PaperFacesDesigns Valentine

Just as some places have two seasons – Winter and Road Construction – crafters have Holidays and Decorating. I'm already anticipating Valentine's Day, so I decided to start with this adorable PaperFacesDesigns image.

I'm still learning how to use Copic markers, and this was a perfect way to practice. Many, many thanks go to the Mad for Markers blog for their coloring tutorials and guides. I've listed the ones I listed for this project at the bottom of this post.

Although there are a ton of elements on the cards, it's sort of precious at 4x4 inches. I'm going to have to make more of this one!

For this super-simple easel card, I cut a 12x4 piece of cardstock and folded it at four, six and eight inches. Then I taped the figure onto the extra cardstock and traced with scissors. To make the card, I glued down the figure and made a pop-up square to hold the other image.
