love is all you need

Valentine's Day cards ready to mail

Every year I make Valentine's Day cards for my family.  It's something I like to do for several reasons.  The first, I LOVE my family and I like to take every opportunity I can to let them know.  The second is that I just love making things, especially cards.  There's just something so relaxing about it. 

For this years cards I used plain red card stock and pages from an old book and dictionary.  I used punches to punch hearts out of the book pages and then used those to make a bunch of different designs on the cards.  I also printed a little saying on the inside of the card too.

Here's an example of one of this years cards (I can't share more because then it wouldn't really be a surprise for the family).

Last year I used a card in a different shade of red and used pure white card stock to make the hearts.

Do you make Valentine's cards for family or friends?
