A Valentine's Card for You

Yum
I made you a Valentine card.  


I don't think there are sweeter words to be spoken on Valentine's Day!  My husband once made me a Valentine card and I responded very poorly, never to receive a handmade card ever again.  Don't make my mistake, if you are presented with a handmade card!

This card had a little help from an app called Waterlogue and my daughter, although she doesn't know it yet.  I was checking out her Instagram feed and saw this picture of a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I snapped a quick picture of it with my phone, downloaded and cropped it with my picture app, then uploaded it to Waterlogue, which made a watercolor painting of it.  To get your printable copy of the card go to Valentine Card.  It will look like what you see below.


With a little tech magic from a friend, we turned it into this lovely card, which, you can have for free. If you choose to use it, you will need to get a 4" by 6" envelope to put it in.  It is so simple to make.

Print it off.  1. Fold it like a hamburger bun (teacher talk for a fold that is wider than it is longer) and then fold again, with the "I love you" in the inside.  Sign it, address the outside, then put the card on the inside.  Wa-La! you are done!


There you go!

  1. Awww.... arent homemade items the best? Really. Such thought and love in the DIY process. And as much as I love some fun bling (wink)... I also truly value those handmade and creative gifts.

  4. Aww, it's beautiful! I love the watercolor look. If my printer weren't leaving streaks down the whole page when it printed anything, I'd totally print this!

  5. I love this homemade card! That's the best kind of card, in my opinion, because you can make it more personal to the person you are giving it to than you can with something from the store.

  20. I love this so much. My family always exchanges cards and it can be so hard to find good ones. I don't know why card companies assume families don't tell each other they care until V-day. Homemade cards are the best and this is so much fun.

  25. I prefer handmade cards over store-bought ones ANY day. Even if they are just scribbled on a piece of paper. Those are the ones I keep.

  26. I love getting cards and letters from my husband. One of my love languages is words of affirmation and a little note can really make my day!

  27. What a really cool idea! As a photographer, I could see myself using this for sure. I will be telling all my clients about this. Great idea for anniversarys too!
