"When it comes to create something for Valentine’s Day, what first come into my mind are the hearts and the flowers. It’s a challenge to think outside of the box and especially to create something masculine. It’s quite easy to add the flowers and the ribbons.
However I do like Graphic45 papers for bringing the paper lines that fits equally to both - men and women.
That is why I decided to make some kind of “For Him” cards, I do make it not often, but actually I had a blast while matching all the pieces together.
I have already shared with you that I like making a couple cards at once, it gives me the choice for playing with the papers , as I want to use all of them at once.
I also like doing fussy cutting, and sometimes it makes me sad that I ‘ve made all of those cutting preparations in vain ( as I never know what I will use exactly ), so it it allows you to bring together many paper layers and the pieces from the large ones to the most tiny.
Just one more tip from me , while bringing all the embellishments and pieces together using one collection, it may happen that you need something to make a stress on or an accent to add on, in that case you may search for something more bright or a different shape.
In my case I made some stamping on the Kraft cardstock with the black ink, then I cut the images out and put then on my card. They are different and they are easily combined with the colors of the collection." ~Elena
