Valentine Swap Cards

My Mom is participating in a Valentine's Day Card Swap, so I made up ten cards for her.  That sounds kind of funny, she is participating in the swap, and I made the cards! 

I wanted to do something quick, easy, and had a "vintagey" feel.  The actual card is made with kraft cardstock.  I adhered some ledger paper (both ivory and pink) to the front.  Using paper punches and Nestabilities, I cut out a bunch of hearts and just attached them to the card.  I added some pearl cotton, buttons and some half pearls to finish them up.

I was able to use a lot of scraps on these cards, including some Christmas paper!

Paper:  October Afternoon, Recollections, We R Memory Keepers, Pebbles
Misc:  Nestabilities, half pearls, paper punches, buttons, pearl cotton
