Love You So

Sometimes it’s hard to make a masculine valentine, right?! I went a little grungy on this one but added a few embellishments to keep it pretty but I think it’s minimal enough that a guy wouldn’t mind too much. :)

Love You So

I used the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments and the color combo from Just Add Ink to whip this little card up.

I started with a Sahara Sand card base, and stamped the Off the Grid image to create my first “circle” and then stamped a few hearts in Real Red to create my second “circle” in the sketch. That’s the beauty of using sketches as a starting point, you can really go anywhere with them! :)

I used a left over word bubble in Pool Party from a scrapbook layout I made last week and stamped the sentiment from Geometrical on it in Island Indigo ink. After that was adhered to the card I added some sequins and a mini heart punched from the Owl Builder punch. Last, a little arrow was added below the word bubble.

Tomorrow the hubby and I are going skiing for his birthday! He’s such an awesome guy and I hope he enjoys the day!
