This lovely card was made with lots of great stuff from Canvas Corp. The base of the card was misted with red, pink and bronze Glimmer Mist and I also added lots of paper and embellishments from 7 Gypsies.
The challenge was to send a card to someone you usually would not send a Valentine to. I had just had a nice long chat with my sister, so it was she that inspired this fun card that actually made it in the mail.
I crafted a layered heart with burlap, paper as well as some 7 Gypsies tissue paper that had been covered in Ice Resin. I love the translucent look of this element.
I stumbled across an old clock die cut that was coated in gesso, embossed and later distressed and sanded that added nice compliment to the heart focal. Sometimes having a messy work space helps my process unfortunately.
I added some 7 Gypsies paper tape to bring in more of the vintage colors and add more texture to the background.
Finally, I used my favorite pins, also from 7 Gypsies to attach my sentiment. In order to add more fun to the recieving of this card, I enclosed it in a quickly made handmade envelope as well.
I am excited to surprise my sister with an old fashioned snail mail hello!
