2021 Valentine’s Day Card Samples

Do you remember Valentine's Day as a youngster? I folded a piece of red construction paper in half and cut the shape of the heart. And, then I decorated it and gave it away. Of course, I signed it with the obligatory "Love, Kim." I also remember decorating shoe boxes to collect the little Valentine cards we collected in school.

Valentine's Day is one of the largest card-sending holidays of the year. Are you ready? Today I'm sharing a sampling of...
