Rustic Charm for a Masculine Valentine’s Day Card

Learn how to create a simple masculine valentine card using Stampin Up - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

This is my last Valentine’s Day card of the year but definitely not the least!  It’s created for my husband, Scott.  I love the rustic mix of the wood grain patterns (Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper) for the masculine card and envelope flap.

The medium and largest hearts were cropped with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform.  The Magnetic Platform allows me to cut the exact wood grain pattern I want for these hearts.

The “always” stamp and coordinating heart die are both from the Sure Do Love You Bundle.  

The ultimate pizzazz is a wood cut stem from Touch of Nature Elements.  I adhered it with Glue Dots.

Quick and easy!  The flagged end was created with the Banner Triple Punch.
