Valentine's Card

Ruth-Anne Ford

This little Valentine's Day card is a gift to yourself and the person who receives it. Taking the time to create this card was the best part of my day. Meditating on decisions like, 'should I do yellow or snake skin paper next?' is a sweet respite for my busy brain. The design is a simple creative process within a controlled format. I hope you enjoy creating this also! Show me if you do!
Supplies Needed:
Paper - I used a combination of construction paper, a Costco magazine and an old calendar. Be creative with what you use.
Glue stick
Scissors + Ruler - A paper cutter is great also!

1. Create the base of your card. I wanted a smallish rectangle card, so this is about 3" x 4" folded.
2. Cut a your first rectangle. I used a paper cutter, but if you don't have one just use a ruler to create a straight line and make your cut. Adhere with glue.

3. Keep cutting glueing rectangles in progressively smaller sizes!

4. I finished my Valentine with a yellow base and a kooky heart. I love symmetry so cutting a kooky heart is out of my comfort zone - but I like it. Love is kooky and not perfect.
