My Love Is Strong


Here's a minimalistic Valentine's card, which has been enlivened with a few touches of glitter which, of course, don't show up on the photo.

The strong man stamp, the little hearts and heart tattoo are by Avery Elle and I used one blue ink pad and one blue marker. I made the 'strong' on the Silhouette. 'My love is ' was made by cutting up some Waffle Flower stamps (the 'is' was originally 'miss'!) - I'm sure you can see that there were some spacing issues in the stamping...I've decided to call them the 'natural imperfections' of a handmade card!

A homemade card has charm, with its little imperfections. If you want a super perfect one buy one at a store. That's my motto:)
This is a different take in the valentines theme, so fun and masculine!

I love the look of this! Totally yields the look of the old-fashioned circus strong-man with blue tattoos... thanks for stopping by!
