Next we have a superbly elegant card by Sharon Ngoo featuring our new Secret Garden collection. This is actually a thank you card but it is also perfect for the loving sentiment of Valentine's Day. The soft pastel colors and captivating natural designs of Secret Garden make it the perfect collection for Valentine's Day papercrafts! The heartfelt sentiments and sublime beauty of this card make it the perfect gift for your Valentine! You can have so much fun layering the papers, creating pretty borders, adding fussy cut elements and sweet embellishments! Here is what Sharon had to say about it.

"The Secret Garden collection is full of beautiful flowers so it makes for a lovely sweet thank you card.  I was inspired by the many beautiful rectangular panels on the pattern paper and decided to make a 3-panel fold card showcasing all the beautiful designs in the paper." -Sharon Ngoo

Next up is this hypnotically beautiful French Country card by Tara Orr. We love this card for so many reasons. It has a gorgeous, masculine look that is just perfect that special someone in your life. Tara blended the fabulous patterns of French Country to give this card wonderful regal look. The marvelous contrast of black and cream colors is truly outstanding. Plus the Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key at the center is a perfect way of saying, "You hold the key to my heart." With Graphic 45 papers you have so many unique options for creating the perfect Valentine for someone you love!

Thanks for all the great Valintine ideas.

I love the french country card. Just beautiful and the colors are amazing. I can't wait for that collection to get here.

I loved all the Valentine ideas. Alberto's colorful use of "A Place in Time" for the small match box is just too cute for words! The thank you card from Sharon is definitely spectacular. I love the three panel design--quite the showcase for "Secret Garden." Tara's Valentine card using the black and cream from "French Country" provided a truly vintage look that is very nice. Thanks for getting me in the mood to make my Valentine Tea invitations! This site is always great for inspiration when I need it!
