guest contributor: cute, clever Valentine cards

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

To have creative friends is a gift. I'm always excited to see what comes in the mail or what is dropped off by these amazing people, and I'm encouraged by their love and thoughtful gifts. We welcome back Michelle from The Whole Enchelleada and look forward to what this creative spirit will be sharing with us as she settles into her new home! Today, she shares her favorite card project - with a little help from Pinterest - and as a recipient of her unique pieces, I admit that I get a little star-struck when one of these special cards arrives in the mail.

My gateway into the world of crafts was card making at a young age. Through the years, the love for pretty paper and cute, clever cards has only grown (some might argue into a full-fledged obsession). In part, I’d like to thank Pinterest for enabling my habit with so many great ideas. I continually pin my favorites on my cute and clever card ideas board.

While I love the giving and receiving of holiday cards in December, my favorite holiday to make and send cards is Valentine’s Day! Today I’m excited to share with you the Valentine cards I made with free printables from Pinterest!

As a base for the cards, I purchased three packs of Valentine cards at Michael’s. Deal alert: these are currently on sale for $1 per pack!!!! I then rounded up my favorite crafting tools and accessories and got to crafting.

Here’s what I came up with!

Lovely little tip: you can have your Valentine cards post marked by the Sweetheart City of Loveland, Colorado! Find out more information here.

Until next time….keep it crafty, friends!
