using scrapbooking paper and heart stamp

A Valentines Card I make using scrapbooking paper, a heart stamp and a Happy Valentines Day message stamp. This is a pocket tag card design that can be adapted for other kind of handmade cards. Below is a list of other handmade greeting cards I made using this cardmaking design.

I used a bright sharp pink color theme with roses and hearts here so it's a handmade happy valentines day card suitable to send to mom, a woman friend or a young niece.
