DIY Valentines Card
I am obsessed with beautiful string art. You know the kind that takes tons of patience to create and looks oh so amazing. That is exactly what inspired our faux string art heart cards. These simple Valentines Cards are so easy make and turn out beautiful. Perfect for brightening a friends day.
Simple Heart Valentines Day Card
- Card stock
- Permanent Infinity Markers
- Heart Shape
- Straight Edge
- Flat backed Jewels
I cut a cardboard heart template from a cereal box (previously used to protect our table from paint as we made our Symmetry Hearts). Instead of tracing the heart template, we place evenly spaced dots around the perimeter with a black marker.
Important: Make sure that there are an equal number of dots on each half of the heart.
Now all you have to do is connect the dots. Simple!
I glued a coordinating jewel to cover up where all the lines connected. I love the finished card. As you know I have a love of brightly colored Sharpie markers. I have a whole drawer in my office dedicated just to them. Honestly I have tried a number of different permanent markers and I keep returning back to my beloved Sharpies. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the Infinity Markers, and would totally purchase them.
What impressed me:
- I didn’t take photos of all the different paper we tested. However, they preformed wonderfully on white paper, colored paper, heavy and light weight paper. NOTE they do bleed through the back of 90lb. paper or lighter, but so does the competition;)
- The colors are bright, consistent and true. I was particularly happy with the blue!
- The triangular grip design was really comfortable ~ they just felt right.
