So off I went to the craft room and the first card I made turned out very nice indeed . . . if I were giving it to a woman.
*sigh* What was I thinking? Ok, so here's the first card, totally unsuitable for a man:
And here is the inside of that card:
Each section of the inside heart book is either stamped with words (Love, Cute, Sweet, Irresistible, XOXO, etc) or stickers. The card is an oversized 5 1/2" X 7 1/4". I got the pattern for the heart book on the inside here. I've decided to enter this one into Inspiration Emporium's "Put a Heart on It" challenge. That was Saturdays work.
Back to the craft room on Sunday to make a manly card. Here's was where the bad hair day came in. First I cut off about an inch of my hair in the Fisker's cutting when cutting the darn cardstock to the correct size. Once again a 5 1/2" X 7 1/2" card on two sided stock. One side red, the other pink.
Then I got my hair somehow taped under the first layer with the double stick tape. Crap. Ok, that did it. I took the time to get a large hairclip. Then I stabbed myself with the exacto knife while trying to get the fancy red fiber out from underneath the King of Heart. Had to go get a bandaid, took the darn hairclip out that was giving me a headache and wnet back to it. Finally finished the front successfully, then glued my hair to the pop - up on the inside with the elmers glue. Good thing this card was for dh, lol. Anyway, I was not very happy with the way this one turned out, but I think he will like it. Here are the pics. Outside:
And inside. It's hard to tell the center heart is a pop up, but it really is.
And those are the only two Valentines I made this year.
