You Make My Heart Sing

Do you remember a couple of days ago when I said I had an idea for another Man-Card for someone special for Valentine’s Day?  That idea worked perfectly with this week’s sketch by Linda Callahan for Freshly Made Sketches.

Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my card:

This card is a digital hybrid, meaning that the “stamped” images were printed from My Digital Studio.  I started with a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and then adhered it to a Not Quite Navy card base.  My husband is a guitar player, so I wanted to incorporate the Music Notes, Extreme Guitar and Extreme Elements (all digital downloads available for use with or without My Digital Studio).

I used Soft Suede Classic Ink and a Stamping Sponge to shade the edges and give it a little bit of a ‘grunge’ look.  The heart was cut out of Real Red cardstock with the Full Heart Punch.  I typed the sentiment and printed it onto Whisper White cardstock.  Two Metallic Brads accentuated the sentiment that was cut with the Modern Label Punch.     

I hope you enjoyed my Man-Card, and I hope my man enjoys it, too!  Now go on over to Freshly Made Sketches, see what the Design Team has prepared for you, and join us in this week’s challenge.  I hope to see you there!

SUPPLIES:  Paper:  Not Quite Navy, Real Red and Whisper White;  Digital Downloads Stamp Brush Sets:  Extreme Guitar, Extreme Elements and Music Notes;  Ink (via My Digital Studio):  Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler;  Tools:  Full Heart Punch, Modern Label Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder;  Accessories:  Metallics Brads.
