Valentine's Day...

is almost here! Are you ready? Here's a cute card I made for my special someone. ;)


I used the following chipboard pieces from Magistical Memories:

* One of the "Birds" pieces.
* One of the hearts from "Nesting Heart".

I adhered it all together with a Quick Fix Adhesive Runner from Helmar.

On the heart, I simply sprayed some glimmer mist. But on the bird, I played around a little. I added a couple shades of pink paint. Then I tried the Crackle Medium from Helmar on top.

I really like the way it turned out. And I had never done this technique before...well, only the old fashioned way where I emboss it with several layers, put it in the freezer and then crack it. :) But the Crackle Medium from Helmar was SO easy! It comes with two jars, for two steps. You use one for step one, allow it to dry and then cover it with the step two jar. Then allow it to dry overnight. In the morning it just looks like this...no work involved. :) I know I am probably going to get asked where you can buy it...so, I know you can get it here.

Hope you are able to do something special with a special someone this Valentine's Day! Why not make a card for him too? :)

Have a great day!
