A Love Card for Him


Hello everyone! It’s Sandy with a love card you can make for that guy who makes your heart skip a beat when he walks in a room! And tell me – do you think it’s still masculine with this Sparkly Fluff glitter on it?? I think so, but I’m not sure my opinion would matter if a guy looked at a card with glitter on it!

    Wonderful video and great love card idea.  Very cleverly done!

    This is definitely a masculine card, hands down! The white and black really allow the red touches to pop! And the repeating zigzag shape is just so cool! And the shimmer of the embossing just adds that touch of pizzazz. Love everything about this card!

    Loved this card! Any man would love getting it.

  5. Sarah

    Absolutely amazing!  Love this and love the video!  Definitely will be making one of these… some day 😉

    Wonderful masculine card!  A very unique idea, love it.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I hope you don't mind if I use your idea (I promise they will all go in my OWH box – except for one for my DH)!

  7. Susan Hiles

    This is such a great way to use ribbon! Very inspiring. 

  8. Dixie

    That's a clever card and a fabulous video tutorial! Very professional!

    Yes, it's definitely a masculine card.  I've always loved the crisp look of red, white, and black, and your use of these colors is  very effective.  I need to try some clear embossing soon since I have some border stamps that don't look great stamped with ink.  Clear embossing might be the way to go.  Thanks for the video!

    Oh my! Such a unique, creative idea. It is absolutely a masculine card and I would give it to my dear hubby in a heartbeat 😉

  11. Sandy L

    Fabulous! Beautiful and very neat card and great video!

    Adorable card!

  14. Diana Rae Evensen

    The glitter is very, very subtle.  Yes, the strong red/black/white and nothing "frilly" makes this a masculine card.  The EKG line also give a more masculine feel than femine.  Great job Sandy.

      I love that the sparkle in the Fluff is subtle – I'm not sure this would have been masculine if it was totallly glitterified! 🙂

    What an absolutely amazing card, and a great video to go with it!

  16. Trish Reddick

    Yes, Sandy, this is a masculine card and my sweetie would love it, so I will make one for him! This is a GREAT card and super video. Thanks!

  17. Melanie

    Love it! I'm "pinning" this so maybe, maybe I'll remember it for Hubby next Valentine's Day. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    1. Sandy Allnock

      Let me know if you do try it – would love to see your interpretation!

    This is a very clever card idea that does well for the men.  You are one creative woman!

    This was a wondeful card and a great tutorial. Love how you used the ribbon on edge. It really made the card. Yep! I'd qualify it as masculine. And I love how you added the glitter without the mess., Thanks for sharing.
