Project #73: Valentine Scratch Cards
What’s better than receiving a note that tells you just how special you are? One with a hidden message that is revealed after you scratch away the surface.
* Red card
* Gold pen
* Clear contact paper
* Gold paint
* Dishwashing liquid
* Paint brush
Step one: Draw a love heart on your red card and write a message to someone you like inside the heart. Repeat if required.
Step two: Cut out your hearts and cover them with clear contact paper. Cut off the excess contact paper from around the edges of the heart.
Step three: Mix one part dishwashing liquid to two parts gold paint. Paint over the inside of your heart using light strokes. Allow to dry and reapply a second coat, if required to cover your message.
Step four: When your heart is completely dry, place in an envelope. The person you love will be able to scratch off the gold paint using a coin or fingernail to reveal the message underneath.
.. Little. Lovely...
