A Rick St. Dennis card for Marker Pop Challenge

Hello, all you lovely crafters! I just finished a few new cards, some using the new digis I got from Rick St. Dennis' Etsy shop. If you're not familiar with his work, he does some incredible stuff. Another member of The Outlawz made a card with this digi and when I saw it I knew I had to have it. It's very detailed and pretty... just what I love! I don't celebrate Valentine's Day very often but I love making themed paper craft projects for it. I made this card in shades of pink especially for the current challenge at Marker Pop. You have to use alcohol ink markers for all entries to their challenges and this one was, of course, colored with Copics. It is a gate fold card that measures 5" x 7".

The image is called "Snow Queen" and is available for purchase in Rick's Etsy shop. I believe this glittery heart paper came from K and Company but I'm not 100% positive about that.

I think I must have used nearly every RV shade of pink in my Copic marker box because of all the folds and shadows on her beautiful gown. 


All of the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. The foil heard border is by K and Company from last year's Valentine collection. 

I used the insides of the hearts to make all the little floating hearts shown in this close up. 

Below is the inside of the card. I cut out some of the hearts from scraps of the one paper and adhered them to the other papers I used on the inside to pull the design together. I hope that makes sense.

In addition to the Marker Pop challenge, I am entering this card in the following challenges and/or linky parties:

Marker Pop - #15 Pretty In Pink 
Sparkle and Glitter - #8 Anything But a Square
The Paper Shelter - #96 Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Use Hearts
Whimsical Designs - All About Love

I'll be back tomorrow with another card I made for one of The Outlawz challenges. I hope you enjoyed this one. If you need some inspiration for your own Valentine's Day cards, be sure to visit the Marker Pop blog to see all the other Pretty In Pink entries. I'm sure there will be plenty of projects for that holiday posted there. Until tomorrow...

Happy crafting!
