Cards - Valentine's Day 2009

Here is my Valentine's day cards for 2009.

These are really very easy and FAST to make. I used ClubScrap's FIZZ kit for these particular cards, the colors and stamps are perfect for Valentine's day cards.

Supplies needed:
2-3 complimentary papers/cardstock
"Heart" sizzix diecut
scoring tool/bone folder

To create these cards, follow these steps:

1. Cut a piece of paper into a square 8.5 inch by 8.5 inch.

2. Score a line from one corner to the opposite corner. Fold in half and burnish fold with bone folder.

3. Measure down from top corner (the one *not* on the fold mark) 3.5 inches.

4. Fold opposite lower corner (one on the fold) to the marking. Repeat with the opposite side.

5. Score a line at the top along the edge where the two flaps folded up overlap.

6. Fold the top flap down and tuck into 'pocket' on top. This will hold the whole thing together snuggly.

7. Cut some squares 3in x 3in. Cut in half corner to corner.

8. Rubberstamp images or sentiments onto these triangular pieces.

9. Adhere the triangular pieces to the card as shown.

10. Diecut 'heart shapes' out and rubberstamp sentiment.

11. Hole punch two small holes in top of heart and tie a piece of ribbon through the holes. Adhere to front of card.

12. Now you are done, you can ink edges if desired. Add a card to the inside - I printed photos of my kiddos and matted onto some complimentary cardstock to insert, but you could also drop a few candies in the envelope as well.
