In spite of the cold, I thought I’d rest my knitting needles and make some cards this week.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it was time to delve into my punch and die stocks and see what I could come up with for some simple motifs. I love this as It means I can really show off the papers in my stock.Heart flower card

I started making some flowers using some small punched hearts as petals.  The red card is lovely to work with and I raided my button box for a little white button to add to the centre.  I think this would work well for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.  I made two of these and am going to offer them for sale at £1.50 each with a sentiment or name of choice to be added to the front.  What do you think?

Pansy heart

I’ve also gone a bit made cutting out hearts from gorgeous papers and have added them as is to card blanks.  They work so well on their own that I just couldn’t add anything else to them.  Again I’m offering them with a sentiment or name of choice, this time at £1 each.

Cupcake heart

I’m sure there will be more added soon.  So keep an eye on my facebook page for more previews!

I love this time of year for making things, it’s so romantic and pretty.  Trawling through all my papers and trying out dies and punches is great fun too.  I’d love to know what you think of the cards and any ideas you might have for others.

And don’t forget to leave a reply on my other Valentine post and you could win one of my knitted hearts!

Happy Crafting
