Valentine’s Day Card: Cascading Hearts

Making Valentine’s Day cards is so fun. The bright pinks, purples, and reds are fun to pair with anything that sparkles. My sparkle of choice was specialty paper such as shimmer paper or pearl paper from Cricut or glitter paper from the Dollar Tree store as well as holographic paper from Lawn Fawn or the Dollar Tree. Don’t forget foil paper. Using a die from Technique Tuesday called, “Cascading Hearts”, I created a window of falling hearts on my Valentine’s Day cards through which you can see the sparkle of the specialty papers I used. Don’t forget, you can make these cards as “Thank You” or “Thinking of You” or “Missing You” cards if you don’t want to make them into Valentine’s Day cards. As always, have fun and use your imagination…’cause, isn’t that the point?!
