Countless Sayings Masculine Valentine

Masculine Valentine 

You & Me. Forever.
"Short, sweet, says it all." the man in your life comments! LOL

But really. This chevron pattern just makes me think 'manly'. Looks kind of like diamond-plate, which makes me think of my Love's toolbox, and the garage, aka "his space". I think you could give this to your Mr. Man and he'd be OK with displaying it proudly. In the garage.

I had an extra chevron embossed Brown Sugar card front, and I looked in my handy dandy Color Coach to find a color that would stand out nicely against it. Brown Sugar is one of those colors that really goes well with almost everything, but one of the suggestions was Cherry Cobbler! Perfect for a luvvvv card. So I got out my heart punch and made a nice heart. then I couldn't decide how to set it off on the card base. I had wanted to use Gorgeous Grunge and CASE a card I liked, but the chevron base really didn't work with that. Plan B. I stamped the Forever stamp from the Countless Sayings 2 polymer set, and while I was putting it back I saw the You & Me stamps, and woo-hoo!! Card layout decided. Gah, that's always the longest part for me. Color and layout.

I laid out the stamps on my D clear block and stamped them in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla. I trimmed the vanilla out to roughly the same size as my block. I added the cut out heart scrap because it framed the You and added more emphasis there, balancing out the Forever heart by Me. ;-) Don't want it to be all about ME...

Happy Crafting!
