Masculine Valentines Card

My brother is a Valentine's baby... So every year I like to make him a masculine valentine's card for his birthday.



The inside will contain his birthday wishes.

The pattern paper is part of the Gossamer collection from Memory Box. The hearts are cut from the Sizzix die cuts original dies. The swirls and flourishes is Hero Arts - Heart Flourish. The lovely pearls are from Recollections - Autumn.

The sentiment is a Memory Box stamp. I stamped the green card stock with a wood finish stamp from Hero Arts and love the effect. It didn't fully stamp but picked up the grain of the card stock.

Products:

  • Hero Arts - Heart Flourish
  • Hero Arts - Wood Finish
  • Memory Box - Gossamer Paper
  • Memory Box - Happy Valentines Day
  • Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Sizzix - Hearts
  • Recollections - Pearls

Have a lovely day!
