Design by Tracy Kyle : Tracy used patterned paper printed with sweet sentiments to create a colorful background on this Valentine's Day card. She dotted the "i" of her greeting with a heart for a seasonal touch. Editor's Tip: Tracy added subtle interest to her card by placing a heart of rhinestones behind her card sentiment. For an opposite effect, punch small holes in a shape on your card front, letting the inside of the card show through.
