Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away now so why not get your craft on and make someone a handmade Valentine’s Day card? This card is super simple and quick to make, but giving a card you have made shows real love!
All you need is a blank card, either purchase a ready folded one or just cut a piece of card to the size you want, two different colour felt sheets, a button, needle and thread, heart template, glue or double sided tape, ribbon and a sentiment. The sentiment shown here is one I stamped and layered on to three different layers of card.
Firstly you need to cut out the templates you want to use, I always use this free printable heart template which I found on Pinterest, you will need three separate sizes. Draw around the templates on to your felt and cut out, I have used two colours but you could use three shades of the same colour if you like.
Next take your needle and thread and sew the hearts together in the centre and finish with sewing the button on through the centre
Once you have sewn your hearts together, using glue or double sided table fix a piece of ribbon across the front of your card and attach the sentiment of your choice – you could always print something off with your computer and printer if you don’t have rubber stamps. Then using either wet glue or double sided tape, fix the large heart to the front of your card. Done!
I hope you will enjoy making this simple Valentine’s Day card, I love crafting with felt and its so simple it would be great to craft with children but sending any handmade card to those you love is always a good thing in my book.
