I'm not much of a DIY-er. Instant gratification saves me time. It is convenient but I have to pay a bit more. Considering I am trying to save some money, I decided to make my pen pals, friends and family Valentine's cards rather than buy them. I bought a stock of pretty stock cards, 25 cent wooden hearts and cheap acrylic paint
Like Demetri Martin has said, "Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies", and I can't argue with that true statement. I think the cards are a little plain, and not very Valentine's spirited, but I'm drawn to minimalism, so don't expect much from me. Plus, it is well known to my friends and family I am not much of a Valentine's Day kinda person.
I had fun making them and I hope they like them.
