Valentine's for a Man

With Valentine's around the corner, I have been in the mood to make Valentine's cards. Here is another one I made today.


The heart was cut from the Wall Decor and More cartridge at 4".

The letters were cut from the same cartridge. The B and M were cut at 0.75" and the rest of letters were cut at 0.5".

I cut vanilla stock 5" X 5.5". I then distressed the paper with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, then stamped it with several different stamps using a darker color of Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I used a corner punch on the corners to round them off. I then inked around the edges with the same ink.  I really liked the way it turned out.

I cut the flowered paper stock at 5.5" X 6". This paper is from Stampin' Up. I punched the corners of this  paper and inked around it in red ink.

I cut the red card stock at 6" X 6.5". I then punched the corners and inked around it in black ink.

I cut the black card stock to 6.5" X 7". I also punched the corners of it.

I added some Prima flowers. On the red flower, I ran it through my Xyron, then glittered it with Martha Stewart fine glitter.

Finally I added some square brads to the corners.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
