A Wood-Striped Valentine

Wood Striped Valentine

One of the very best occasions to create a handmade card is Valentine’s Day.  Not only does it show you cared enough to spend the time making something, but it can be customized and personalized, and it doesn’t need to take all day.

This card was created using plain old markers , a pencil and a ruler. Draw lines of the same color on top of itself to create the look of wood grain. Then use a pen or thin marker to pattern your message on the front.

Materials: Cardstock, pencil, any markers, pen or thin-tipped marker, ruler/t-square, white gel pen (optional to write over darker colors)
