As I've mentioned many times, I participate in the Cards for Soldiers group on the Cricut messageboard. Here is a sample of the Valentine cards I am sending. Remember that our cards are for the soldiers to select to send back home to their loved ones. We are asked not to add much dimension, glitter, or bling. The glitter can penetrate uniforms making the individual visible to night vision apparatus. The dimension and/or bling can cause mailing difficulties. For these reasons (and because it's my personal style), I have kept the cards quite simple. If you do see some shine, it's glossy accents, stickles, or heat embossed powder, which are OK to use.
