Masculine Valentine's Inspiration with Rhonda

Happy Monday crafty friends!  It's Rhonda here today to share a project with you.

I thought I would challenge myself to create a masculine Valentine's card without including a heart in the design. Here's what I came up with:

"Always" (A2 size card)

I started with the Fiona's Magic Mirror frame, then added in a Rectangle Horizon Boutique Stacker Frame in red, some Chicken Wire which I cut into my own shape and layered on. 

The hinges are cut from a scrap piece of cereal box chipboard.  I then inked them with some dark brown chalk ink and then added a bit of Viva Decor Paint in copper with a pin to each of the nail holes. You can also punch these pieces out, but I left them in place for texture.

On the upper left you'll see some Wheat Heads and a Tiny Fanciful Flourish, on the bottom right, two Miniature Roses with Olive Branches beneath.  

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:

  1. Wow !! what a Fabulous card the layering and the colors too :)

  2. Is there a challenge for using the most dies on one card? Amazing! the depth they create without being too fussy.

  3. I find this gorgeous card very gender-neutral. My cards usually fall on the girlie end of the spectrum, and I would have been thrilled to make or receive this card. And...I didn't realize CL offered a ship's compass die. Gotta get it!

  4. Just drop-dead gorgeous Rhonda!!! I'm amazed by how many dies you have used here and the card not being cluttered at all!! That's just amazing xox Amy ;-)

  5. Beautiful card. Such great use of the compass die as the center piece
