I decided to use Barbara Gray’s trap the scrap technique together with the Clarity New Design Die Club heart (#13) from last January to create two clean and simple Valentine’s cards.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 8cm x 8cm and die cut the Heart die in the centre.
Carefully remove the die cut leaving the scrap in the die. Add a piece of double-sided adhesive sheet to the die to remove the scrap and trim close to the edge.
Trim a piece of red card to 8.5cm x 8.5cm and add the adhesive sheet to the centre. Once pressed firmly into place add a layer of talc and buff up to remove the stickiness of the exposed areas.
Add the topper to a 10cm x 10cm white card blank.
To finish the first card, add one of the SHAC Feel Good stickers.
For the second card, take another 10cm x 10cm white card blank and stamp directly onto the front in shades of red archival ink (Carnation Red, Vermillion, Poppy and Red Geranium). Use stamps from the Mixed Media Journal set and the original Journaling stamp set from Clarity.
Brush Rosy Cheeks Artistry ink over the front of the card using a Clarity stencil brush.
Once the front of the card is covered, add the original die cut topper.
Colour the hearts with a red Kuretake Clean Colour pen.
To finish, add one of the SHAC Feel Good stickers.
