Valentines Day Card

Valentines Day CardThis valentine’s card has been designed using a scrapbook paper kit. The advantage of using a scrapbook kit is that the papers will already be chosen for you and will be colour coordinated.

The various colours and themes in a scrapbook or card making kit can be tailored for whatever type of handmade cards you are creating.

In this instance the scrapbook paper is perfect for a valentine’s card and is such beautiful paper that the card needs little or no other embellishments to finish it off.
