DIY 3D Valentine Photo Card

Three-year-old Sophie attends a Mommy's Day Out program twice a week. In preparation for their upcoming Valentine's Day party I decided to make personalized photo cards with a 3D effect.

I took a couple of pictures.

Next, I used Picasa to edit my favorite picture and add text.

Then, I exported it to Walgreens to have 4 x 6 inch prints made. Using the promo code BEMINE40, I purchased 20 prints for $2.46 (including tax).

Next, I used a little piece of double-sided tape to attach the Snicker's candy on the photo for the 3D effect and taped the photo onto cardstock for stability. Finally, I punched a hole in the top right corner and added a little ribbon detail.

This is my version of the valentine card I saw at craftomaniac.
