Making a romantic card to give to a guy can be pretty hard. After all, how do you share your romantic feelings without the card coming across too feminine for the masculine taste? Well I did it by using dark colors and papers, and avoiding any 'cute' or 'girly' images.
This is a card I made for my husband for our 28th Wedding Anniversary.
You will never believe where these papers are from: DCWV "The Immortal Love". The papers were inspired by the "Twilight" books and movies that I never read or saw. When I bought these papers the movies were popular and the cashier thought I was a little coo-coo for purchasing them. I said "What? They'll make great papers for anniversary or love cards!" And they do!
To make my card I used a sketch from Our Daily Bread and a sentiment stamp from MFT. I hand cut the heart out of the same paper stack and popped it up on dimensionals. The only other embellishment I used was the ribbon; although I did put a tad of black glitter glue on the hearts in the sentiment.
My husband absolutely loved his card and took it to work to keep displayed on his desk. WIN!
Have a great day! Amy
Great card! I agree it's hard to make a romantic masculine card. But you pulled it off with the beautiful sentiment and heart! My husband usually gets something with cute animals like the recent "I just love you" card I had posted on my blog :-) Glad to read I am not the only one who hasn't watched or read Twilight. I thought I was the only one.ReplyDelete
