The endless card design is
wonderful as a Valentine, or any other special occasion!
This is a great YouTube tutorial

EDITED to add: My husband says "This is the BEST card ever!", now you have to understand he is an aerospace engineer and likes clean simple aerodynamic lines along with the kinematic design and motion of the card.
