Sew Sweet Valentine Cards

Mixed Media Valentine Cards by iHanna of www.ihanna.nu/tag/valentine

Hi sweet one!

If you are following me via instagram you know it’s #valentinecraftweek in my life right now. Now that I’m diving into it I get the feeling that I am in the right place, doing the right thing. Maybe Valentine is a commercial holiday that makes us single gals feel extra lonely, sure that’s true. But it is also a time for valentine self love and what ever you choose to make it. I am all for giving it a try, even if it’s hard sometimes.

To be happy is my choice. Plus, I adore the visual language of amore; red velvet, bubble gum pink, shiny hearts and messages of love! I am in the right place for love.

I am combining some of my favorite things with this project and making Sweet Valentine Cards!

A combination of favorites

  • using hand painted and bought papers in new combinations
  • working in layers
  • sewing in paper, spending time with my sewing machine
  • the heart as a symbol of so many things

Come along and I’ll show you what I’ve been stitching up around here.

The possibilities are endless with a project like this. I guess that’s why I’m having a hard time stopping.

A few years ago I did something similar, but with fabric, you can find the tutorial here and I’ve also got a whole list of lovely Valentine Ideas if you care to take a look.

Take care and have a wonderful week!
