Announcing The Winners!!

Looking for inspiring Valentine card ideas? Check out these winning entries submitted by our readers for our 2012 contest for homemade Valentine cards!

I have to say this: judging that contest was one of the hardest things ever! All the Valentine card ideas submitted were SO gorgeous, it was next to impossible to choose just three! I had to drag three other crafty friends to help me judge! We even went as far as doing a scoring system for all the cards just to be as objective as possible.

Thank you so much to everyone who shared their homemade Valentine cards. That comes from the bottom of my heart.. This was our first contest ever and it is really heartwarming to see that it was such a success! Definitely more of this in the future.. :)

So, again, here's the criteria..

50% Comprehensiveness of Tutorial
25% Creativity
25% Quality of Photos

Okay. So here we go..

THE WINNERS (Drum roll please..)
