After all, endless doors of all colors, styles and eras were just waiting for us to turn into a kitchy-catchy Valentine Card!

It was also a super fun way to use up some of those pretty crafting papers and supplies that are promising to take over our dining room!

After establishing our theme, we next wrote up our list of recipients. We take this ever so seriously!

So, pull up a chair and take a look at some of our fun creations! If you've got some music that goes with the holiday and gets the creative juices flowing, put it on.

DIY Valentine's Day Cards - I A-door-e You-

A Fun Craft for Any Age!

Being that these are hand-made works of art, we tailor them to the recipient. For example, one of our family members is a fan of green, so their card would definitely feature a spring-y hue.

Another friend loves purple, so hers would focus on that color! You get the idea!

Step One: Choose your heavy paper or cardstock and decide if you want it to be landscape (open at the bottom) or portrait (open like a book).

Step Two: Decide on the 'look' you're going for. Whether it's a modern door, grand entryway like a castle or whimsical with plenty of fun pops of color, there are endless options to get creative!!

Do a little research if you you don't have a clear idea when you start!

Initially, when we decided to go with the door theme, it took a little time to find just the right amount of inspiration for our perfect little doors!

Bookmarking travel blog sites on Instagram and creating folders with pretty door pictures made it both easy and fun to find different ideas around every corner of the internet!

All of your magnificent Valentine's Day cards just--MADE ME SMILE! The colors and ideas are so extremely captivating. "Hallmark" doesn't have anything on you two. Maybe you should approach them with your spectacular cards. It warms my heart to see such beautiful creativity. Keep up the good work and thanks for brightening the winter doldrums & shadows of our friendly "ground hog."
