VALENTINE'S DAY CARDS

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I can't wait!  I know it's to celebrate your significant others, but I like it because I'm partial to pink, glitter, and chocolate.  

I know some people don't care for it because it reminds them that they are single, but when's the last time you sent your best friend a card to tell them that you love them? Or your mom?  Or that cute guy you see in the coffee shop daily?

Throw a crafting party, drink some wine, make some cards, and revel in your fabulousness.

Gather some crafting things for your cards. You'll be surprised at how much you've probably accumulated over the years.  Printed scrap paper (I found this printed pack in the $2 bins at Michael's, same goes for the sticky rhinestone and pearls and the ribbon variety pack!), blank cards and envelopes, ribbon, stickers hole punches and anything else adorable and obnoxious.

Follow my embossing instructions from my previous post and integrate it into your customized cards.  

The secret to rubber cement is to glue both surfaces your sticking together!

Glue away!  Be creative and combine different shapes and colors.  See some examples below.

Don't forget to seal it with something cute and use an interesting pen on the front.  Anyone would be thrilled to receive any of these guys.
