Hello crafty friends… Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is less than a month now! Today I would like to share these ideas of sending love with handmade cards.
I always love making projects with stencils and this time, I used stencils to create all the backgrounds on these 3 cards. When I use stencils, I not only get 1 print but 3 or 4 prints. To create these stenciled backgrounds, I used Distress Oxide sprays and watercolor paint with the Heart Duo Stencils using spray over stencil technique, stamping with stencil technique, and ghosting with stencil technique.
First card, I cut the stenciled panel with Rectangle Framelit Dies and I popped up the middle panel with 3D foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Hello Word Die set. I embellished it with some gems. This is a quick and simple card to make.
The second card, I used the Rectangle Framelit Dies to cut the background panel and added it to the card with permanent adhesive runner tape. And then, I make a tag shaker with Mini Hugs Tag Die set. I also cut the sentiment word from the same die set. The flower is from the Breezy Blossoms Stamp Set and I cut it with the matching Blossoms Die.
This third card is a mini slimline card and also a clean and simple card. I cut a pink card stock and the stenciled panel with the Slim Mini Wavy Layers Die. And then, I cut the heart shape using the heart die from the Heart Background Die and I used 3D foam tape to pop it up on the card. The sentiment is from the Love You Double Layered Word Die, I cut the little heart in the middle of the phrase with scissors and I added it to the card with permanent adhesive glue.
You can make these cards with supplies you have and can be sent out to anyone at any time you need to, not only on the Valentine’s Day. Let’s spread some love with handmade cards!
