While working on the heart garland I switched into romantic mood so that I immediately transited into Valentine’s Day cards. Additionally I wanted to use the colorful remains after cutting hearts for the garland. In this way I came up with 3 ideas for Valentine’s Day cards: hearts with a string inscription Love, from the remains after cutting hearts and pink camo. Which one do you like the most?
Supplies for Valentine’s Day cards
- Baker’s twine
- White and red cardboard
- Heart-shaped paper punch
- Color duck tape
- Glitter self-adhesive foil
- Paper glue
- Universal glue
How to make Valentine’s Day cards?
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.
What does this recycled card look like?
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 🙂

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
