Layering Paper Hearts

Hearts bring joy to any homemade card. Made with love, always!

Cardstock hearts and joy sentiment

Try layering different textures of paper hearts to create an 3D feel in your design.

Here is an example that Liz made. She used a heart paper punch and made hearts from different scraps of paper. If you don’t have a punch, simply cut out symmetrical hearts from folding a paper in half and cutting one side of the heart.

Choose some hearts and start creating an arrangement. Play with different colors, textured paper and themes. Once you like your arrangement, use foam adhesives to elevate some of the hearts above others. Foam adhesives give the look a three-dimensional feel. The card looks like it’s bursting with hearts!

A final touch is a adding a sentiment. Liz found a stamp with the greeting “you bring joy” and stamped it on some white cardstock. She cut around the sentiment and glued it on another layer (cardboard thin paper) to make it additionally stand out. Add any other embellishments to your design.

All done!

What would you layer to add a dynamic feel to a card?
