Playing-Card Valentines

Dressed for the occasion, these cards are great for dealing to friends en masse. Write the greetings on glassine envelopes with a no-smudge marker, or print them according to the following directions.

  1. Using a word-processing program, type 4 messages; size each to fit onto a glassine envelope, and stagger them a few inches apart on the page. Print onto a sheet of 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper.

  2. On the printout, center 1 envelope over each message. Using removable tape, affix the top and bottom edges of each envelope to printout.

  3. Using the manual feed on your printer, insert envelope-taped printout, and reprint. Remove tape. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to make additional envelopes as needed.

  4. Insert 1 playing card into each envelope, and seal with a heart sticker.
