Are you ready to share the love this Valentine’s Day? If not, here’s a great card that can be finished quickly so you can be ready. It’s time to get to making those cards you will need because February 14th is fast approaching!
Create the card base from cardstock. This base is a 4” x 6” base, but any size can be made. Glue a piece of twine down the edge of it making sure to leave some space to the left of the twine as show.
Now take a piece of twine and measure to be approximately 9 inches. Do not cut it off the spool just yet. This will make sure you have enough for the next step in case you need a little extra.
Move up from the bottom of it about 8” and tie a bow. Don’t worry. It doesn’t have to be exact. Also, cut the piece off the spool at the 9” mark on the ruler.
Place one of the larger hearts on the card base and make note of where the center is on the base. Run a line of glue the length of the base in that area.
Lay the twine you created with the bow in the glue and secure it. Allow it to dry.
Place some 3-d adhesive on the back of each heart making sure to not place them in the center.
Place the two larger heart on the piece of twin attaching them with a piece of 3-d adhesive. Note: If you want to tuck the sentiment in behind the hearts don’t push the adhesive securely down yet or make sure that is not down in the area of where you will be placing the sentiment.
Now, attach the smaller heart in between the two larger ones.
Trim off the excess twine with a pair of scissors.
If want the bow to lay flat you can put a little glue down to hold it. Otherwise, just fluff it up a little and adjust it until it is how you like it.
Cut down a piece of cardstock in a matching color that is a little larger than your sentiment. Keep in mind that it must be able to fit onto the corner area of your card. This is where tucking it behind the heats a little bit helps if you have a larger type on your chosen stamp. Adhere it to the card.
Finish the inside of the card with a separate message.
Don’t delay! Get the items you will need to make this awesome card in time to share with the one you love. Don’t forget, though, it’s great to share the love any day so if you miss February 14th don’t let it stop you. Love is to be shared any day of the year and you can do it with this card.
