Happy Valentine’s Day! Or, friends’ day as it’s known in Finland!

This year, I made my own heart-shaped cards:

They look pretty nice even in their raw form:

I experimented with decorations, but ended with this minimal design: understated pen lines with some color coordination (but not too matcy-matcy). The only problem was the placement of text on the heart shape; it was almost impossible to do neatly. I’ll need to work on that.

I also made custom envelopes by recycling magazine pages:

Being able to make things from scratch really is one of the enduring delights in my life. 🙂
