Hand Cut Letters Valentines
Sometimes less is more. I really liked the simplicity of these cards. Just a simple hand cut word and a paper punch heart glued to the inside to help the words stand out against the plain background. Such a simple way to make Valentines!
To cut out the wording on the front of the card I used a simple crafting (Xacto) knife. But I did have a little help...
The template for this card includes the wording to print backwards onto the inside of the card! So all you have to do is use your craft knife to carefully trace the outlines of the words.
Hand Embroidered Heart InvitationOK so I'll admit it. I just have a "thing" for colored embroidery floss, and striped baker's twine I just love it And I love to embroider things.
I also love hand sewn cards. But they take fooreevveerr...
So I wanted to create an invitation that had a bit of couture to it, but wouldn't take a day and a half to complete. I think this hand embroidered invitation came out looking sweet, and only took a few minutes to complete.
Did I mention there is a printable template to help you along the way?
Yes, there is. This printable template will not only help you create a personalized invite but also make Valentines with a no-brainer hand embroidered heart. There is a simple pattern included on the card.
To make this adorable Valentine invitation or card, start by downloading the printable template. Open the template in Adobe Reader and highlight the text to change it to your liking.
To change the fonts and colors, etc. highlight the text and press Control and E at the same time.
Print the template onto some white cardstock and use the cutting guides to trim the invite/card to size. For a layered card like I show here, you'll want to trim the paper a bit smaller on all side than the 5" by 7" as per the template guides.
The template includes a optional backing sheet. You can use the sheet to make double sided invitations, and simply knot the twine or floss at the end of the embroidery. Or you can choose to do as I did, and tape the string to the backside and layer the plain cardstock over the printed backing sheet. I think it came out really cute this way!
To embroider the paper simply follow the lines on the heart design and use a large sewing needle to hand sew straight onto the paper. Tape the loose threads down at the start and end of the design.
Heart On A String ValentinesThese are a a super simple to make Valentines invitation or card. It's easy! Just start by choosing a fun phrase (or invitation details) and use our template to print it four to a page on a sheet of cardstock.
Trim the paper down using the handy dandy cutting guidelines. I also printed the backing sheet from the Hand Embroidered Valentines Invitation to create the heart for the front of the card.
I used a large heart shaped paper punch to make the heart for the front. I threaded some baking twine onto a large sewing needle and poked it straight through the paper heart. I then taped the string to the back of the cardstock and strung it, along with the heart, across the front of the paper and taped it again to the back.
I then cut a slightly larger piece of red cardstock and glued the two pieces together, centering the papers as best as I could.
Lastly, I attached the papers to a pre-cut scalloped card I picked up at a local Staples office store. The paper was a metallic gold tone which I thought looked nice against the deep red paper. These would look fantastic with a matching envelope and liner!
The Old Tried And True - Make Your Own Valentines!Making handmade Valentines can be so much fun. It is a holiday full of romance and whimsy. Handmade invitations and greetings cards for Valentines day is a perfect opportunity to let your creative side shine, and have a little fun.
