Another quick one for today!  This is a super simple and fun Valentine’s Day card I made to show off my newly acquired skill of crocheting hearts.  I have been making a whole bunch of these cute crochet hearts in a ton of different colors.  If you know basic crochet stitches, these hearts are very easy to make and only take a few minutes each.  If you are interested in crocheting your own hearts, Skip to my Lou and Julia Crossland offer two great tutorials, which I used on my hearts.

As for the card, there is no stamping involved.  The sentiment was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  The rest of the card was made with two dies.  Everything but the card base was cut from my paper scraps.  I am trying my hand at the CAS (clean and simple) style with this card.  I hope you enjoy it!  Thanks for looking.

  1. Your crocheted hearts are just gorgeous, as is your color scheme and card overall!! Love those alternating borders.

  2. Wow! This card is awesome! The colors really make it pop. Those crochet hearts are adorable. Love the twine & the "Love". Matting the word with the red really makes it stand out.

  3. I love red and turquoise together - the ric-rac and hearts are also a cute combo. But the crochet hearts steal the show... SO impressed you made those! Great card, Elizabeth - HUGS.

  4. i need that heart border! Such a beautiful card!
