Love You Greeting Card

I hate to throw away perfectly good, perfectly useful scraps of paper, ribbon remnants, extra embellishments or any other leftover tidbits. It makes me happy to be able to repurpose that last little bit of whatever I have lying around. Hand made cards are a great way for me to use up my scraps and leftovers and the result is something beautiful, something personal, something that can bring happiness to another person. Total win, win situation!

This "Love You" card is perfect for so many occasions...Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day, pretty much any day of the year that you want to let someone know that they are loved! You can create this card by following my step-by-step instructions or by using the picture as inspiration and adding your own flair. Either way, have fun using up your scraps!

Love You Card Instructions

1. Cut white cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".

2. Score the center so card folds to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

3.Cut pink worded paper to 3" x 5 1/4". Ink the edges. Adhere to right side of the white cardstock, leaving an even border along the top, right and bottom edges.

4. Cut plain pink paper to 1" x 5 1/4". Ink the edges. Adhere to left side of the white cardstock, leaving an even border along the top, left and bottom edges.

5. Cut brown strip of paper to 1/2" x 5 1/4". Adhere to left side of the paper to cover the place where the two pink papers meet.

6. Cut green paper to 1 1/2' x 1 3/4". Ink the edges. Punch an oblong heart out of the center. Punch two small holes in the top, right corner. Tie two 2' pieces of white ribbon through the punched holes. Stamp the word "You" in the bottom, right corner. Cut a piece of contrasting pink paper to 1 1/4" square. Mount it behind the punched out heart. Adhere finished green piece over the lower portion of the brown strip.

7. Punch the letters "L", "V" and "E" out of darker pink paper. Use the green punched out heart as the "O". Adhere these letters along the brown strip so they spell out the word "LOVE."
