Valentines Card using Grunge blocks

Happy Friday!!

Today I would am dropping in quick to show you a unusual Valentines card I made for a friend of mine. I was inspired by a layout in "Card Maker's Magazine"

How I made this card:
  • Cut dark tan card stock at 5" by 8" (this will be your card base) 
  • Stamp a flourish only on the bottom and left side with brown distress ink and ink the edges as well using blending tool.
  • Take 6 grunge blocks by Tim Holtz's Idea-ology the same size and drop random drops of  alcohol inks, I used three different colors. (Ginger,Caramel and Latte). Then ink around the edges and top of grunge square with brown distress ink. At the edges add just a touch of black distress ink to make the brown look darker.
  • Add embellishments!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!


Isn't it fun to try all different kinds of cards? This one is different but I still like it b/c you made it. I use different books to make cards at times too especially if I get in a rut or need an idea for a sketch or something. Hugs Friend~Patti
