14 Days of Valentine’s Cards – Day 12!

By Taheerah | 12th February 2013 | 8 Comments

Hey everyone! Welcome back to Day 12!

For those of you who are new to my Valentine’s Showcase, here’s what I’m going on about:

Due to the popularity of my 25 Days of Christmas Cards posts (well, they were popular with me anyway!), I thought I’d bring you a series of cards that are perfect for Valentine’s Day! And, just to give this series a little twist, I am challenging myself and keeping them all as cards that are suitable for guys! Every year I see a smorgasbord of beautiful Valentine’s cards, and they are all very well done and very inspiring – but they all tend to be very girly. So I’m bucking the trend and bringing you a fortnight of cards dedicated to the men in our lives!

Fun right?! My series is nearly drawing to a close –  just a few more days now!

So today’s card is inspired by a quote from a movie I kinda like, No Strings Attached. One of the characters is a doctor and gives a Valentine’s card that says this on it, and I loved that quote so I went with it:

Doesn’t look much on the outside does it? But read on and all will be revealed!

I started with a Smokey Shadow card base and stamped the letters from Mama Elephant’s Midnight Letters. I am annoyed that I still can’t get all the lines centralised, but that’s life I guess! The letters were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Still rather plain huh? Well it’s what inside that counts!

I think this is so so fun – and this is where this card comes into its own!

I stamped the heart from Avery Elle’s Lots of Love set using Versamark ink then heat embossed with Rouge Zing! embossing powder. I then overstamped the lines from Sweet Stamp Shop’s Watchin’ TV set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I added the ‘explanation’ by stamping the letters from MFT’s Typewriter Alphabet set – and I was all done!

Well I do hope you’ll be back to join me for the penultimate in this series – and in the meantime I’d love to receive your comments on this card! Thanks so much for stopping by!
