Will you be my valentine? (DeNami Designs)
Today I am showing you this fun and interactive Valentines card. I used the sentiment "Will you be my valentine?" that I printed on vellum and wanted the question to be answered right away. Therefore I came up with the idea to include the answer in the card. The recipient of the card is able to pull on the golden flap on the right side of the card and the "lonely" coffee cup will change into the picture of it and a donut. I think the little heart above the two images lets them seem to be in love. I really liked that.
To create this card I used this heart background that I actually found in a magazine. It has foiled hearts in it and I thought it would be just perfect! I cut out a circle from the paper that was big enough for the second image of the coffee cup and the donut.
I stamped the little coffee cup and the cup and donut on white cardstock and spaced them accordingly. I also stamped the a little donut individually because I thought it would be fun to adhere him near the sentiment as if he is asking the question. I colored the images with alcohol markers.
I adhered the patterned paper to a card base making sure not to apply the adhesive where I wanted the flap to be. At first I wanted the word "yes" to appear on the white flap but I didn't like that and covered it with golden washi tape later.
To finish of my card I adhered the vellum and the little donut to the patterned paper.
