I Love You – Ink, Blend & Pop up card!

I Love You – Ink, Blend & Pop up card!

Happy Tuesday crafters, and welcome to my latest craft project! I have been really keen to blog about this for a while, but it was a card I made for my boyfriends birthday, and I couldn’t risk him popping on and having a peek!

I started with the outer card first and blended Vintage photo D.I with Victorian Velvet D.I. I wanted to make the card quite dark as it was for my boyfriend, and didn’t want to make it too girly.

On the left hand, top corner of the card I used a stamped heart and the word love.

For the heart, I cut it free hand and stamped lightly using vintage photo, and then edged it in vintage photo, but being much heavier to make a darker outline.

For the love, I lightly stamped using Vintage Photo and Victorian Velvet. I stamped the word love, using my Tim Holtz stamps with Victorian Velvet D.I. And then roughly tore around it and edged with Vintage Photo.

For dream and wish seen above I used the same technique as I did for the ‘love’ part.

I found this beautiful stamp in my collection, and stamped onto the corner of the card using Victorian Velvet D.I.

Again, using Victorian Velvet I stamped a little heart in the other corner.

On the centre of the card I chose two squares layers over each other. I used Vintage Photo D.I to stamp.

On the underneath on, I used Vintage Photo to stamp some writing, using my Tim Holtz stamps.

On the top, I stamped a quote, also using Vintage Photo and a stamp from Tim Holtz.

I then roughly tore the squares and edged with Vintage Photo.

For the inside of the card I first stamped the inside of the top card (the card I had just been working on the front of) using Vintage Photo D.I. This is so that when I did the pop up you could see the colour through the heard and behind the letters. I set this card aside.

Then I took another card and stamped with Old Paper D.I and edged with Vintage Photo D.I to give an old look.

Then using a craft knife I cut out the letters and heart and bent it in to shape.

I then glued this card inside the first card to make a pop up card.

 

I was pleased with how it turned out, and he was too!

 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
