One of the details I’m most proud of is this beaded heart shape, which I used as a three-dimensional photo frame around one of my pictures. Love this idea! The beaded heart design also makes a fantastic applique if you’d like to dress up a purse or hat.

Card Making Ideas With Heart Designs

Free Cardmaking Ideas: Heart Cards Made Using a Free Card Sketch

So maybe you’d like to make a few cards, but you need a bit of inspiration. Perhaps this free card sketch is just what you need to kickstart some ideas. I used the sketch to create the cards you see pictured (and many others that aren’t pictured.) This is my favorite go-to layout for card making. I use it over, and over, and over again.

The focal point of the card sketch is a heart design, but the truth is, you can put any interesting motif in that spot — a flower, star, tree, or butterfly would work equally well.
