Valentine’s day is the perfect time to get out your craft kit and make something beautiful so I was super excited to be asked by Cindy from craft blog Skip to My Lou to create a unique Valentine’s project just for you. I’ve already posted the pretty heart garland, cute kids candy huggers (and more!) so this time I wanted to create a little show stopper that would be really fun to make – I think this pop-up card does just that! The pop-up heart balloons and bunting make this a striking card to look at yet it’s really very simple to create at home. You can even make the matching polka dot lined envelope. You will find a link to the printable templates below for the two-sided cards and envelope then you just need to hop on over to Skip to My Lou to follow the tutorial.
Notes about printing your templates: These are ready to download using the button below. It has 5 pages in the PDF. For a project like this where there is a lot of ink, I prefer to use a laser printer. You can find this service at FedEx Office or other office supply stores. You will want to print the two layers of the card on a card stock. The front image is just one sided where the second layer is brown craft on one side and the pink polka dot on the other. The envelope can be printed onto a regular weight printer paper in 11×17 and has the kraft envelope print on side one with the pink dots on the back side. Once these are printed and ready onto two 8.5×11 card stock (card) and one 11×17 text weight (envelope), you are ready to go. Have fun! ~ Lia
