I've done quite a lot of crafting since Christmas, and I got several things done for Valentine's Day. I already shared my LOVE garland, which I sent out for a swap, as well as the Puppy Love tags for the tag book swap.Today I have finished making Valentine cards that I will be sending out to friends and family..In keeping with my theme at Christmas, I didn't go buy anything new, I used what I already had, so some are not traditional Valentine colors.
I also used digital images of fintage cards.
I am happy with how they turned out, but some I think are better than others, of course.I made this one specifically for my aunt who is 85. It's difficult to see, but I put pink glitter dots on the ribbon of her bonnet.I've mentioned before that my dad is a train nut, so I was thrilled to find this vintage image to use on his card!For some reason, this one really appeals to me. I love the embossed green paper, and the background paper has a sheen and some little sparkles that pop out. Probably I love it because of the textures. I'm big on texture.
So that's my Finished For Friday offering this week! I wonder what everyone else at Lit & Laundry has finished. Let's go see!
Do you send Valentines? How do you decide who will receive one? Do you make your own?
