Here's a quick card for you to make for Valentine's Day. Really it can be for any occasion given the design that you choose. It uses 3 sheets of scrapbook paper (one vellum, one dark color, and one light color), stacked and tied together with a ribbon.
Making them is super easy. Using a paper trimmer makes it all the more easier. Stack all the papers, choose the height of the card you want, and trim the stack. Fold the stack.
Using an hobby knife, make 2 small slits through all 3 sheets, where the ribbon would go. As long as each slit is equidistant away from the top or bottom. Slip the ribbon in the slits so both ends of the ribbon are on the outside (vellum side) of the card, and tie a bow. Trim the excess ribbon and that's it.
You can put whatever you want on the inside of the card, or even just find a nice quotation that you like.
Here's the quote I wrote in this card:
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heartI got this idea from the Michael's Book of Arts and Crafts.
