Hey there Altenew friends, it's Jaycee! Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to show your love and appreciation than with a handmade card? I'm excited to share with you two stunning Valentine's Day cards that I created in my latest YouTube tutorial.
Valentine's Day Cards with Concentric Outlines
Both cards feature a gorgeous Chrome Sentiments Stencil, which gives the illusion of metallic sentiments on the card.
The first card showcases the sentiment “I Love You” in a beautiful gradient of berry and pink colors. I demonstrated how to achieve the chrome-like effect through careful blending and masking techniques.
I then added fun artful elements using Acrylic Markers and a mix of bold colors to enhance the sentiment.
Paint Drop Graffiti Card
For the second card, I chose the sentiment “You Are Awesome” and used a different color palette of green and yellow.
I again demonstrated how to create gradients and outlines to achieve the metallic illusion. This time, I added paint blobs and bubbles around the sentiment for a playful and artistic touch. Using the A Fresh Start Stamp Set, I added additional graphic motifs in coordinating colors to fill the background of the card.
Both cards are truly works of art and would make the perfect Valentine's Day cards for that special someone in your life.
Whether you prefer the romantic berry and pink hues of the first card or the vibrant green and yellow tones of the second card, you can't go wrong with these stunning handmade creations.
