And now an arrow Valentine’s Day card to go with the candy bar from last week!
For the background of the card I used 8.5″ by 5.5″ white card stock folded in half. I attached doilies to the fronts of the cards. I found these beautiful pink and gold doilies last year at Michael’s, and I noticed that they have lots of doilies in the stores this year too. It seems like doilies are cool again – just a few years ago it was nearly impossible to find even plain ones at any store, but now there are really pretty varieties of colors, designs, and shapes all over the place. I plan to stock up so that I’ll have plenty on hand if doilies become hard to find again in the future! I cut strips of shiny gold poster board for the shafts of the arrows. I attached the gold strips to the centers of the doilies with pop up dots. I punched hearts out of red card stock for the ends of the arrows and attached them with pop up dots as well. I stamped tiny Valentine’s Day tags with a stamp and punch from Stampin’ Up and tied them to the gold pieces with red and white baker’s twine. That’s all – pretty quick and easy.
I realize the clock is ticking, but you might even have time to make these and get them in the mail in time for Valentine’s Day. At the very least you’ll be ready WAY in advance for Valentine’s Day 2018!
