add simple photo borders for elegant valentine's day cards

Now that the holiday festivities are over, it's time to start thinking about the next big holiday that's right around the corner: Valentine's Day! Today we have an adorable share from Tricia of SNAP Photography. She writes, "I used the Easy Elegance Collection Borders for my kids Valentine's Cards - it's been snowing a lot this winter and I wanted to use the contrast of the snow with a heart for a more vintage theme.

I love these for their simplicity but also that reminiscent feeling of old Valentine's cards. The Elegance Borders have an Art Deco feel that I think is perfect for the day of love, and with my kids I think it is so sweet." Thank you so much for sharing Tricia! Your $75 gift certificate is on its way! From the shop: Looking to set the scene without stealing the show?

The result is a sharper image.
