5 Easy Valentine's Day Card Video!

Hello!  I'm so excited because we've got a Process Video! Woohoo!  I'm always excited when I find such talent around the web and they agree to guest for our YouTube Channel!  Kristina from Crafty Paws is guesting for the next two video slots and we couldn't be happier! 

So without further adieu, here's Kristina to explain her process!  Once you're done reading all about it, you could watch her video down below or view it on our YouTube channel!

 

Hi there! It’s Kristina CraftyPaws here with a guest designer project for The Greeting Farm. It was love at first sight when I saw all the cute couples in The Greeting Farm stamp sets: "#couplegoals" and "Forever With You". So I decided to make a bunch of quick and easy Valentine’s Day cards picking the images that I thought could represent my parents, my older sister and her husband, my niece and her boyfriend, my nephew and his girlfriend, and a crafty friend who loves cats and her hubby.

 

 

Then I went through and Copic colored each couple as follows:

Senior Couple Sharing a Scarf:
Hair: C00, C0, C3, C5, C7 with a Signo Uniball White Gel Pen
Skin: E50, E51, R30

Shirt and White Stripe in Hat: C1 and 0 Blender Marker
Red Shoes and Red Stripe in Hat: R24, R27, R29

Couple with Hats:

Girl Hair, Girl Shirt and Boy Hat Red Stripe: R81, R83, R85, R89 with stripes drawn with a Copic Multiliner Pen
Siamese Cat and Boy's Pants: E84, E87, E89
Girl Skirt, Boy Shirt, and Boy Hat Grey Stripe: C3, C4, C6
Boy Hat White Stripe: C0

I fussy cut each couple, inked the edges of the cut images with a Memento Tuxedo Black Marker for a finished look, and made each of the couples the main focal point of the card fronts. I used an old Darice Love Themed dies set and a retired Doodlebug Designs Lovebirds paper stack to simply frame the images and accent the cards inside and out. The scalloped heart frame die cuts and the "Xs" and "Os" die cuts were stacked and glued together for added depth, and the couples were all adhered with foam dots to add dimension and interest. I was also able to use up all the scraps to decorate and line the inside of the cards!
