card making :: heart outline card

IMG_5424bHere is a simple card design that can be put together in minutes using pretty patterned paper, a dab of paint, and Q-tips.  Craft stores usually have shelves full of pretty paper adorned with all sorts of patterns, colors, and textures.  Most of the time they are in a 12″ x 12″ size which is ideal for scrapbooking, but here is a way you can use one sheet to create two different cards.

Many card making tutorials start with cardstock as a base, but that may not be practical for everyone especially if you aren’t planning to invest in a large amount of supplies for this hobby (or if you’re only making a few cards for a special occasion).  Using patterned paper (or any paper sold by the sheet vs. in bulk) is an alternative and you can create some really pretty card bases.
