Masculine Card – Valentine’s Day

I’ve been getting better at creating masculine cards…practice makes perfect, right?! πŸ‘πŸ»

Lets get right into it.

Hello Handsome

Supplies

  • Altenew Fine Alphabet Dies
  • Hello Die with Background
  • Frantic Stamper Precision Die – Cascading Hearts (for the heart embellishments)
  • Simon Says Cardstock – Red
  • Fun Foam – Black
  • Reflections 65lb Cardstock – Black
  • Deco Foil – Silver
  • Laminator
  • Laser Printer

The Card

I’m a big fan of raised letters on my cards. I especially enjoy them with stamped images. This was supposed to be the final result for this card, but I used the wrong ink and the Xs and Os eventually faded to…nothing.

Was my Background for my Panel

I will note that I only had one 11 x 81/2 sheet of red cardstock. This was enough to create my card base and panel. I was a little worried about making a mistake as I only had the one sheet and nothing to replace it with.

I die cut H A N D S O M E on my card panel, and die cut the same letters in black fun-foam using my altenew alphabet dies. I pulled out one of my ‘hello‘ dies and cut it out of black cardstock, with the background die in vellum.

For the inside of my card, I printed my sentiment on black cardstock using my laser printer and applied silver Deco Foil with my laminator. Finally, I added die cut hearts to both the font and inside panel in black and red.

Inside Panel

This card was pretty easy but I would have loved it if my Xs and Os didn’t fade away. This would have made my card pop.
