Je t’aime Mon Amore!

Bonjour! jajaja… It’s all romanticism and love sentiments, with Valentine’s Day around the corner! I have been wanting to make a card for my husband, a male but still elegant card. And I came up with a beautiful design that I knew he’d like! But guess what? He came to my desk and saw it! Augh! I was keeping it a secret, and was not going to post it. There’s no case in hiding it anymore… LOL.

I decided it would be a 5×7 card, with a fold that would appear as a faux pocket. The swirls I hand cut from a Spellbinders Gold Elements One die. I lined the inside of the card, and to finish it I added some ribbon, cristals and a stamped sentiment and tag.

– Gold Elements One
– Ornamental Iron M-bossabilites
Justrite Ooh La La French Frills
Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo
Memento Dye Ink in Rich Cocoa
Merletto stickers
Other generic materials
3/8 Gross grain ribbon in light brown
Heavy weight paper in cream
Pearlescent paper in dark gold

Hope you like it, and that it can inspire you to create something special for the man in your life! Have a lovely & romantic week!

  1. Beautiful, romantic and masculine all at the same time! That is not easy to do! Love the repeated swirls element and your color choices are brilliant! Thanks for playing along in the very first Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge.
