A couple of days ago, my friend Brittany (from Walnut Paperie) came over for a little card-making session, just in time for Valentine’s Day. I think certain aspects of the Hallmark holiday are lame (like over-priced dinners and red roses), but I’ll never tire of making pretty notes to give to friends. She came prepared with beautiful card stock, heart cut-outs, glitter in every color imaginable, watercolors (such a fun, unexpected touch), hot pink twine, and sparkly tape. Here are a few of my favorite cards we made, and you can find the templates to make your own here.
P.S. Here’s a tip I learned from a reader: an easy way to remember the difference between stationery (writing paper) and stationary (standing still) is to think of the ‘e’ for envelope!
