Handmade Valentine's Day Card Roundup with Occasional Crafting

 
My youngest sister Lindsey is what I would call  paper artist. The cards, banners, scrapbook pages, 3D paper projects, etc. that she creates are so intricate and absolutely beautiful. My other younger sister, Jyl, is an amazing cake artist which I will be blogging about in a future post.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner I thought that it would be the perfect time to share some of Lindsey's amazing Valentine's Day Card Creations. The thing that I LOVE about Lindsey's handmade cards, is how diverse she is in her style and techniques. Believe me, she really think about each card she makes and puts so much time and effort into them. One of the great things about having Lindsey as my sister, is the fact that we get to be spoiled with receiving her beautiful creations in the mail. Not only is Lindsey extremely creative, she is is also a very thoughtful, smart, and all around genuinely kind person. I am blessed to have two amazing sisters in my life.

Lindsey frequently shares all of her wonderful creations on her blog, Occasional Crafting (occassionalcrafting.blogspot.com). Feel free to pin away, but please pin Lindsey's cards from her blog. I hope you will be as inspired as I am by her creations. Oh, and don't forget to give her some love by leaving her a comment!

VALENTINE INSPIRATION OVERLOAD



 I am absolutely IN LOVE with this card. Seriously, in love! Yes, Lindsey cross-stitched the "LOVE" sentiment on the front. Amazing, I know! To me it has such a fun vintage charm, with a modern update.

I love the simplicity of this card, yet if you look closely the X and O's are all made from sequins. Brilliant.

Most of my family and my husbands family live in Virgina, which is too far away from where we live. Boo...Hoo...! My husband and I are both fortunate to have wonderful families that we love dearly. O.K., back to this darling card set. Love the chevron designed card and of course I adore the "Thinkin' of You" card below.
