Valentine's Day is not far away and I'm in the process of creating some cards for both family members and friends.
Here's a sampling of what I've made so far:
Yup, the old 'key to my heart' card. I recently decided to clear out my vintage keys but I did keep a few on hand in case I had a brainstorm for repurposing the keys. The paper I used is from some junk mail I keep getting from some insurance company. I added the message and that was about it. Oh, I stuck the key on with paper glue but need to get something sturdier as it (the key, I mean) keeps slipping!
I have a hoard of old stamps and used these to make a card! Anyway, this one goes to my daughter who is the queen of my heart. The little guy who is the king is getting a few pop-up cards that I made after reading a book on how to make these. But - I digress and will post later this week.
To make this card, I just arranged the stamps on a piece of card paper, cut out a heart on another piece of cardstock and voila - a card was
born - made!
I didn't make this one - my crafty friend, Sean made it - but I thought I would post it so you can see how simple and elegant your homemade cards can be. Just bits of little Valentine shapes (the one inside is actually cut from a doily.
Easy peasy, no??
