Masculine Valentine

Because you don't have to have pink hearts to say I love you!

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Simon Says Monday, Love Is In The Air, Mod Squad, Love Is In The Air, and Dies R Us, Stitching, Real Or Faux.

I used the Simon Says stamp set, Labeled With Love.  I layered Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and Captivating Squares on 2 pieces of card stock.  Designer Paper is by Authentique, Seasons: Autumn, perfect for a manly Valentine, don't you think? 

I die cut a Spellbinders Heart and ran it through my corrugator to manly it all up lol  Added 2 different ribbons, 1 for accent and 1 for a bow.  Sentiment is stamped on an MFT Stitched Traditional Tag die cut.  One lone Enamel Brad for accent.
Thanks again for popping in!


  1. Nothing better than a mastuline valentine card with lots of texture. somehow it seems to "man up" the card. Then you also added "manly" colors, a ruggedly masculine Valentine card.

  2. I sat here for a long time just looking at this card to see all the layers and elements. I LOVE this so much. Very well thought out with great colors and patterns. It's the perfect man card!f So glad you could play along so much this week - and I really mean that...lol. Thanks for all your wonderful entries!!! XO~
