i ♥ you

This is the card I'm giving to Lee today for Valentine's Day.

Masculine cards are hard to keep masculine.

I always want to add more...  lol

So I held back and left it as is.

Today I will share with you how I made the woodgrain paper.

I inked up a woodgrain embossing folder with Saddle ink by rubbing the ink pad directly onto the inside top part of the folder.

Then I quickly placed a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Cashmere cardstock into the folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.

The ink is pushed into the grooves of the cardstock, giving it the two tones.

And here's a card I made especially for you!

Ok, who am I kidding?  It's for me.  lol
{ I luv The Rock! }

Happy Valentine's Day & happy creating!  :)

Paper:  White Daisy, Cashmere CS
Stamp:  Dotted Love mini stamp
Inks:  Black, Saddle, Versamark

Ooooo, thanks for the embossing tip! I had to find out how you did that! ;) Great job with the masculine card. I always have to hold myself back from adding glitter.
