Valentine's Day for Husband

This is my Valentine for my Valentine. Short, but sweet. I used kraft cardstock, which is quickly becoming my favorite neutral. Kind of like the "Saws-All" of paper crafting, yes?

I also used some SEI patterned paper: Rochester from its Windsor collection. I used Heidi Swapp metallic self-adhesive chipboard hearts. The sentiment is from SU! Always, but I had a challenge stamping it. First it was crooked, then only part of it showed. Let's just say the panel of patterned paper was a lot smaller when I began. Finally, I opted for stamping the sentiment and then going over it with a fine tip pen. Looks almost like I wrote it, eh? I added some doodling to make it look like it was meant to look hand-drawn.

I inked the patterned paper and the card frame with SU! Basic Gray. For the inside of the card (also shown), I used SU! Happy Everything's "happy," and I then wrote "Valentine's Day" by hand.

I really like how simple this was... much bang for the buck. I also liked using some non-traditional colors for Valentine's Day.

Oh, awesome masculine card! I love the blue hearts with the dots traced around them.
