Valentines DIY- take 2

I am just finishing up my Valentines going out in the mail.  I hope they make it in the mail in time... I am late as always.  :) One has to go out to Antarctica.. I wonder how long the plane ride is from Oregon to Antarctica.  Here are some awesome Valentines ideas for you and your special party people.

Supplies:
1.  Pen- I used black
2.  Envelopes
3.  Card Stock
4.  Spray Paint
5.  Your hands and brain :)  I know this is going to be hard work!

Nothing says Valentine's more than a heart, right?

Add some stripes.
You can mix up your V-day envelopes.. add a paper airplane.. a little rocket... a litte bear and he is asking if you like his mustache. lol

I spray painted the card stock then put a cute pen illustration on top.  Here are my favorites. 
Awwww I have that warm fuzzy Valentine's Day feeling.   I am apologizing in advance if you are getting this mail a little late.  I blame the post office, they are the ones that are late.
Here to see my previous post on the art of Valentines.
