Ok so these are really considered Valentines Day Cards but I just couldn’t title it Valentines Day Cards so soon after the New Year. I have made these cards for my Londyn Kate store. I thought it would be really cute to give your loved ones a little mini card every day before Valentines Day.
The cards are 3×3 mini cards (oh how I love mini cards, they are so much fun to make!). To make a mini card you need a piece of cardstock that is 6×3 and then you score it at 3 inch mark and fold it in half. Simple, easy and fun to make, you can’t beat that! I then used my wonderful Cricut to cut out the hearts, I have the E2 which comes with the Essentials cartridge that has this pretty heart. I cut the heart at 2.5 inches and I cut the shadow in white and the heart in pink. I adhered them together with some tape and then adhered them to my mini cards.
I made cute little envelopes for the cards and I have video on how to make envelopes for 3×3 cards here. I also made a cute little box for them to go into. For the base of the box you need a piece of cardstock that is 7½ x 7½ that you then score at 2 inches on all sides. You then cut the score lines to where the lines meet on each side and fold them in. The top of the box is made out of piece of cardstock that is 5 5/8 x 5 5/8 that you score at one inch on all sides and cut the score lines to where the lines meet on each side and fold them in.
I will be posting a video soon on how to make the 3×3 box this week!
Are any of you already thinking about Valentines Day? Oh, I can’t believe I typed that out!!!
