Happy Valentine's Everyone

Flocked Love Letters


This is the card I made for my other half, and it also fits in with the DCM extra dare - We have Valentines day coming up on the 14th- as you well know, and obviously we have to do a romantic type dare to celebrate! So, this weeks little extra is to give us a card with a romantic theme AND to use both red and black ribbon!


I was so pleased with how the letters came out... I've included a picture of my flocking half way through. I die cut each letter in double sided sticky sheet using a heart shape for the 'V'. I then placed them on the acetate. I peeled off the front protective sheet then put this through swirl die cut. I placed all the pieces back into place like a jigsaw, so that I can cover selective areas in flock. I Flocked first with fun flock, then removed the rest of sheet and covered the swirls in glitter.
I used eyelets to fix the acetate layer in place over DCWV patterned paper, then threaded red and black ribbon through. 'Hugs and kisses' were rub ons under acetate.

It's a shame the flocking didn't come out in the photo very well, it has a lovely texture, very velvety. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentine's! HuGs x

Wonderful card Kim. You've really tempted me with that flocking stuff - but the "Sensible" bit of me yells "Step away" knowing what a dreadful mess I could get myself into with that stuff!
