Hello! Today I'm sharing a fun Valentine's Day craft. I happen to love conversation hearts more than anyone else in the world, so it was only natural that I should make cards that look like them! I snagged the cut file on Cricut Design Space for 0.99$ and was able to put my growing collection of cardstock to good use.
Aren't they cute? Here is what you need to make your own.Materials
  • Cricut Explore Air™ 2
  • Cricut Tools Basic Set
  • Cricut Cutting Mat Variety pack
  • Cricut deep cut blade (if you plan on using glitter card stock)
  • Glue
  • Scrapbook cardstock
Step 1: Load the Candy Hearts ( cuts into your design space. There are 5 cuts to make, and I played around with the colours in order to get some fun contrasts.
Step 2: As you cycle through the cuts, don’t forget to play around with colours and textures. It’ll add a fun dimension to them, and keep them looking fresh and bold. When in doubt, go for contrast!
Step 3: When it comes to assembling them, you’re using one central colour, and then accenting it with a different coloured drop shadow, and a different coloured face. The wording on each heart will then be a different colour, so remember to glue from the bottom up.
Step 4: Because I sized mine a little bigger than the standard envelope, I made myself some fun complimentary ones using a few simple folds and some glue.Step 5: After the hearts are assembled and they’re ready to go! Write on the back or on the front, and away they go. You can also pack yours with some confetti and glitter for an extra kick.
