So, we are so grateful for our amazing Design Team who not only shares multitude of inspiration, but also their knowledge and tutorials with us. We hope it inspires you to cut into those lovely papers and create a masterpiece. Today, Rhea Freitag shares a brilliant masculine Valentine's Day card and tutorial.

We are in love with this maculine Valentine's Day card by the amazing Rhea. Check out her tutorial below as well!

"This card was inspired by the notion of trying to make a masculine Valentine card with a steampunk feel. I chose a few coveted scraps of Halloween in Wonderland and combined them with Typography for the perfect mash up.  The use of the washi tape is superb for creating a heavy backdrop for a card like this with tons of embellishments.  I made a little snapguide to show you how I put together this creative masculine card." ~Rhea
