Level Up valentine

This is a really simple valentine.  The fact that the hearts are painted with stargazers and glued on (level up technique) gives it that crafty goodness that you don't find in a store-bought card.  You don't have to do a lot to give a card that home-made feel.
I also bypassed the whole red and pink thing - it gets old after a while.  The image is from CS Designs.
