Classic cards have their place, but who isn’t a sucker for shaped cards to mix things up a bit? Plus, add in some miniature, protruding hearts for more excitement.

Craft essentials
Template from
Paper collection, Craft Consortium The Essential Craft Papers, Watercolours
Dies: Xcut Nesting Hearts, Wedding Alphabet & Numbers; First Edition Decorative Love
Mirrored hearts, Tim Holtz Idea-ology
Mirri card, silver

1. Using the template from our website, create a heart-shaped white blank. Cover the front with purple card. Trim a smaller patterned paper heart, then adhere on top. Die cut four hearts from card and patterned paper, layer up, then attach to the front with 3D foam pads. Add a mirrored heart on top.

2. Die cut ‘Valentine’ from silver mirri card. Stick the letters across a 2.5cm wide strip of white card. Mountain fold and valley fold each end, snip a pennant into each end, then attach diagonally across the card front. Die cut small hearts from coloured and silver mirri card. Adhere them to strips of acetate, then secure behind the card front to finish.
