a couple weeks into the new year, and as expected, valentine's day products are already littering the aisles in shops all over. here is a simple but slightly whimsical flat card that can be easily whipped together. send one or send twenty!
to make these cards, cut a sheet of 8.5"x11" cardstock into four. i used my awesome brand spanking new paper cutter (a christmas gift, thank you, thank you, bff!).
hand cut little hearts with your felt. twelve little hearts, to be exact. three for each card. i used red and pink from my stash.
thread your sewing machine with thread (a color that will pop off the page and go with your hearts-- i used pink), and stitch three hearts down the middle with the centers of the hearts about an inch into the card.
you may find it helpful to use a ruler and lightly mark with a pencil the line down the paper where you intend to sew. cut the threads flush (or you could leave them hanging a little longer if you like) to the card, and you should find yourself with something like this:
how do you feel about valentine's day? love it? hate it? look forward to it every year? wish it didn't exist?
