Hubby's Valentine

Here is the card that I made for my husband for
Valentine's Day.
While this is a Valentine the basic idea
would work for any "man card".

The textured layer, which is dark brown, was
done with a Cuttlebug folder. It looks like the decking
from a cattle pot. OK, let me explain, my husband
trucked cattle all over the western United
States for about 10 years. This looks
like the texture of the aluminum on the
floors of the cattle hauling trailers. It
was to help keep the cattle from slipping.
This type of texture is also used on some
of the aluminum steps put on pickups
and ramps for loading things
in the back of pickups.
Why am I blathering on about this?
Because this texture is a very manly
guy type look.

The ric rac is a Sizzix extended cut die.
The hearts are a McGill punch.
The stamp is an unknown from when
I first stamping 19 years ago.


  1. I like the way you linked the hearts together. Great choice for a masculine Valentine.

  2. Ohhh! Vicki, what a design for Easter. Ric rak cris cross is tilted to be on a hill, far away, cross. Change the sentiment to Happy Easter accented by three intersecting hearts and the card is Scriptural, the reason for the season. While surfing, this design caught my eye for easily multitasking. That metal tred could double as rocks, inferring climbing upward/ uphill. Meantime, uplifting Japanese residents and all families of earthquake/ tsunami devastation.
    Keep Looking UP!
