Valentine’s Day Card Project

Every Valentine’s Day I make some kind of card for Dave. (If you read his blog you know he makes me a Christmas ornament every year.) The first Valentine’s Day we were together I made him the matchbook card below on the right back.  Not really fancy – just the first of the homemade Valentine (and other) cards he’d receive from me.

Valentine CD and other "cards"

The next year he received this cd of all of my favorite love songs.  Some of the songs on this cd include “You Are The Love of My Life” by Jim Brickman, “Forever and Ever” by Randy Travis, “Till There Was You” by Rod Stewart, ” Your Love Is King” by Sade, and “Someone Like You” by Van Morrison.

The 5 Reasons card was from a digital kit I adjusted to my needs. Then last year, I decided to spend a little more time and made him a “I (heart) you because” tin. I covered an Altoid tin and the wood heart with paper I created in Photoshop Elements. Inside the tin are cards printed with the same paper with the actual reasons, attached by a heart brad.

I Heart You Because Tin

What do I do this year? I’ve been working on some ideas, but nothing jumps right out at me. However, I still have time. I’ll let you know what I come up with. I’d love to hear your past Valentine’s Day projects!
