He called this a simplistic design, but I think it's pretty special and intricate. The green panel has die cut openings and is popped up to create depth.
I went with a bit of a non-traditional color scheme and design - pink and green (from the Retro kit by Club Scrap). Paul loves hearts, so I stamped lots of them on pink paper with white ink and trimmed them out. These are all from various Stampin' Up! sets, and some coordinated with punches (I love those!). My message inside reflects more Christmas than the outside - he commented that this could be a Valentine's card!
It's always fun to see what Paul has created for me, and these cards are really special to us. Hope you enjoyed a special day with those you love. We're looking forward to a week off from the usual routine and celebrating the beginning of a happy new year!
In case you missed them, here are some other cards we've exchanged...

I'll be back on January 2nd to show you how I'm now organizing my craft desk!
