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
Paper Piercer (needle tool or thumbtack)
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!
