From the Heart Week - Day 1

We have a seven very special days planned her on the Noel Mignon blog to celebrate Valentines Day!
I love Valentines so I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone creates!

This is Lisa and I'm up first with a special Valentines Day card I made for my husband. We got engaged on Valentines Day so I always love celebrating this day!

I used the Charm School kit to make this cute pocket card. 

To make the pockets (dang, I should have taken pictures while I was making this...sorry) I cut a piece of cardstock to 5.5" x 12" and folded it twice, once at 4" and again at 8". Then I cut out diagonal portions to make the pockets. Here's a visual that might explain it better! 

I decorated the whole card before I glued/stitched it together around the outside edges.

I will write some messages on the tags before I give him the card. I wanted to keep those private so I left them off for now ;)

I hope you enjoy our fun week from the heart!!
