Hey! Want to post your Valentine card ideas? If you're like me, you make them for your parents, grandparents, friends as well as your guy. So I need some ideas as I like to make them all different.



I made this one for my grandparents. On the card,  I masked a heart shape and stamped over it with a light pink floral rubber stamp. Then I pulled the mask off and outlined it with tacky glue and poured on the glitter.

On the envelope, I stamped one side completely with the same floral mask. Then  I used the negative from the heart mask, and glued it on the envelope, outlined with glue then drizzled on the glitter.

Not sure if this would get through out postal system with the glitter on the outside too. I'm planning to put the envelope on a box of chocolates and wrap it in Kraft paper. That way it will get through for sure.

I know this is a little traditional for crafster, but it's for my grandparents who are in their 90's. I wanted something low-key and recognizable. Especially as Granddad has early stage Alzheimer's and I want to keep things simple for him.

OK.... now let's see everyone's Valentines... traditional, wild, sexy, subtle, cool, cruel (?), fun, romantic....

I made some really adorable cards last year so I don't have pictures for them. But I still have the materials so I guess I could make one again for an example if anyone was interested. What I did was take two playing cards and laid them side by side and hot glued some red and pink plaid sort of fabric to cover them. So you have a small fabric covered card and it folds where the edge of the two cards meet. Then I had some thick about 2 inch white and red ribbon that I glued around the card in various ways. Then I took some foil that had come around some chocolates my mom sent me that was red on one side and silver on the other and I cut out tons of various sized hearts and glued these on the front of the card. Lastly I wrote a little message on a piece of paper that I glued on the inside. I hope that made sense. They were really easy to do and looked awesome.

Did you paste the part that looks like this?
 " img http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/40476card1.jpg  /img "
Only with the brackets around the img tags of course.
I found the links to pictures anyway, I think your cards are really cute. I think it would look better orange like that.
