For making this card, I used the symbols of vintage Valentine's Day postcards: dove, love letter, forget-me-not flower, love text.
And of course, I used Tim Holtz dies and his new 3D embossing folder.
Here is my tutorial.
I took a light blue textured cardstock and with a Sizzix Rectangle die, I cut out the first layer of my card.
I spritzed with water and embossed it with the Botanical embossing folder.
I smeared white acrylic paint onto the surface.
I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink, then with white acrylic paint. I also splattered the surface with diluted Frayed Burlap Distress reinker and white acrylic paint.
I drew a circle and started to glue the pieces of the wreath one after another. For the greenery, I used the Mini Holiday Greens and green textured cardstock.
When I was ready with the wreath I cut out 4 flowers using one of the smallest dies of the Small Tattered Florals and for the middle one of the little flowers of Funky Florals 1.
I cut out the dove from 300gsm watercolour paper with Enchanted Doves Bigz die and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap.
For the text, the number and the love letter, I used the Valentine Side Order die set.
