Be Mine, Valentine
The other Valentine, to my left, is one I created with a textured paper...it reminded me of my eldest son, so I just used him for inspiration. After I cut out a traditional red heart, I used stamps to embellish the rest of the card, along with embossing powder.
It was a lot of fun experimenting and making these. Give it a try! It's something you can do with your crafty kids, too. I made these with my niece and she made Valentine's for all the girls in her class... "the boys just wouldn't appreciate it." Well, I hope my boys appreciate these, but they've grown accustomed to homemade Valentines from mom (including the heart-shaped cookies). I'd love to see some of your creations, so please share them and get busy...Valentine's Day is Sunday!!!!!!
