Pretty Valentine’s Card Using an Unexpected Source



SCAN0571If you get Martha Stewart Living, you probably saw this project.  I just had to try it and I’m happy to report that it’s easy and it works!

I used stamp pads and paper that I had on hand.  Roll up a piece of cardboard to make the rose and cut a wine cork in half to make the leaves.  Easy!

I love how these cards turned out and can’t wait to send them to a few special people for Valentine’s Day.
