Amy is My Aqua Valentine series last year inspired me to combine the blue and fuchsia colors in this card. And a little neon confetti notebook that I have this summer, the reason I revealed the card with scattered hearts.
Here’s how to make handmade Valentine's day cards with Mod-hodgepodge!
Handmade Valentine's day cards
Mod smorgasbord of Satin
White and pink silk paper
Heart-shaped paper punch
step 1. Cut a 8.5" by 11" piece of white cardstock in half (5.5" x 8.5"). Fold to create the piece in the middle, which is a small card that is 4.25" wide and 5.5" high. Cut out a smaller image of the blue cardstock to fit the front of the card. (mine is 3.75" x 5")
step 2. You use a paper to shock, a couple of little hearts from white and pink tissue paper.
step 3. Apply a thin layer of decoupage on one side of the blue paper.
Working quickly, drop the little heart in the decoupage. I laid me down randomly and not really a pattern in my head (because I live dangerous like that, haha!). I only have a small pink heart I stabbed it with the white forms.
step 4. After the Mod-hodgepodge dries to a Satin, wear another thin layer of decoupage over the tissue paper to seal the paper heart, and protect it. The layer allow to dry.
step 5. Stamp the sweet sentiment on the inside of the card. If you want a little cutting and a couple of pink hearts on the inside of the card, also.
step 6: Use double sided tape or scrapbook adhesive and attach the blue panel of paper to the front of the card. Sign the card and give it to your loved one! It's that easy!
I have never liked a valentines card with decoupage before, and I how easy it was to create! The strokes of the brush in the decoupage to give my Valentine’s Day card character and a 'hand-made' texture.
And I love the transparency of the tissue paper layers. I bet it would be nice for the use of multi-colored papers and other forms, to. I can't wait to get more cards for other holidays!
