Love is in the air...
Valentines Day is getting close and I wanted to share a few card ideas, as well as, some treat ideas over the next couple weeks. Enjoy!
1 - 12 x 12 sheet of cream or white card stock
1 - Brown card stock
1 - Patterned piece of paper (pink polka dots on cream paper used in example)
3 or more colors of darning thread
Pen or pencil
Mouse pad or cork board
I tried to make this card using things that you might have at home already.
The first step is cutting your card stock.
Cut cream or white card stock to 10 x 6 1/2 in. then fold it to 5 x 6 1/2 in.
(you can also purchase pre-made card bases at Michaels in bulk).
Cut brown card stock to 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 in
Cut patterned card stock to 4 1/2 x 6 in.
Now you are almost done. Just adhere your patterned card stock to the brown card stock. Then your brown card stock to your cream or white card and your finished!! These are simple, fast and budget friendly cards to make for Valentines Day. You can play around with spelling out different sayings (just make sure to write them backwards) or you can use some cute glitter letter stickers to spell out your sentiment.
I'll post a few more card idea using different tools and products soon.
