Quick and Simple Valentine

Here's an idea for making a quick, but cute Valentine Card for those of you who are into last minute projects either by choice or necessity!

Gather the Following Supplies:
2 Different Sized Heart Punches
1 blank folded greeting card
2 small pieces of card stock in coordinating colors/patterns
1 medium size sheet of decorative paper
Glue Stick
Fine-Tip Marker
Chalk Ink Pad
Typewriter, alphabet stamps, or computer

1. Punch 6 hearts from decorative paper using the smaller heart punch.

2. Fold paper hearts in half vertically.

3. Glue the back, right half of one heart to the back, left half of a second heart.

4. Repeat step #3 and continue until you attach all 6 hearts together.

5. Punch a heart out of patterned card stock using large heart punch. Glue the ends of the 3D heart to the larger flat heart, as shown above.

6. Type the work LOVE on a scrap piece of card stock using typewriter, alphabet stamps or computer. I used my trusty vintage Olivetti.

7. Distress the edges of all the papers by inking with a Chalk stamp pad.

8. Draw "stitches" (or another design of your choice) around the perimeter of the folded card using a fine-tip marker. You could also sew real stiches using a sewing machine if you prefer, but the faux stiches are faster.
And "ta-da!" Your card is complete and ready to give - easy peasy!
