Heart String Art {on a card!}

Hi freinds! I love Valentine’s day, especially making Valentine cards. This card design uses the hot trend of string art and the classic look of baker’s twine.


I kinda messed my first try up (you can see that in the video) so I decided to make a template for the stitching holes. I recommend this whenever you are going to try a different shape, you can use a ruler and pen to work out how the string will go and save time and as a bonus you can keep the template to use again! Feel free to use this one if making a heart!


Watch the video for full instruction!

White and red cardstock
Bakers Twine
Washi Tape
Paper Piercer (needle tool or thumbtack)
Foam Tape
Rubber Stamps: Balloons animal maker and Sentiment (Stampin Up!)
Ink pads in pink and red (Stampin Up!)

1. Poke holes in cardstock using the template. Stamp a sentiment on the cardstock if desired.
2. Thread a needle with twine and stitch through holes in the order indicated on the template.
3. Attach stitched panel to mat and card.
4. Decorate inside of card if desired.

Have you tried the old-fashioned string art where you hammer nails in wood and wrap the string? That is so popular right now and I’ve seen some really fun creations! I hope you give this trendy look a try on your next card. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Wonderful! I love learning new ways to hand-stitch on cards. Thank you!


  2. When I saw the title, my first thought was meh. I’ve never been fond of string art. This, however is really cute. The red and white bakers twine is the perfect touch.


  3. What a great card. I love it.


  4. I have always been facinated with string art. My inlaws had a string art picture on there living room wall back in the early seventies. It was a boat. Some day I am going to try to do that. I have made a few cards with string art but that was about 12 years ago. Very pretty card.


  5. I love the card, but somehow I can’t find the like button. I give you a two thumbs up. Think I’ll try it for some special Valentine’s


    • I’ve wanted to do a string-art heart but didn’t know where to begin. Thanks for the template guideline; this will be a great help.


  6. Oh my gosh, I remember doing string art. I once did an entire galaxy using velvet and string art for the planets and stars. That was so much fun. Great reminder, Lindsay.


  7. Beautiful card as always Lindsay!


  8. Love this card and want to make it for Valentine’s Day. I can’t seem to be able to find the templet to print out.


  9. luv it!🙂
