Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here with my latest project for
The Robin's Nest.
This project is actually a trio of 2 Valentine cards,
and a romantic themed tag.
First, The Robin's Nest Supply list.
Classic Roses Cardstock
Hearts Dew Drops
Valentine Hearts Cardstock
Glitter Word Titles (Valentine)
Red Rope Glitter Cardstock
Doilie Die Cuts
Various Robin's Nest Clippies
Various Dew Drops
Scraperfect Best Glue Ever
For each card, I chose a square 5x5 white heavy weight card as the base.
With the first card, I went with a king & queen of heart theme, lightly inking & distressing the edges of the cardstock, and sticking with playing card colors of black, white & red.
With the second card, I followed the same techniques, in distressing the edges with ink and a distressing tool, as well as texture embossing with a French word embossing folder.
I chose the "romantic themed chippies to give an old French feel.
For the tag, I chose some famous classic movie kisses as the theme, and used the glittered title "Kiss Me" as it's focal point.
And the back, the Valentine heart was perfect to complete the tag.
The Robin's Nest cardstock I chose to use is double sided, and worked AMAZING for layered & coordinating cards
The great variety of color, shape & size of the Dew Drops, ad just the right amount to flair to each card.
Looks like I have a bit of a head start on Valentines cards.
