Today I'm sharing a Valentine card. I've challenged myself to go the non-traditional route with Valentine cards this year. To me that means not the usual colors of red and pink and not the usual romantic, victorian feel that I think of when I think of this holiday.
This is a really simple card using black and white designer paper. The hearts are cut on the Cricut using George and Basic Shapes and then embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. I finished it off with a scrap ribbon from my stash and a couple of white paper flowers I found tucked away in a jar of flowers.
I'm on the look out for some examples of non-traditional Valentines. If you know of any on the web or if you have some to share yourself, please do share!
Before I go, I'd like to thank those of you who emailed me with suggestions to improve my photography. I got lots of great advice and hopefully it will improve the look of my blog in the very near future. I dug out the manual for my camera and I'm learning to use it with the manual settings. It may take me a while to accomplish better results, but I'm trying! Thanks!
