Master class on making cards for the day of St. Valentine
1. For this card is used delicate pink designer cardboard with embossed. Fold the sheet in half.
2. Cut the music page into several arbitrary parts. One part is cut in the shape of a heart (the widest point is 11 cm). Using a cigarette lighter to artificially age notes. Burn the edges of the notes, then lightly hold the fire under the surface of the paper to give it the effect of old yellowness. (To work with fire carefully, children need to ask adults for help!)
3. Using a prepared heart of notes, outline on sackcloth a heart of the same shape, but larger, about 1.5-2 cm across the edge.
4. Cut out of burlap a contoured heart with the widest part of 14 cm and one smaller one - 6 cm wide.
5. Cover the edge of a large heart with gold lacquer for 1 cm, this will help strengthen the burlap threads along the edge and give the heart the effect of golden old metal. Allow to dry.
6. Cover the heart of a smaller size with red lacquer throughout the area.
7. Cut household twine 110 cm long. Cut it into three parts: 80, 15 and 15 cm.
8. Cover the entire string with red acrylic paint. Small errors in coverage are not scary. Leave to dry. For acrylic paint, 10 minutes are sufficient for complete drying.
9. The edge of the dried up small heart by 0.5 cm. We also coat it with red acrylic paint. Paint and varnish will create contrasting shades of red.
10. Glue the aged parts of the notes, except the heart of the notes, onto the base of the postcard with glue, slightly changing the direction of the notes. On this musical sheet will be superimposed all the details of the postcard.
11. Stick a big heart with a gold edge in the bottom right of the postcard. From above on it to paste heart from notes.
12. In the upper left corner glue the dried little heart out of the burlap, placing it diagonally.
13. From designer paper or old postcards, cut out two soaring angels facing each other.
14. Glue the angels from both sides of the bottom of the small heart from the burlap.
15. Separate the heart from the long part of the colored twine.Immediately stick it on top of the heart of the notes at the bottom of the postcard.
16. Twist the spiral monograms from two small pieces of twine.
17. Glue the monogram, in the opposite corners of the postcard.
The postcard is ready. The simplicity and some coarseness of the materials gives the postcard a touch of antiquity. The notes symbolize the music of two lovers' hearts, and guardian angels will protect a loved one from adversity.
Give your loved ones joy!
