Unique Masculine Card Idea

The unique masculine card idea I’m sharing today was the Valentine’s Day card I made for my husband this year!

I had been playing with ideas for my upcoming Playing with Rubbing Alcohol Technique Class and showed my husband some of what I’d been playing with. He seemed to really like what I shared so I decided to design something similar as a little surprise for Valentine’s Day. He absolutely loved his card!

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. It was stamped onto my Soft Suede card stock and then dry embossed with my Subtle 3D embossing folder.

I wanted the sentiment to be subtle as to not compete with the gorgeous focal piece. The size, font, and sentiment work perfectly!
