Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you all are having a fabulous start to your valentine's day. I love the idea of showing all the special people in our lives we love them but I do believe this should not be restricted to just one designated day a year. We have had fun celebrating all weekend and went to a great dinner on Saturday and Chris gave me some beautiful flowers that I've been able to enjoy all weekend (thanks babe!).
Anyways I love making special cards for everyone but it's a special challenge for Chris since I really try to not make it too feminine, I made several candidates but I thought I would share the card that made the final cut.

I used Basic Black, Basic Grey, and Real Red. The background was created with the new letterpress plates and I tried using them with VersaMark instead of regular ink and love how easy it was and turned out perfect. Then a cut a scalloped heart out of grey cardstock with the lots of hearts embosslet , to mat the paisley heart (that was from the Paisley Prints stamp set) that was punched out with the large heart punch. The greeting is from the Be My Valentine stamp set and I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with Paper Snips so it would pop. The final touch was Black satin ribbon and I tied this great bow that looks kind of like a bow tie and used a Clear Crystal Circle brad for the center.
I really think he's going to love it.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Pin It!
