Chipboard Frame Vintage Valentine Card
January 31, 2020
New team member Tami here to share a Valentine card I made
using the new Heart Chipboard Embellishment from Clear Scraps.
Its 4 X 6 size makes it perfect for cardmaking. You can cut the heart to use it as free floating, but I liked how the
pieces that hold the heart create "panels", so I left them in place.
First I painted the chipboard frame with gold paint.
Next, I spritzed a piece of vintage music paper lightly with water then inked it with pink ink to create a watercolor effect on the paper.
Once the paper was dry, I laid the chipboard piece over the inked paper and used a pencil to trace around the outer edge of the heart.
Then i cut the heart out a bit inside the lines and adhered it to the back of the heart portion of the chipboard frame.
Do the same with plain manila paper to the rings at top and heart at bottom of the heart.
Next i used the 6" Quarterfoil Stencil and pink and lavender ink to add a background to a 5 X 7 piece of manila paper.
The paper was then trimmed to 4 X 6 and adhered to the back of the chipboard frame.
Fold a 6 X 8 piece of coordinating cardstock in half to make the card base and adhere the chipboard frame to the front.
Embellish with tiny, bright pink roses, vintage dictionary cut out, iridescent rhinestones and a bow made from vintage mauve ribbon.
To add a bit of sparkle, apply a liquid glitter product to rose petals.
I also used a pretty pink glitter pen to underline "love" on the definition.
