Tutorial on cards

This is what i need to make the small card. I don't need a lot and it's pretty cheap.
Kids glue, Scissors, Puncher, black permanent marker, edge scissors, buttons, brown ink pad. Blank cards. I got the blank cards at Roberts, they have tones of colors and got them 40% off. You can also use a 40% off coupon...
I buy cute paper here and there, when i find the ones i love and it is on sale. Small ruban, same...super cheap.
I first cut the Blank cards in two. It is the medium size to start. 5 1/2 * 4 inches.
Then i cut with edge scissors one contrasting paper. Leaving black edges to be seen. I eye ball everything. Cut a heart. Then i pass the ink pad on all edges. to "antique" everything and make the layers pop.
Then, i glue everything, With the puncher i make holes on both side. Put a ruban, tie it, bow it. On the top of the button i pass the black marker. Write Amour. If you are scared to make a mistake when writing. Write it before gluing the paper.

Here, you got it.
A very cute idea, would be to send a card to family and friends like you would send Christmas cards...
