  1. Fold the card

    Use a pink piece of construction paper or card stock that is 11 inches by 5 1/2 inches. Fold the paper in half.

  2. Attach the rectangles

    Draw two rectangles that are 2 inches by 4 1/2 inches on cream-colored paper. Cut out the rectangles. Lay them lengthwise on the front of the card so that the rectangles make the shape of an equal sign. Attach them to the paper using the double-sided tape.

  3. Cut out the hearts

    From red, pink and white paper, cut out six small hearts. The hearts need to fit within the rectangles. Place three hearts side by side on each rectangle.

  4. Sew on the hearts

    Thread the twine through the embroidery needle. Sew a stitch vertically through the center of the first heart, and knot the ends. Make sure the knots on the loose ends of the twine are on the inside of the card. Repeat the process for each of the hearts.
