Peachy Keen - Valentine Cupids
The card stock size is 12" x 6", scored at 3" and 9". I then decorated the 2 front sections with heart paper from my stash and, using the largest Spellbinders Heart, positioned and taped the die, cutting side up (very important) onto the card stock where the mouse image ended up. In other words, the inside of the card. I then ran it through the Bigshot and was a little disappointed at ending up with an indentation on the inside of the card. Once I had die cut the heart for the image I realised the indentation helped a lot with the exact placement of the heart inside the card.
The Peachy Keen image Valentine Cupids was stamped onto watercolour paper using black Archival ink and coloured in with a paintbrush and Distress Inks Victorian Velvet, Iced Spruce and Picked Raspberry (for the bow). The sentiment is from the same Peachy Keen set and was die cut using MFT First Place Award Ribbon.
