Clean and Simple Valentines Day Card

Hi everyone,

Love is in the air…as Valentines Day is just coming up this weekend.

Inspired by Casology Cue - Love as well as Lawnscaping Clean and Simple Card Challenge, this is what I came up with.

Lots of love and keeping it to color palette of white, brown, deep red and grey.

First, I stamped the latte mug from Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte clear stamp set on a brown Kraft cardstock with Black Memento ink.  I colored with copic markers - Dark Red  (R89), blending a little with the Colorless Blender (0) to mimic a reflection on the mug.

I used Copic - Dark Brown (E47) for the Latte and also blended a little with the Colorless Blender (0).

I cut out the mug using Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte Dies.

Next, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Crimson Red and added all the hearts around it.

I cut out the tag using Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Creative Cuts, scored the two sides to create a more distinct border.

I inked the four sides of the tag with my trusty aged AMM Paper stain ink pad in Chocolate color.

I positioned the mug on the tag to where I would want it to be and shaded a little grey using Copic C5 and C7 for the shadow.  I blended the two tones together with the Colorloess Blender as well.

When all the coloring is done, I adhered the mug on the tag using foam tape.

Next, I cut a small slit at the center where the card folds and run through this very rustic twine and tied a knot at the end of card.

And finally, I adhered the whole tag over the card base with foam tape.

I hope you like this card.  I particularly like Lawn Fawn’s Love You A Latte clear stamp set.  It’s adorable, versatile and you get to make really interesting cards very quickly!  Check out my other cards using this stamp set.
