Kiss, Kiss, Kiss by Sioux Jenneys

Hi...are you ready for Valentines day? Made that card for your special someone? No?

Well this card just might fit the bill ;)


1. Stamp "The Kiss" image onto card three times using three different colours of ink -  I used Archival black and Distress Ink vintage photo and brushed corderuy.

2. I find it quicker and easier to cut myself a window template out of card (I used a moo sized window 2.8cm x 7cm) and place over the images to get just the right position...it's just a matter of drawing a line round the inside edge and cutting out.


3. Cut three mats out of black card 3mm bigger than your images and use a gold pen to edge both the images and the black mats before sticking together. 

4. Stamp the "Owl Scroll" from Haunted Mansion plate onto the square kraft card base in Distress Ink aged mahogany and emboss with Distress Embossing Powder vintage photo for a bit of extra texture.

5. Stamp the quotation from The Kiss stamp onto another moo sized piece of card in Distress Ink aged mahogany and emboss with clear powder. 

6. Cut a decorative bottom edge with the plaque on the edge die and round off the top corners.

7. Attach the quotation over the scroll with sticky pads or silicone glue and space the three kiss images evenly leaving space to add some small red pearls as an accent.



There is still lots of time to enter the monthly love is in the air challenge:)

Why not try a repeat image of one of your favourites?

See you again soon!
