Game On Masculine Valentine

game on masculine valentine 1

 It's that time of year again, when I create a new creative design for a masculine valentine for my hubby, who some of my customers refer to as Mr. Stampin' Up!, because he delivers their orders to them for me! This year I used Game On for my design. I don't know if you noticed, but all the cards in the image with the playing cards are hearts! In fact it's a royal flush of hearts, one of the rarest hands in poker!! I can't think of a better metaphor for a good husband in marriage that has lasted for almost 43 years! Lucky me, indeed!

I'll be featuring this card in my Monday Morning Live on Facebook today so tune in at 11 am PST to Playing with Papercrafting:

  • My Crumb Cake base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on the long side.
  • The next layer is Soft Suede, cut at 5 1/4" x 4".
  • The Very Vanilla panel is 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". It's sponged around the edges with Soft Suede. On it the images are embossed in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, even the sentiment on the banner.
  • The images are from Game On, including the bottom sentiment.
  • The sentiment on the top banner is from the Always in My Heart stamp set and is die cut with the Floral Heart dies.
  • All the small hearts are die cut with the small stitched heart in the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies. You'll notice that they don't have the hole for the tag that that die has built in. That's because I got my husband to take it off with some metal cutters because I wanted a small heart of that shape.
  • The hearts are Crumb Cake, sponged with Soft Suede, Real Red, and Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock, which won't be available again until the next July/Dec Mini Catalogue, but I have a ton of it left.
  • The final embellishment is a bow tied with a quadruple layer of linen thread and added with a glue dot.

That's the materials and measurement used. Tune into my Facebook live this morning to see how to put it together, or catch the replay on YouTube.
