Love Notes Card

It’s time to start planning for Valentine’s Day!  I know, many of us are still recovering from the holidays that have passed, but the new ones are quickly approaching and it’s time to honor the ones we love with a special card this Valentine’s Day.  This Love Notes card is perfect for a man or woman and is easy to make using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

The Envelope Punch Board has become one of my favorite tools to have in my supplies.  Its versatility is endless.  You can create the listed envelope sizes for cards that are 2 x 3 ½ to 6 x 8 ½, but did you know that you can create even smaller envelopes with it? It’s fun and easy. Just follow this tutorial to create the card and the envelopes.

1

Begin by create a 5” x 7” card base using black cardstock.  Lay the card base aside to use later.

2

 

Cut three 3” x 3” squares of patterned paper (Black & Kraft Prints 6 x 6 Paper Pad by Canvas Corp. used here) using a paper trimmer.

3

Line the square up in the punch board at the 1 ¾” line and punch and score it.

4

Rotate the square lining it up so that the score line is under the tab on the board as shown in the picture.  Continue to punch and score each side this way until all 4 sides have been completed.  Do this with all 3 of the squares.

5

Fold the squares on the score line and glue them using a strong glue such as Aleene’s Tacky Glue so that they will hold.

6

Once the glue has dried, use a small pair of fine tipped scissors to cut the bottom of the envelope even with the score line on the top.  This will allow the envelope to close more properly.

Now, using red and white cardstock punch several hearts using a heart punch.  The Confetti Heart Punch by Martha Stewart or the Heart Confetti Punch By EK Success are fun to use for this step as it gives you several hearts in different sizes.

Attach the envelopes onto the card base using a tape runner (Scotch Tape Glider used) and arrange the hearts around the envelopes adhering them with a Quickie Glue Pen by Sakura.

Add a sentiment to the inside with one of these fun stamp sets from Create for Less.   Finish your project off by making an envelope using the Envelope Punch Board and your card is now ready to share with the one you love.  Give the gift of a handmade card this Valentine’s Day and let someone know you care!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
