I love making cards!

I love being able to make my own cards, but like most of you, there never seems to be enough hours in the day for me to do all that I would like to do. Once again, these were Pinterest inspired cards.cardcardMaterials Used

Because I have never taken time to learn print and cut, I do things my way. :~) I cut the white paper to the size I wanted, designed the saying in KNK Studio and exported the image to word. I selected a 4×6 paper size in word and then printed the saying on the paper. I then placed the paper on my mat and selected the right hand corner as the origin and cut the hearts. In order to make the large heart I just made a big heart, filled it randomly with little hearts, moved them to where I wanted them and then deleted the large heart. Because these cards only involve cutting a design and printing them you can make a bunch quickly. The files are below. Enjoy!

Stand Alone Cards with Hearts & Shamrocks

Heart and shamrock shapes bear a universal message of love and good fortune.  This time of year they suggest Valentine’s Day, which is just a couple weeks away and St. Patrick’s Day in March.  But they work for other occasions, as well.

Both of these cards were created using the heart and shamrock shapes to convey a message without a lot of text.  The greeting is cut out at the same time the top layer and pull tab are cut to shape. The second cutting consists of a red or green backing for the top layer and matching hearts and shamrocks.  The small hearts and shamrocks are glued on the matching shapes in the center of the card and on the pull tab.  The pull tab gives a place for a personal message.

The basic shape of this card can be easily modified for a vinyl message by simply cutting the shape without the greeting cutouts.  Consider adapting the shamrocks into a graduation card and the thank you card into a Valentine card.

My 15” KNK Maxx makes it fun to create cards like this where accuracy is needed for shapes fitting on top of identical shapes.    The link below contains the files for both cards which are cut from cardstock.
