Heart Of Gold Valentine Trading Cards

by Nadine Carlier

When I was a kid, trading Valentine Day cards at school was one of my favorite things to do, besides eating the candy of course. The one thing I wish I would have done as a kid was made my own cards instead of buying them and hoping no one else bought the same ones. So each year my daughter and I make her cards. They are so easy and fun to create together.

In my video below I share exactly how I created these cute little cards.

Here is the diagram of how I cut sixteen 2½” x 3½” ATC sizes from a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock.
