So it’s Valentine’s Day next week and I’ve made a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards (because I love a lot of people!). But I was thinking these cards would also be great as Anniversary cards or even “just because” cards. Just because? Sure, there’s times when someone has gone through a hard time but you don’t want to do a “thinking of you” or “I know you’re feeling crappy” card. A greeting card that simply says “I heart you” can mean a lot.
So this is the first card I made in the set. Retro Card Style Tip: I’ve gone for the retro look and to pull that look together I’ve used a film strip die (very retro!), slightly distressed/shabby patterned paper and a cute button to match.
And here’s a group shot of a few of the cards I’ve made. All the background papers are from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Stack – very hand for a crafter like me who doesn’t want to fuss… just peel off a sheet and trim down a little.
These were really quick & easy and super fun to make. Just trim down some white cardstock to the size you’d like to go on your card. Add some patterned paper (trimmed down a little smaller than the white cardstock) on top. Tie some bakers twine around the card. Die Cut silver glitter paper with the film strip die. Die Cut the “I heart U” in red cardstock and stick it all together. The button was attached with some glue dots. Finishing touch is a little rhinestone in the heart.
