I was EDITING the PHOTOS, lol. But I like how it turned out. So this confession rant was about a fortunate mistake and that sometimes going the opposite direction can give a better result.
Have a wonderful day!
