Kerry's crafty cards and cuts Feb calender challenge


Greetings from a very wet Tom Price!!

Now the lovely Kerry at 'Kerry's crafty cards and cuts' has supplied us with another sketch for her calendar challenge that she set at the beginning of the year. What happens is we get a sketch for each month and we have to design a card using whatever we want- pretty cool eh!

So here is my card for Feb! I thought with Feb being the month of Love I would go for a romance theme fitting for St Valentines day.

For this I used KC cardstock in Bubblegum, Saturated Canary's awesome stamp 'Free hugs' and KC collection 'Secret Admirer' for the design paper and the same collection collectables.

As you can see there is the beautiful metallic paper that I so love from the KC guys.  I then used the shiny embossed pink paper. On this piece I distressed it using my distress tool.  I then took two coloured hearts from the Collectables range, both different colours and sizes and placed them behind the main part of the card-the mint circle in the middle where 'Free hugs' is going to be mounted. Before I added the main image I took a frost blue piece of ribbon and places it behind the main circle. Then I added my stamped image- Espresso Truffle ink- and coloured her in. Here are the colour combo I used-

Skin- YR000, E21, R01,R20, R30
Hair- E51, E55, YR21, Y17
Eyes- B00
Lips- R32
Jumper- BG05, BG10
Pants- Y06, Y02, YR31
Coupons- BV23, BV20,BV31

I then added dimensional magic to her ribbons which were coloured in R20 and R01 first.

I then added the collectable buttons from the KC collection to the side of the card.  The sentiment is then places slightly peeping over the top of the main image with the phrase 'Love' which is what Feb is all about!

Hope you enjoy guys!

And here it is!
