Krafty Hearts

Hi Crafter's

It's time for Handmade Monday . Pop over to Wendy's blog at 1st Unique Gifts and have a look and see what other crafters are up to. It's also Valentine's Day ( Just in case you had forgotten ....LOL )

Well I hadn't forgotten but I almost forgot to make my DH a card  (   Shame on me...... :(    )
So last night when he was in his garage I put this together.....
I have cut the  hearts  from corrugated kraft card. The sentiment is computer generated.

Every thing I have to do my card making is at my shop, so don't have a craft room at home any more. All I had at home was a piece of the corrugated card left over from another project I brought home to do, a pair of scissors, some craft glue my DH had been using, a pencil ( there is always one in the bottom of a drawer ), a computer with printer and a pack of card blanks I had forgotten about.

I drew a heart shape on a piece of paper cut it out and used this as a template for my hearts

Now I had two corrugated hearts, I need a background for them so I generated  a red square in photo Shop with a red border around it and printed it off on to a spare card blank. I then cut that out with my scissors.
I then had to think about the sentiment. I played about for a while until I was happy, created the border then printed that off onto another card blank. All I had to do then was layer up the background and the hearts and my card for my DH was finished...... Phew..... I hope he likes it.

Well that's all from me for now. Thank you for visiting. See you again soon.

A handmade card for your DH to treasure, so much better than shop bought

I am sure he will love it. He will know how much love has gone into it. I am also impressed that you managed to create with such limited supplies. Well done

I love that card - I think corrugated card works so well on handmade cards and it isn't used often enough!!

Thanks for popping by and taking part in Handmade Monday!
