Distress Ink spattered Valentines Card – 2 Crafty Little Sisters

Distress Ink spattered Valentines Card - 2 Crafty Little SistersToday I was having a lazy morning and decided to have a pajama craft day!  I stayed in my jammies, grabbed a cup of coffee and headed down to create.  I decided to play with my distress inks to create the background for this card…and then I spattered some water on it to give it a fun touch.

Distress Ink spattered Valentines Card Tutorial

I started with a piece of red cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″,  scored it at 4-1/4″ to make my card blank 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, then I cut a piece of white cardstock 5-1/4″ x 4″.

I used my dauber in a circular moton to put on distress ink using Candied apple and worn lipstick.

Then I spritzed water onto the page to remove the ink in spots.

When it dried it looked like this.

I adhered a piece of red ribbon around the top of the card about an inch down from the top, and adhered this to the red card base.

I ran various sized heart dies through my bigshot to get several hearts, approximate sizes: 2″, 1-1/2″ and 3/4″.  I made them in different shades of pink and red cardstock.

I used my Colorbox chalk ink to color the edges.
Then I sprayed the hearts with sparkle shimmer.

I ran a piece of white cardstock through my bigshot using my Lawn Fawn scallop edge die 1″ x 2-1/4″ and stamped Happy Valentines Day with my Hampton Arts Love Words stamp set with Lawn Fawn Lobster.

I cut a piece of red cardstock slightly larger and adhered it to the stamped piece.

Tie a knot of red ribbon and adhere it to the front of the ribbon band.

I adhered everything to the front of the card as shown, stamped the inside with a fun sentiment and its ready to send!
