The cards might be classified as 'Valentine's Day' cards, but I tend to tell my hubby 'I love you' many times a year/ month/ week and not only on the 14th of February. Therefore I decided to make some more cards to give to him in the next few weeks.
Here are the instructions on how to make the card above (see step-by-step pictures below).
- I stamped the heart on a scrap piece of card and cut it out.
- I placed the heart at the front of a white card to create a mask.
- Using black ink I stamped all over the card.
- I removed the heart (you will see a 'white gap' on the card)
- I carefully stamped the heart in red in the 'white gap'.
- I stamped two more red hearts on a piece of white card and cut them out. Using foam pieces I made them 3D. I added a little red ribbon as a finishing touch. Done!
This is the second card I made. I made it in 10 minutes; too easy. I always loved pop-up books and cards as a girl and that hasn't changed! Therefore I decided to make an easy pop-up heart card with lots of 'white space' to write stuff to my hubby!
As a base for this card I used a red card from KaiserCraft. There are 6 cards with matching envelopes for $ 2.00. Here are the instructions on how I made this card. It is too easy!
- I stamped the heart in the middle of the card right on the folding part.
- Using scissors I carefully cut around the heart. I made sure I left about 1 cm on each side to be able to pop it up later.
- I cut a white rectange to go at the front of the card. I stamped 'I just wanted to tell you' at the front. I stamped 'I love you' on the piece with the heart (this will be the inside of the card)
- I stamped some swirls around the corners of both pieces of white cardstock. I stuck the white pieces to the red card and done!
