Manly Monday

Happy Monday!!!
Today is Manly Monday on the My Creative Time blog. I made a quick Valentine's card for today's project. I started with the largest rectangle die from the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and the Grainy Wood Background Stamp - REVISEDI cut the largest heart from the Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO Dies out of post it paper and created a mask. Once the mask was attached to the front of the rectangle. I lightly inked around the edge and once I liked the look, I pulled up the mask. Then I stamped the sentiment, from the Chalkboard Valentines in the center of the heart I created with the mask. Lastly, I added the glitter hearts. They were cut from the dies from the Carved Heart.
