The art of creating a Valentine's Day card for that special someone can prove an elusive talent.

Perhaps that's why about a dozen Greater New Milford-area residents found their way to the New Milford Historical Society for a Valentine-making workshop.

Many styles of Valentine's Day cards were perused by patrons eager to learn just what made the perfect card way back in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Everyone then got out their scissors and supplies and dove into creating a memorable card for someone memorable in his or her life.
