My hubbie's Valentine Card...

Here is my hubbies Vday card. It is not how it started out, but definitely I am happy with the end results. I always get stumped when trying to make a card for my hubby that is not so over the top and girly. I found this piece of paper. you can't tell in the picture but the burnt red images are shiny and have a slight glitter touch to them. And there is more of a closeup of the paper further down. I had a stamp I bought on clearance that said yes no maybe so. And the blue staples my friend Lori sent me and at the time I was wondering what I would do with a 5000 box of blue staples, but I really like them and may need to do some searching for more when I make it through my reserves. This ribbon I ran across when organizing my ribbons into these nice oversized Ball Canning jars. More pictures on that later in the week. But when I saw the paper I knew the ribbon would match perfectly.
Here is a closeup of the ribbon. the angle of the word isn't great to see but it says cherish. And you can see the little gold glitter hearts I drew in order to make it more Vday-ish. I love my sakura glitter pens.

Here is the inside. Which I used another corner of the paper and ripped it and attached to the maroon cardstock base I used. This card is square 6x6 and folds up.

Here is a closeup of the gold leaf. I have a few of these and think they are so classy and popped a little on the paper.  I glued it right along the spine so it wouldn't stay flat.

And here are my words as I tried to write similar to the stamp I used. To make my own "absolutely" check box.

Well he tells me he doesn't read my blog often. So I hope that still holds true. Or he better act totally impressed and in love with it when he opens it. hahaa.

All from my stash. Yeah!

And this year I am double happy because he got a homemade valentine again. Maybe I am learning how to manage my time a little bit better or have just wiped those things that don't matter as much off my list of to-do's and focused on the most important ones.

And don't forget I am hosting this week's weekly challenge...
