I usually do not make too many Valentine's cards, but for some reason I am really having fun making them this year. Maybe it is all the wonderful colors especially the vibrant reds and soft pinks and maybe it is all of the Valentine ephemera I have stored on my computer which inspires card making. Whatever it is, I have not yet escaped the urge to make more Valentine's cards.
Here are two that I made recently. One uses an image of an old postcard that I really love. I especially love the blues used in this image. I embossed the word "Love" on the tag on the basket. The tag was blank and I thought it needed something. I also used foil wrapping paper to cut out the hearts used on both these cards. I purchased this wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon (which brought the roll down to $3.84 - not bad!).
Have a great week and thanks for visiting my blog!
