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?
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.’

Viktoryia has also prepared a quick step-by-step for you to follow.
Glimmer Mist let’s you transform any paper into a custom color with just a few sprays with a wonderful touch of mica too.
Preparation: Spray rose and red mists on white paper. Dry with heating tool. Punch small hearts from it – these will be your embellishments.
For the 1st card, fussy-cut the pan image from Pans& Pots cardstock. Glue the pan and some hearts onto the recipe card.
Add stamps and glue the card to a cardstock base. You can also add some doodling.
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.
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.
Your cards are ready! Aren’t they super-cute?
