How to make Valentine’s Day cards?

Card’s base

In all cards I used the last page of the drawing block as the base, this is a thick sheet in a gray-brown shade. I really like this material because it is minimalist and rustic at the same time. I also added a white center to each card because the red hearts looked better against a white background.

Preparation of hearts for Valentine’s Day cards

When making Valentine’s Day cards, I used hearts that I produced while creating the Valentine’s Day garland. Hence for details, I encourage you to visit the post about heart garland. There are tips on how to make glitter hearts, colored duck tape and self-adhesive foil hearts.

Idea 1 – Valentine’s Day card with hearts and string inscription Love

To make this version of the card, I used 4 different hearts and the baker’s twine. Each heart is different: glitter, from colorful duck tape, from self-adhesive foil and from red cardboard. I glued the hearts in a shape of a four-leaf clover.

I created the inscription Love from baker’s twine in white and red color. In bending points I glued it with universal glue.

Idea 2 – Valentine’s Day card from waste after cutting hearts

This is a recycling version, which I am particularly proud of. After cutting out the hearts, colorful stripes were formed with evenly cut heart shapes. Although I had not planned it before.

I used 3 such strips and glued them on a square-shaped base. With the letter stamps I made the Love sign so that the card is more interesting.

Idea 3 – pink camo card

To make the last card I used 3 hearts cut from colored duck tape, but this time I arranged them vertically. In addition, I covered the edges of the card with pink camo tape, thanks to which the card looks a bit wild 🙂
