Step 1: What You'll Need

2 pieces of cardstock paper ( I used a creme and a pink paper )

Fancy cut scissors

An adhesive roller or tape

Ultra fine point Sharpie marker

A pen

Normal scissors

Step 2: The Front

First you should fold the pink paper ( or whatever color paper you are using for the card ) in half.

Take the creme paper and cut out a rectangle with the fancy cut scissors. The height and width should be about 3 1/2" by 6 1/2".

Apply tape or adhesive roller strips to the piece of creme paper. Next press the creme paper onto the front of the pink paper.

Step 3: Fancy Lettering

This step will show how to write fancy lettering on the front of your card. You may want to practice on a piece of scrap paper before writing on the card. The capital letters are fancy the lower case are just regular cursive. Once you have practiced enough you can write on the card.

Step 4: The Message

The next step will be to write the message inside using a pen. You can copy mine or write your own. If you copy mine, the pictures show how to write the capital letters.

Step 5: The Heart

Next we will make a heart for the other side of the card. Get a piece of scrap paper and fold it in half, then draw half a heart and cut it out.

Next grab some of the leftover creme paper and cut a square big enough for the heart to fit.

Trace around the heart with the fine point Sharpie marker. Draw little bubbles around the heart as shown then line the bubbles with dots. Little 'petals' should then be drawn inside the bubbles. When finished drawing the heart apply tape or adhesive roller strips to the back of the heart paper and place on card. Note that this specific heart is not my design, I saw it on YouTube.
