Gingerbread Valentine's Day Card

Posted on December 31 2020

Hello, hello! It's Lynnea! I am a true lover of Christmas and I'm not quite ready to put away my Holiday goodies! I used the LDRS Creative Gingerbread Kisses Pocket Pals Stamp Set to make a Slim Line Pocket Valentine's Day Card! 
I love how thoughtful LDRS Creative products are! The two little gingerbread men holding a banner in the Gingerbread Kisses Pocket Pals Stamp Set can be used for any occasion! Sure - gingerbread men are traditionally Holiday cookies, but I'm all for stretching my supplies! I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the image onto white cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating Gingerbread Kisses Pocket Pals Die Set to cut out the image with a perfect white border. 
I cut the Slim Line Basket Weave Pocket Die from red cardstock and created a 3" x 5.5" white card base. I also cut the Love You Die as well as a Stitched Heart from white cardstock. As I assembled my card I thought it was just too stark white. Don't get me wrong - I love white! It's my favorite neutral, but because I had used some light browns in my Gingerbread Kisses image everything was clashing. I grabbed a blending brush and my Iced Tea Hybrid Ink Pad and blended ink onto the bottom of each letter and my stitched heart to create a dipped dye look. It's something I used to do all the time and I love the look! 
I blended Iced Tea Hybrid Ink onto my card base to match my die cut elements and assembled my card. I used foam tape behind the heart, gingerbread men, as well as the sentiment for dimension. I hope this gives you some inspiration for using your Holiday stamps for other occasions! See you soon!

    Lovely design, the brown is just perfect with the bright red.
