Thinking About Valentine's Day

I've been creating Valentine's Day cards at work, so I thought I'd start sharing them little by little. These are the first Valentine cards I've ever made. Some I like better than others, but I'll post all of them and let you decide which ones you like. I thought I'd start off with the one I made yesterday. I think it's my favorite so far.

Valentine Card With Marks Paper

I used one of the Large Valentine Original Dies from Sizzix called Frame, Lace Heart. This is a pretty versatile die and I think you could get alot of use out of it year round. It might not be a bad die to add to your die collection if you use a Sizzix Machine. I might have to think of getting one myself. I think it would make a fun way to frame pictures on a scrapbook layout.

Here's a side view so you can see how the middle heart is popped up to give the card some dimension.
