His & Hers

I'm continuing a "love card" theme with my post today.  

This sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s set, From My Heart, is perfect for my Valentine.  
I put this card together quickly by simply layering punch shapes on top of my patterned paper (some retired SU! DSP).  The paper was just a little too girlie for my hubby, so I made another card using the same sentiment, but with a little more masculine style...

I created a tag out of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped it using the collage like stamp from Stampin' Up! set Postage Due in Sahara Sand ink.  I sponged the edges a bit for a slightly aged appearance.  I stamped the sentiment in Classic Black ink on vellum then stapled it on top of the tag.  Staples seem like a macho embellishment to me, but I couldn't resist using some natural ribbon & a little standard kitchen twine, too.  No bows, of course, no, that would not be manly!  

Were you inspired to make a special card for the man in your life this Valentines day?  Hope he likes it and appreciates the effort you put into it, if you did.  Happy stamping everyone!
