You don't have to use red, black and white for just Valentine's day cards. This color combination works well for all kinds of greeting card ideas.

Of course, it doesn't hurt to use red and white for Valentines. This card was created because I wanted to use up a scrap piece of black and white pattern paper. I took a black piece of cardstock to make the upper half of this hand made card, punched out several hearts for embellishments and added sparkly red ribbon.

For this Valentine's day card, I used the same pattern paper as above but added scallop border layers along the bottom.

To add shimmer, I glued red glitter on a free heart clip art I found on Microsoft's website.
