Another Valentine I could not resist was this free offering from Stacie Bloomfield of Gingiber. I love, love, love her animal prints and pillow renderings...especially their stitchy texture fur. As a fan, I feel lucky that these artists are so generous with their work.
A great way to find cards like these (as well as paper dolls, fold toys, gift tags and more) is to search Instagram, Pinterest, etc. with the word "printable." And it should go without saying but please obey their rules, these are both clearly marked for personal use only.
But I didn't have any envelopes the right size so I made one up...and then I thought, maybe somebody else would like to do this too. So I'm going to call this a tutorial although really it's just a quick tip.
To make a simple envelope:
Take a full-sized sheet of paper fold in the sides to the with of your card. Then fold up the bottom third and fold down the top (making sure there is room for your card inside.) I used my hera marker and ruler to score the paper first so that my folds would lie nice and flat.
For finishing, you could use a sticker but to get real fancy you can make a string tie closure.
On one of the buttons, either leave a long tail of the thread you used to sew them on with or tie on a short piece of pretty string.
To close, just make a figure 8 (for infinite love!) over the two buttons and you're all done!
That's it. You're done! Let me know if you find this idea useful and of course,
have a Happy Valentine's Day!
