I wanted to experiment with a simple Valentines day card. I didn't want to go for traditional pinks and reds or the word "Love". I wanted to make it a little bit more masculine so that a man might not feel too embarrassed to have it on display!
I started by die-cutting a heart out of a piece of paper from the Metalica range by Kanban. I then glued that onto a peice of brown card and cut around it very carefully. I used two distress inks around the edge - Wild Honey and Pumice Stone - to give it a little depth.
I peirced a small hole at the top and threaded a thin piece of brown satin ribbon throught the hole. I then added a small padlock and heart (by Prima) and tied the ribbon into a bow.
The heart was them matted onto a piece of ribbed kraft card and anothe piece of brown card stock. Finally it was all matted onto a 6 x6 white card blank. and a small sentiment added. Am really pleased with the result.
