Card - You mean so much to me!

Hello! Welcome to my blog!

Today I have a new card to show you. This one comes out very late, as it was made for the Valentine's day, but you know what? We can give a card to our loved ones everyday and not just for the Valentine's day, right?!

What I sometimes find difficult to make, is to combine a love and appreciation theme of card, with a masculine style. So this card started with a white cardstock base but it looked so...not masculine! And then, as my hubby's favorite color is black, it 'hit' me. Let's introduce some black here! Then, it all came out easily. The black background would match perfectly with a combined black banner, and this is the result!

I love the texture of the red painted modelling paste!

I have also used a matching brad that says "you're my treasure" and a bow made from thick twine.

And here is an other view of my love-masculine card!

I hope you like it and got inspired to make yours! I would be happy to get your comments or answer your questions. Thank you for visiting my blog!
