The good thing was, we had a late start so I had a chance to photograph the Valentine card I've made for John while he was out of the house!
The other blog challenge I want to keep up with this year is the Cards For Men challenge. This is challenge no. 3 and they want to see Valentine, Anniversary cards etc, so here is my entry:
So many cards on the internet are pink, aren't they? But as most cards are made by women to give to the important man in their lives, I just wondered if there ought to be more of a focus on masculine cards. I've seen a few cards like this though, and love this kind of design and just had to have a go.
The base is kraft card, followed by very vanilla, which I distressed with Tim Holtz old paper ink and went round the edges with some soft suede ink, before stamping the various images on it. What made me laugh was that I've put some linen thread across it, before I realised when the card was done, that you can't even see it any more! Oops!
Here is a view of the inside:
The Cardstock Kraft card base, Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Night of Navy
The Stamps: French Foliage, Clearly For You, (Post mark stamp from Inkylicious)
The Inks: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Chocolate Chip
The Tools: Nellie Snellen heart die
Thanks for looking in today, leave a comment and let me know what you think, and I hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow, whatever you're doing.
