Be Mine

I made this valentine for myself to send this year. I copied the idea from this card:

I started with a precut white and blue card, using the blue for the inside. I decided to duplicate the look by making a heart mask that covers most of the front of the card and stamping the flowers in shades of yellow and blue. My message was a circle instead of a line so I hid it inside the heart. Here’s my duplicate:


Technical specs: a mask is a term used in graphic design. It basically hides some of the background so let a shape appear. To do that with paper, you use it more like a stencil. I grabbed a sheet of printer paper, hand drew the heart, and cut it out using an exacto knife. I then lined up where I wanted the heart to appear and taped it in place. The last step was to stamp.
