Valentine’s Day Card Ideas

I have been brainstorming some ideas for non-traditional Valentine’s Day cards.  Of course I want to incorporate photos in them, because… well hello, it’s me after all. 

So here is an idea I have for Cole’s Valentine’s Day cards.  I made it in Photoshop.

cinnamon texture by Kim Klassen

I used Kim Klassen’s texture Cinnamon and then added text boxes with the Rosewood font.  I used the “Place” feature (located under the file tab) for the photo.

Under Reward you will see two options.  I am going to use homemade scratch off paint to cover these.  The envelopes will also have a nickel in them so the recipient can scratch off the square.  This will also be stapled to a bag of candy. 

** After publishing this post I realized I had a typo in my card.  NICE!  At least I hadn't sent it off to the printer yet.  That is what I get for trying to do stuff with the kids actually awake. **

I can’t think of a neater treat for family, either.  I think all of our friends and family will have a huge smile on their faces when they open this one up.
Now to think of an idea for Charley. 

What are you doing for Valentine’s Day cards?
