Hi everyone! It's Holly, your February guest designer, posting today. Happy Valentine's Day! I needed a masculine Valentine's card to give to my sweetie, so I pulled out my Cheery Lynn Designs dies to see what I could come up with. Obviously, since I wanted it to be more masculine, I didn't add a lot of frills and flowers. I kept this card sweet and simple by using these dies:
Sophia's Heart Border
Hugs Mix and Match
Coved Rectangle - Classic LG Stackers
I inlaid the die cut pieces of the inside of the heart. Because the background is so busy, I wanted the Hugs to stand out. Look at the Hugs sentiment. Can you see the shadowing there? I cut it out twice - once from dark brown paper and once from vanilla paper. I glued the vanilla Hugs on top of the dark brown Hugs, slightly offsetting the letters. That's how you get a subtle shadow effect. For the corners, I cut the pieces from the Sophia's Heart Border - they fit beautifully in the corners of the Coved Rectangles.
Thanks for visiting me here at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog. Come on back next Friday - I can't wait to show you what I created!! I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
