How To // I ♥ U 3D Card

I always think handmade cards are the best - but Valentine's Day can be a tricky one. I have a simple Valentines Day Card idea which is super cute & "cool" (for those that are in new relations & don't want to seem too clingy/loved up)! 

To make your card you all need:
  • White Card
  • Coloured/Patterned Card 
  • Craft knife (with a cutting matt)
  • Glue
  • Pencil & Rubber

I obviously stumbled across the idea on Pinterest & after much searching, I managed to find the perfect printable template. Once you have printed your template & cut it out....

  1. Use your pencil to carefully draw around your template on to the white card, remembering to mark which lines to fold & which ones to cut. 
  2. Using your craft knife (& cutting matt) cut along the correct lines. 
  3. Gently fold along the correct lines to create a 3D/Pop-up effect.
  4. Very carefully rub out any pencil lines that may be showing, taking care not to rip the card.
  5.  Once you are happy with the way it looks, glue the back of the white card & carefully stick it to the patterned card (it is easier to do this if you fold both cards in half first & stick down one half at a time)
....and you're done! 

I'm sure you'll agree it is really quite simple & looks really cute! If you do have a go yourself, please share with me on Twitter or Facebook.
