So have you started thinking about making Valentine's for your sweeties yet? I am the only girlie in a house filled with men, so as much as I would LOVE to make frilly, fussy, lacy, gorgeous Valentine's covered in doilies and such, there just aren't that many people I can give them to. My guys kinda frown on receiving them. ;) They tend to also like to receive the most simple cards, which goes against my grain, so I do my best to keep embellies to a minimum when I craft for them. But I can't make a card without ribbons! Just not happening!
That is when I pull out my natural fibers and trims for their cards. I'll still add a flower or two, because guys still like flowers, just usually not a whole card full of them.
It's time to get creative with your ribbon choices on those masculine cards!
2 1/2" cotton ribbon as a base for my trim across the bottom of the card. Love the frayed edges to it! :) This was topped with the gorgeous 1/2" red wrinkled ribbon that has such a fabulous texture. It looks wonderful against that natural cotton ribbon.
A pretty carnation makes a simple accent. Flowers similar to this one can be found in the RRR store. In fact, a brand new shipment of Wild Orchid Craft mulberry flowers has just arrived, so have fun filling up your shopping cart! There are some I can't wait to get my crafty hands on! :) Click on the 'new' tab at the top of the page to see all of the fun new goodies!
By the way, since I first started my blog, I have called my hubby my 'hunny bunny.' when I came across this sentiment stamp, I had to grab it!
