A belated valentine

Well, it's another crazy week, and I haven't had much time to stamp, but I did want to share the valentine I made for Todd before it got too far past the official day! We made this card at my club last weekend - I have a tradition of doing a masculine valentine and my club members always seem to like it. Todd said, "I guess it's masculine enough" - he's a tough cookie! LOL! Anyway, since this is a valentine I'm also submitting it for the Friday Mashup valentine challenge.

This card uses the inlaid embossing technique that was featured on Splitcoast a couple weeks ago. I punched all my hearts from Riding Hood Red card stock, glued them onto a strip of Basic Black card stock, then ran it through the Big Shot with the square lattice folder. On the bottom I put a panel of houndstooth DP from the Love Letter pack with a strip of black satin ribbon to divide the two halves. The heart is from I Heart Hearts, and I used just the banner from the Be My Valentine single stamp. The card seemed to just need something else, so I took three of the smallest punched hearts, put silver brads through them, and added them to the card with glue dots.

That's it for today - got to run and get more stuff done - but I'll see you on Saturday for the next OCC challenge, if not before!
