Love Letters!

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, so it's time to get busy making love-themed cards so that you can get them in the mail to arrive on time. 

That's just what Mr. Fox is doing in my card using the Fox Mail unmounted rubber stamp by Katzelkraft which you can find out Topflight Stamps!

  1. Cut a piece of dark red 12x12 cardstock in half. Score one piece in half and fold to form a 6" square card.
  2. Stamp the image using Memento ink onto white cardstock and color using Copic markers. 
  3. After coloring the mailbox with the dreaded red Copic markers and be all happy, realize that one of your E markers has gone gummy and messed up your coloring.
  4. Try to repair your coloring with the colorless blender. 
  5. Epic fail.
  6. Decide to try to repair your wrecked fox using Prismacolor pencils, especially because you had just organized your colored pencils so you can actually use them. Serendipity for the win! 
  7. Blend out the colored pencils using a Prismacolor colorless blender.
  8. Stamp the image onto Masking Magic, fussy-cut, and adhere over the image to mask it.
  9. Apply Removable Scotch Tape along the base of the image.
  10. Sponge Periwinkle Prism ink over the masked image onto the image panel.
  11. Place the Grid of Hearts stencil onto the inked image panel.
  12. Randomly sponge Periwinkle Prism ink over the stencil to add subtle hearts.
  13. Randomly sponge Pink Jellybean Prism ink over stencil. This will blend with the blue hearts in some places and add pink hearts in other places.
  14. Trim the image panel and mat with dark red cardstock cut from the other half of the 12x12 sheet cut previously.
  15. Trim 'xoxo' patterned paper .5" larger than the red cardstock, edge with a pink marker, and use to mat the image panel.
  16. Cut another piece of dark red cardstock slightly larger than the xoxo piece. and adhere the image to it forming a triple mat. 
  17. Cut the red 'love' paper to 5.75" square. Edge with a dark red marker and adhere to the 6" square card.
  18. Adhere the image panel as shown.
  19. Die-cut the polka-dot patterned paper with the Envelope die three times, fold down the flaps, and edge with a dark grey marker.
  20. Use the same die to cut three hearts from a leftover scrap of the dark red cardstock.
  21. Adhere the hearts to the envelopes.
  22. Adhere the envelopes to the card to finish it up.
