Make Your Own Valentine Cards

There are still few days left before Valentine’s and if you haven’t bought/made a card yet, now is the time. Today, we have for you an idea how to use ‘unusual elements to send cute messages of love. Our Crew member, Viktoryia Porechnaya, used Canvas Corp Farmhouse Kitchen blank recipe cards and postcards in her project. Have you ever thought of using them this way?

Canvas Corp Valentine Card Ideas

Viktoryia says: ‘Do you want to make special cards for Valentine’s Day? I have some ideas to make them using “unusual” items; I used a recipe card and a pan image from CC Farmhouse Kitchen collection for one and a blank post card and small kraft envelope with postal stamps for the other. To maintain the tradition, rose and red colors, of course, are here – for the lovely heart embellishments.’

Preparation: Spray rose and red mists on white paper. Dry with heating tool. Punch small hearts from it – these will be your embellishments.

Fussy but Canvas Corp Papers to create embellishments for cards, layouts and more.  You will get the look of hand-stamped art with out the prep and the mess.  

For the 1st card, fussy-cut the pan image from Pans& Pots cardstock. Glue the pan and some hearts onto the recipe card.

Canvas Corp Printed Papers are offered in a wide range of colors letting your create the perfect palette for your holiday, birthday, wedding, baby shower or everyday card ideas. 

Add stamps and glue the card to a cardstock base. You can also add some doodling.

Mist on cardstock white paper and turn the paper into special embellishments such as hearts, stars, etc. with scissors or grab your favorite punch that has sat in the drawer stored away.

For the 2nd card, cut a bigger heart from the mist-painted base and glue it onto a sheet of cardstock to create a small Valentine’s card.

Glue the Postal Card to Dots Cardstock creating a contrasting frame.

Canvas Corp offers a wide range of envelopes letting you decide what size cards to make.  They even have a 12×12 kraft envelope.  

Glue the small kraft envelope with cord to Postal Card and add postal stamps on it. Put the small Heart Card inside and add tiny hearts as if they’re flying out of the envelope.

Add a touch of kraft to your bright colors to add a handmade, special feel.  

Your cards are ready! Aren’t they super-cute?
