I recently had a request to design a male Valentine’s Card for a group of ladies. I struggled with this at first, my husband and I do usually exchange cards on Valentine’s Day but we don’t place much significance on it. I also don’t have many stamp sets which have hearts or “happy valentine’s” greetings on them, so I had to come up with something using what I currently do have. I hope you like the end result. I also made a small matching box. We made a similar box at last year’s Stampin’ Up! training night here in Canberra, but I altered it slightly and made it from one piece of cardstock instead of two. Much easier for my class of beginner stampers and box makers. And it is just the right size for a couple of chocolates or a small gift.
