Last week I was collecting some inspiration for Valentines day cards, and especially for cards more suitable for friends than lovers. It made me wonder how different all the relationships in life are and I realized there is no reason why hearts should not be send to your friends. So I ended up using huge amount of hearts and could not be happier about my choice.
For the cards I used heart shaped cutter which I bought some years a go when I needed to make four wedding cards in one summer. You can see the style of the Wedding card from my old blog and more detailed pictures of the making process of these lovely hearts. For these cards I ended up using 9 different colors for the hearts, all bright and lovely colors perfect for the theme.
As you can see from here I did not glue the hearts to the cards but I used two sided 3D- stickers which gives this flow effect. I like to use them as they give much more structure even to the most simple elements, like these hears.
I used stamps for the cover text and wrote in Finnish “Ystävälle” which means “To a friend”. I wanted to keep it simple but I felt the car would have been too bold without any text. And for the inside I ended up writing something with black pen, even though I had first planned to stamp the inside text also. But you know, sometimes you just feel too lazy to stamp letter by letter long texts so..:)
I hope you will use the opportunity and send someone special a card to remind them how important they are to you. In Finland the cards must be send latest 10th of February if you want the card to arrive before V- day. Have a lovely new week,
