Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! It's Designer Challenge time and for our February 2024 challenge, we were asked to create a card with hearts!!! For my card, I used the Photo Collage Pop-Up to create this Valentines Day card.
For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base using a heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I then dug through my stash and found this great heart patterned paper.
I die cut the pop-up mechanism from a pink cardstock and glued it into my card. Then I die cut all my photo frames. I used a smooth white cardstock for the background and then two different colors of red cardstock for the polaroid frame. I used a heart stencil and Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry to create the heart backgrounds.
I then dug out a bunch of my animal dies and started creating the animals for the photos. I used the following animals dies for this card:
- Monkey and Lion
- Safari Animals
- Chicken, Pig and Lamb
- Feathered Animals
- Spring Animals
- Cat and Dog
I also added the push pins and clips from the Photo Collage Pop-Up, making them more Valentines Day appropriate by adding hearts and making the push pins pink.
How adorable are those animals? It took an entire day of creating the animals because I color them all using Copic markers, but it was well worth the time. I also added some glitter gel and Glossy Accents to some items to give them some dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
