Mini Valentine's Day Cards

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with some quick and easy mini Valentine's Day cards. 
They are perfect for a small gift, a box of chocolate or even a lunch note for that special someone.


So, let's get started. 

I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock
 and colored the images with Arteza Real Brush Markers. 
*Note: Please use whatever coloring medium you have or feel comfortable with.
I then fussy cut the images. Set them aside.


Next, I cut 7 pieces of cardstock measuring 3"x6" - 
I then, score on the long side at 3" to create mini 3"x3" cards. 

Then, I die cut 7 hearts from a variety of pattern paper. 
*Note: this is a good way to use up those scraps.


Now, that we have everything cut and ready - let's assemble the cards. 
I start by stamping a sentiment in the right-hand corner of card front. 
Next, I adhere the image onto the die cut heart and pop
up the heart using foam adhesive to the center of the card front. 
I repeat this for all the cards.
