Here are the cards that I made for Valentines day 2014. I used Sharpies (in the picture it looks really "stripy" but in real life they looked fine) or my much loved Polychromos. I added accents using glitter and Liquid Pearls.
This is the card I made for my husband using a tutorial from The Gentleman Crafter, an absolutely amazing crafter. I used leather cord for the laces that I had bought at the Kaltenburg medieval festival. It Torsten a few moments to figure out the inside (hint: turn it to the side).
