But anyway, today is National Send a Card to a Friend Day (I get all the dates from http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/ if you’re interested in using them as drawing prompts too.)
I decided with it being February to make a valentines card… Nawwww.
Cheese Factor. Check
Overall, a very successful card in my opinion.
As for materials, I used my favourite coloured paper for all craft projects. I buy it from Hobbycraft but I’m sure I’ve seen the Dovecraft brand on various craft material websites so it’s an easy find.
The patterned paper is a hard one to tell you where to buy as I got them as a pack, again from Hobbycraft, but last year. So I’m not sure if they still sell this exact pack, but I know they nearly always have a wide range of these packs for various holidays so finding a Valentine themed one should't be too hard.
For my heart shaped cut-outs I used a heart punch (again Hobbycraft) but I also use the Xcut brand punches which I find online. I find the Xcut brand to be easier to hold/punch with for some shapes, but the hobbycraft ones are often on special offer, making them cheaper.
Will you be sending any cards to a friend soon? Or making any handmade crafts for your valentine this year? Let me know in the comments as I love finding crafty inspiration!
