Hello and welcome! Today I will be making a simple and sweet little Valentine's Day card featuring the Cricut A Child's Year "Valentines" image. It's fun to use colorful, patterned papers when the focal point is a silhouette. The trick is to make the card interesting without compromising on the little details that take it over the top. Come on now, this sweet image contains a little girl carrying Valentine hearts, a puppy AND a turtle; what's not to love (?) ! Follow along as I show you how I made this darling little card.
