Valentines for the men in my life - difficult. S this year I am giving 5 sons (and SIL's) the same card. Well, not the SAME card - haha . I made 5 of the same type of card. I had already made a card for one SIL or else he would get the same type too. Making the same card five times definitely simplified things. And besides, I like this card so much I decided, "Why not give them all the same?"
I started with heart shapes on the computer and then added the mustache digital stamp (Doodle Pantry). I originally wanted to cut the hearts out and have the mustache over the negative space but I wasn't willing to fussy cut all those mustaches (15 in all). Second choice was to us a Copic and draw a line of color within the heart shape. (If you can outline something, can you inline it?)
The sentiment is my own also done on the computer and then cut out with a Spellbinder die.
The background paper is Doodle Pantry. Black fiber ribbon is from the Kraft Outlet.
Distress ink is Tim Holtz Tea Dye.
The hardest part of this card was lining up the hearts and spacing them and the mustaches equally.
Because I could make only 4 cards with one sheet of BG paper (8 x 10), I printed a darker version for my second sheet. Here is that card:
I like both of them. Here is the inside which I also printed on the computer and then just added astamped SU heart.
And the sketch I used for the front of the card is at Sketch Saturday
