Crochet Love Heart Card


Having heard the wonderful news that one of my uni friends has just got engaged, I quickly made this card up. It's one of my favourite handmade card designs, and now, with Valentine's Day on the horizon, you can make one too!

You will need:

  • Four small crocheted hearts. I made these from embroidery thread, a 3mm crochet hook and this fail-safe pattern. If you are not a crocheter you can buy crochet heart appliques from here.
  • A blank card and envelope
  • A red pen
  • Alphabet stampers
  • Double-sided sticky-tape



Method

Stick on the hearts using the double-sided sticky-tape in a upside-down arch shape. Draw lines between the hearts to look like bunting. Use the alphabet stampers to create your personalised message.

What have you been making this weekend?

  3. What cute cards. I would probably be naughty and want to peel off the little hearts to sew on something.

    The hearts are really pretty, crochet is something I haven't been able to master.
