 With little time to spare before Valentine's Day, Diane Williams will show us a great card structure to make for our special Valentines. This fun card was inspired by Carol Duvall and features a window that changes when the card is opened. The size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (A2) and can feature anything you like in the changing window as long as it is flat. Here are some examples provided by Diane.
