Good morning, dearest readers,
Can you believe I'm back again so soon? Well, don't get used to it! LOL I've been working on today's card for three days now. Hubby has been coming in and out of my craft room. I think he suspects that I'm working on his Valentine's Day card. I've managed to keep it under wraps! I thought I'd share it with you today.
I just love the Edwin with Derby Hat image. He's ideal for masculine cards. I wanted my husband's card to be masculine yet have the Valentine feel. Here are the photos:
No ribbon on this card. I did add some lace because it resembled an old crocheted table cloth. It also matched with the flowers on the title panel. I did add flowers. I had to do something for me! LOL I used Go Kreate dies for the shape of the card. I also used a ton of dies. The vintage bicycle is a Memory Box die. The heart border on the left is Whiff of Joy, I think. I'm not sure on that one. The Viewmaster die is a Magnolia Doohickey Die. I chose to add alphas behind it to be part of the sentiment for the front. I loved that the alpha stickers fit perfectly in the open squares. The heart on the ribbon die is called Precious Hearts by Memory Box. I had some red pearl hearts, so I added them as accents.
Here is the inside of my card:
On the inside left, I have used my humor to create a pun using the Magnolia Mustache Doohickey Die. I also used a label maker for the words. I want it to say, "I mustache(must ask) you a question..." Then, over on the right side you will find the question - "Will you be my Valentine?" I tried to be clever! LOL
I used a Marianne Design Lovebird die on the left. I wanted to keep it simple since it is for a gentleman. The right side features a black doily die. I liked that it had hearts. I also had a smaller set of dies that matched the shape of the card. The heart on the lower left is from Whiff of Joy.
Well, that's the card I made for the love of my life. If you liked it, let me know! Since no one has seen it, I am dying to know what fellow cardmakers think! LOL
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! I'll be back next week with another card to share!
