Love Notes

Appropriate for Valentine's Day or for any day you'd like to leave someone special a note. These little cards were designed by me and then created by the Art2Heart club of middle and high school students that I help to mentor throughout the year. We're selling them in the boutique and also made 20 some to send to Peru for the people there. They're easy and cute so I thought I would show them to you too.

All you need for these cards is some cream cardstock, old book text paper, a stamp that says "Love", a couple of inkpads, some envelopes, a pencil, and a glue stick. 

Simply stamp your word "Love" on the book text and then tear it out. Next, glue this to a piece of cardstock cut to the size you want. I just cut a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper in half to create two pieces that are 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Then, swipe your ink pad around the edges of the card and do a little doodling around the edge with a pen or pencil. Easy peasy, and so so cute. The handcarved stamp I used is one that I made a while back. If you'd like to make your own stamps check out this tutorial I did last year. 

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! 
I <3 You Lots!!!
