Valentine’s Day Counterfeit-Kit Card

I used my January Counterfeit Kit to make this Valentine’s Card for my husband:
The heart has zig-zag stitching around the edges, so that it makes a pocket behind – the ‘Sweetheart’ tab pulls out to reveal a heart-shaped note card.
I took the opportunity to use up lots of pink sparkly adhesive dots, before they get too old and lose their stickiness:
Here’s the pull-out tag, with a list of some of the reasons I love my husband. I used some Simple Stories Sn@p ‘Just the Basics’ 6×8 paper to make the tag – I doodled a scalloped border around the edge, and coloured it in with gold pen:
I hope it will make him happy on Valentines day. We don’t usually do much other than exchange a card, and maybe have a peaceful dinner to ourselves after the kids are in bed. But I still like it as an excuse to be a little more romantic for a day! Do you celebrate Valentines?
  • Such a fun shape and a great design!
