Valentines Day Card Ideas For Your Man

There are so many beautiful Valentines Day card ideas out there, but I still have a hard time finding ideas for guys. Here are a couple cards that I have made for my man in the past.....

I found this card on Kwerner Design blog (click here to see the original). It had a pink bow and polka dots (so cute), but not good for a guy. As soon as I saw this card I had to make it for my husband because we love hot chocolate. I didn't have the stamps so I improvised. I found a cute dingbat font called Sugar Coma where I got the hot chocolate mug. I printed out two mugs. I pasted one directly on the card, and the other one I placed on top of the pasted one with a pop dot. It would have been good to cut out the white space in the handle, but I did not have a sharp exacto knife so I did not sweat it. Click HERE to download the free sugar coma dingbat font - a great font to have for Valentines Day projects.

This idea was found in a Paper Crafts magazine. The original had a stamped measuring tape, but again, I made do with what I had and went to my handy tool - the internet - and found a clip art that worked. The screw brads I found at Michael's, but I did see them a couple times at a $ store. The heart is from a $ store card making kit. On the inside I wrote
How does one measure what they can't explain?
I love you more than words can say.

Here is another card I made for my husband. Check out the details on how I made it by clicking HERE.

I have been wracking my brain about what to do for this years card and came up with the idea last night. I will post it in a few days.
Thanks for looking!
