Faux Polaroid Valentine Note Cards

m j valentines 2015

I have really struggled to get a few Valentine themed cards made this year.

These two went together really quickly, inspired by extra Polaroid shaped photo frames on my workspace. I didn’t have the right shade of yellow paper, so I colored white paper with Copic Y18, then die cut the speech bubble.

Have a great weekend!
