Today's card was made for 3 challenges this week. The StampTV Make It Monday Challenge It Ain't Easy to be Cheesy, where Guest Designer Allie Gower challenges us to use something related to photography on our card. My take on this was to use a wood background paper which was a real photograph. Another challenge is the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Love Letters. Self explanatory with that one I think. And then the third one is the Love To Scrap Challenge, to include the word "love" somewhere on the card.
Here's my card:
For this card I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 120 lb. card stock in white for the base. Also used were GKD Pure Luxury Cherry Red and Black Onyx card stocks. Other papers were from the DCWV stack called Textures and Finishes. I used the wood grain and gold foil. The greeting (which looks crooked in the photo for some reason, but really isn't) is from the GKD stamp set True Love. And I love the beautiful die set I used! It's 5 Hearts by Paper Artist Cutting Dies, from Hot off the Press. Just look how delicate that LOVE word is. Their dies are awesome!! They cut through pretty thick card stock, and release easily for the most part. I highly recommend them.
I think this is a pretty good rendition of a Masculine Valentine Card. And we all know how hard that can be to produce.
Thanks for stopping by - and stay warm, my friends.
