Non-traditional Handmade Valentine Cards

On Monday I shared some traditional handmade Valentine cards.  I guess you could call the cards I’m sharing today non-traditional handmade Valentine cards. The reason I’m calling them non-traditional handmade Valentine cards is because I didn’t use the colors red and white, which is what we typically think of for Valentines. Here’s the first one of my non-traditional handmade Valentine cards. PROJECT NOTES: I love the heart pattern paper in the FREE Sale-A-Bration Bubbles… Read More »
