There's Something Fishy About These Valentines....
Hi there, crafty friends! Today I've got a pair of cute "manly" Valentines to share with you. I used the Newton's Nook Designs stamp set Tranquil Tides to create these. I started with a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper that I knew would work perfectly with this stamp set! (Did you hear that Basic Grey is going out of the paper crafting business? So sad!!) I heat embossed the fish from Tranquil Tides and added some heart shaped bubbles with a Sakura Glaze Gel Pen. I mounted the larger strip to a 4.25 x 5.5 card base and added thin black cardstock strips to the edges. I stamped and heat embossed the adorable sentiment, added Distress Ink and a few flecks of water and then cut it down, rounded the edges and added a hole at the top to create a tag, which was attached to the card with some baker's twine. I had extra patterned paper, and since I thought it was such a great match to the stamp set, I stamped some more fish and mounted the panel to black cardstock and then a top folding white card base.
I think these are cute cards for anyone, but especially the guy in your life...sweet, but not glittery and pink, lol!
Hope you've enjoyed my cards today. Have a great week!
