Valentines -- the start

I have all kinds of heart stamps, but I haven't made Valentines for a few years.  It sneaks up on me, I guess.  Our two sons live some distance away, so mailing in time becomes an issue.  This year, I'm ready...just hope the one to New York gets there in a week.  😉  I stalk Pinterest for ideas; I just can't think of pretty card designs (as my blog friend Leslie does! She is also the best coloring artist I've found in my corner of the card-making world!).

These two cards are CASE creations from Pinterest.  I added the little silver heart and silver thread on my own; I also covered the single print heart with Glossy Accents.  I'll put Visa gift cards inside; it makes more sense than putting together a box of something they don't need.  💕

Your Valentine's Cards are so beautiful and creative, Evelyn. I think you made both cards your own. Your boys will love their cards. TFS my friend. Hugs..

Aww, shucks, Evelyn! Thank you for your kind words! I hardly ever get more than one or two Valentines made, but this year I tried harder. So soon after Christmas I just can't seem to get into it. Pinterest is a wealth of ideas, and thank goodness for it because it helped you create two absolutely beautiful cards. One can CASE, but it still has to be finely crafted in order to look good. These are just wonderful! I imagine they're perfect for your sons, and the Visa gift cards are a great idea.
