Valentine's Day Cards

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
 I didn't give any cards this year but I made three for other people.
 This one my brother gave to his girlfriend. I cut out a heart from a piece of cardboard  and covered it in red and pink painted deli paper. 

 I found a heart stamp and very lightly used it on this card so the images aren't very solid. The red heart is cut from a piece of red card stock and covered in glossy accents. I also used some white embroidery floss instead of maybe a ribbon because this card was from my mother to my father so I didn't want to make it too girly even though its already covered in hearts.

 I used a whole bunch of buttons on this card for my father to my mother. It took a really long time to figure out the placement but I think it turned out really cute. For the little banner at the bottom I used one piece of foam adhesive in the middle and then glued it flat on the ends to make it look wavy.
