Well thank goodness for this “anything goes” theme, for though it is on the cusp of Valentines Day and ♥ abounds I could not seem to match my card up with a challenge. Finally I found this challenge and its nice that its my first time here.
I had EXTREME fun making the little flowers for this card, you might too -
If you can excuse the rather simple background - for (shhhhhh!) this card is for my Mr for Valentines Day. The flowers are the special part of this - they are made from wire and nail polish. Seriously. I based them off of a Pinterest pin which you can find HERE.
They are fairly easy to make, once you get the hang of them. I experimented with a few different colors. I’m always looking for ways to use nail polish up - don’t want it to just dry up in the bottles, and when summer turns to winter somehow neon toes don’t seem as joyful when my toes only get viewed in between wool socks.
I had to color a thin ribbon to match the colors of the yellow flower, using a Tombow marker.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to draw the sentiment, then I used Tombows to fill them in, and I added some dark shadows to pop the “BUNCHES” out. The final touch is a dear little heart element, tis actually a nail art heart from Claire’s. I embossed the lettering to make it stand out more.
The designer paper is from Basic Grey “Hey Boy”
