Rainbow color schemes are hot, text design elements are hot, and washi tape is hot. And designer Terri Davenport managed to get them all in to one card!

The main part of this card is digital, which allowed Terri to create a special effect. To get the effect of the text sentiment in between the stripes in the pattern, Terri selected a digital patterned paper, and then added the text into the pattern digitally before printing it and adhering it to the card.

This simple, clean and bright card is a great design to have on hand because it is great for a lot of uses – kids and young people, men, teachers, and so many other people would just love this card!

Supplies | Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (Raven). Digital Patterned Paper: Designer Digitals (Striped Mix: Rainbow Paper Pack No. 1 by Katie Pertiet). Tape: Bella Blvd. Font: Adrianstars.

Would you like to make your own valentine’s monster? It’s easier than it looks – here’s how:

Instructions:

1. Cut grasshopper cardstock to 4×9.

2. Create a trifold card with folds at the 2.5 and 6.5 inch marks. Adhere the edges of the bottom fold to the side of the card to create a pocket.

3. Print sentiment on white paper. Add patterned paper and sentiment to pocket.

4.  Punch circles of differing sizes from raven and white cardstock to create eyes. Hand cut ears from patterned paper and teeth from white cardstock. (Don’t worry about matching. Imperfections will only add to the monster’s charm.

5. Adhere pieces to card to create the face.

When you are done, fill the pocket with candy, gum, or a gift card.

This monster isn’t just for Valentine’s Day! The sentiment could also be changed to make it appropriate for a birthday or lots of other uses.

Supplies | Cardstock: Coredinations (Grasshopper), Bazzill Basics (Raven) and Papertrey Ink (white). Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd (Birthday Boy collection). Circle punches (Fiskars).
