Sahin Designs – Simple and fast Valentine’s cards

Hello everyone! I’m back today to show you how you can create fast and easy cards for any occasion. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to quickly make some handmade cards to give to family and friends. I used the gorgeous Cupid collection by Sahin Designs. I love the colorful papers. You can find not only the pinks and reds you would in a classic Valentine’s collection, but also yellow and blue tones that are so unique and fun.

I used some cut files from The Cut Shoppe, but you can simply use a heart punch or dies to achieve a similar result. Both cards measure 5.25″ x 5.25″.

For my first card, I simply cut a 5″x5″ piece of patterned paper to use as a base for my cut file. I also used a beautiful bright red patterned paper to back the heart, just to give it a different look and make it stand out more. To add extra dimension, I used foam adhesive to stick it down. A few enamel hearts and a sweet banner finished the card.

Here is my second card.

I decided to cut three hearts in different sizes and hand-stitch around them. This is an extra step that you don’t actually have to do, but it sure adds a lot to the card. I then backed the hearts with different pattern papers before gluing the whole top layer to the bottom one. You can really be creative with the embellishment. I wanted to keep it simple, so I just cut out some words you can find in the Cupid collection and silver sequins and black splatters.
