Valentine Cards

Now that Valentine's Day is well behind us, I can actually post some of my cards that I recently made.

The first one is a stitched card following an Erica Fortgens pattern.  I added a few clear beads on the larger hearts and ribbon for embellishment. 

Then I made a double fold pocket card to hold a small card and tag. 

I've been experimenting with stamping and distressing.  The "be mine" and the tag are my very first results.  I'm sure my technique will improve over time.

As this card was for my dear husband, I embellished the envelope using ribbon and some letter stickers that I received in my Christmas stocking.


  1. The Valentines are beautiful! I especially like the stitched one. Okay... how long did it take you to complete that??!! I'm jealous.. you're sooo talented!

  2. Beautiful Valentine's Day cards! I love the pretty ribbon on the first one.
