1st Class are RED, 2nd are BLUE….

Yep, it’s THAT time of year again!

Have you all made/written/sent your Valentines? If not, I have this super fast, easy & still very pretty idea for you to try

image

What you’ll need:

image

Card blanks & envelopes (or card, paper trimmer, bone folder etc if you are cutting your own)
Heart stickers
Pencil
Eraser
Sharpies (or other markers – we are an equal opportunities stationery supply using house)
Fineliners

How to:

image

Write your chosen sentiment using one continuous flowing line, starting near the bottom left corner and finishing towards the top right. Make sure you leave enough room to fit your butterfly.

 

image

Attach two heart stickers, side by side, to create ‘wings’. I find that overlapping the points slightly gives the best shape.

image

Start following the pencil line with dots or dashes, using a fine liner.

image

Next, add a sharpie body and fine liner antennae to the butterfly

image

Finished!

image

Repeat with different coloured butterflies and varied sentiments.

image

image

By this point, I realized I could Bee changing it up some more…

image

Then came another meow-vellous twist for a cat lover…

image

And an outer space fan…

image

My daughter started getting in on the action too!

The person receiving this, drives me Batty:

image

With a nom de plume like this, there was only one option…

image

So that is possibly the best bit about this particular card (well, apart from the quickness, the easiness, and the cuteness…) Ok, possibly the next best bit is the fact that you can implement the same idea for all sorts of occasions.

Basically, anything that moves can take the place of the butterfly.

My daughter incorporated the naughty kitten with the ball of wool into a birthday card for a Crazy Cat Lady aunt

I love the cute cat stickers!

Other suggestions:

Someone passed their driving test?
Spell out “you passed” and finish off with a car.

Graduation? Start with a hand ‘throwing’ a mortar board up to the opposite corner and adapt the wording accordingly.

Anniversary? Pop the cork from a bottle of bubbly.

Wish someone Bon Voyage with a little jet…

What other ideas can you come up with? I’d love to hear, and if you post pics of your makes, tag me in them so I can oggle them 😜

Thanks for reading!
