Don’t ask the question …

2009-bud-valentine-copy… if you don’t want to hear the answer!  I asked DH if he thought this card was too girly.  He wrinkled his nose.  “I think so.”  Naturally, it’s my Valentine to him, which I told him, and we laughed.  Frankly, I thought it looked rather sophisticated and maybe a little sexy.  Oh well, it’s finished, it’s got a gushy message inside, and there you have it!

I’m on a long-card kick, which is my February card challenge for my campers.  (Do you have a camp scheduled on your calendar?  Check here for what’s coming up.)

This card simply uses layered punched elements.  I smooshed a scrap of Real Red into VersaMark, then heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice (a technique called Faux Diamond Dust or Dazzling Diamond Dust).  The small heart punchies add just a bit of bling.  It’s difficult to see (here and IRL) the pierced edge on the BB along the bottom.

Stamps:  None!

Ink:  VersaMark

Paper:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Real Red

Other:  1¼” Square Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, 1″  Circle Punch, Stampin’ Emboss Powder (Iridescent Ice) and Heat Tool, 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon (Real Red), Mat Pack and Piercing Tool

  3. Well, I’ve looked at this card, and thought too, not too girly. I love red, black and white, it’s a winning
    combination!!!
