Handmade Valentines

I love Valentines Day not as a mushy romantic holiday but as a fun holiday where we have a family dinner and celebrate my little girl's birthday. We have such a fun time celebrating Valentines Day. The kids and I spend lots of time making and sending Valentines. The Valentines I have to share with you today were created with the Valentina collection from Bella Blvd. This collection has a great traditional color palette with whimsical graphics, flamingos, donuts, and glasses. It's SO much FUN!
Pink and white bakers twine and a pink button are the perfect addition to the border of this card. This is a technique I use often on my cards.
This card features a hand cut pink heart and some hand stitching with bright pink embroidery thread.
The last card in this set features a 3x4 journaling card that I trimmed down to fit on the front of the card. I adhered the 3x4 card with foam dimensional adhesive over crochet thread that I wrapped around the card base.
Have a great Monday! Do you create your own handmade Valentines? I'd love to see what you create! Leave a link in the comments.
