my card for my fabulous hubby!

My second post of the day!!!!! told you I would be back later!!! Lol!!!

So this card is for my amazing husband Scott. We will of been together for 8 wonderful years tomorrow, 4 of them married. We chose to get married on the date we first got together as it holds so much for both of us. For any of you who know me already, you will know Scott is amazing. He supports and encourages my crafting which I appreciate fully and he is the best guy ever.
Ok enough of me slushing and getting emotional!!! onto my card!!!

I got this funky fella's paper pack from funky hand before I got my little place on the DT. I loved that it was proper fella paper! boys colours and patterns!!
I had an idea for this card last night and then it just flowed!! I cut my heart on my cricut in the patterned paper first, I used the shadow function fr it because I knew I wanted another layer to peep through too.
The funky fella's paper cut like butter (which was fab as sometimes my cricut decides to eat my papers for a snack!!!!)

Then I cut my underneath layer in normal so it had a nice edge showing beneath the patterned layer.I roughed up the edges on both as its a man card!!!

The 'love' text stamp is from magnolia and I stamped it with frayed jeans distress ink and then went around the edges of it with my antique linen. I wanted to smudge the edges of the text into my antique linen but think I will have to practice that a bit more!!!

Then a bit of inking and time to cut the sentiment. I chose the 'I love you' from george again and cut it in the same papers to match it in. I popped it on a piece of acetate with a heart shaped brad so it dangles above my heart. I popped some crackle glaze on the sentiment but its a little hard to see in the piccy I think.

The 2 little hearts in the bottom left I embossed on my foam mat, inked a little with black and then siliconed onto my card.

I hope Scott will love this, I find mens cards a bit tricky!!!! but it will have a slushy essay on the inside by tomorrow morning !!!!

Thank you so much for popping back in!!

hugs Lou xx
