Greeting Card of the Month-January 2009
Win any heart by making this simple folded greeting card with easy to find supplies and bits of scrapbook paper. If you can not find the vintage Valentine print, substitute stickers or photocopies of old-time Valentines, or anything you like.
For one card you will need
1 sheet off-white scrapbook cardstock
1 sheet red scrapbook paper
2 red foil heart-shaped doilies
1 sheet vintage Valentine scrapbook paper
white sequin trim
1/4-inch sheer off-white ribbon

Fold the off-white scrapbook cardstock in half on the diagonal, making sure the red foil heart will fit on the folded part. Adjust fold, if necessary.

With the cardstock folded, trim around foil heart using paper crafting scissors leaving a 1/2-inch margin, as shown.
