A2 Handmade I <3 U CardI like to make mini cards to try out new ideas. To make the mini I <3 U card,  I loaded up my cricut mat with a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Card stock. I cut three 3/4 inch circles from Plantin Schoolbook. Then a pressed line return and cut circle, heart, circle also at 3/4 inch. After that was cut, I used line return and cut three more circles. I then cut the paper down to 3 1/2 x 7 inches and then folded it into a 3 1/2 square card. For the circle background, I distressed a vintage book page with some Tim Holtz® Distress Ink Pads. I cut down the book page to 3 1/4 inch and then glued it to the piece of the same size card stock. I glued a piece of red felt to the back of the craft card stock heart. I then used some pop dots to attacked the book paper background to the back of the card front. I used my hot glue gun to attacked the metal “I” and “U” letters. Then I placed a pink brad in the bottom right corner of the heart. To make the A2 size card, I used similar techniques. I hope you like these cards, and they inspire you to get creative.
