This Valentine can be yours – and here’s how!
Simply click on this link to download the artwork, which is set up to print
two up on 8.5 x 11 card stock. Cut your sheet right down the middle and you’ll
have two cards which fit perfectly into A-9 envelope (8.75 x 5.75).
I used Paper Source card stock and the matching envelope. You can line your
envelope with pre-cut liners available at paper-source.com. I made my own
liner with a template purchased from a local Paper Source store.
Just trace and cut! This way you have unlimited options for liner paper.
This custom Valentine was designed by Kathleen Cooper at

Accepting love is not a surrender–for it holds no threat and does not intend for us to abandon anything–it’s simply a chance to embrace a beautiful gift with gratitude. This offering does not demand that we turn our backs on our beliefs or dreams, it simply invites us to share with another and in doing so, view ourselves through the beautiful reflection of another’s heart.
It’s that ecstatic moment of being touched by something intangible.
We never lower ourselves to love, but rather rise up to meet it.
