A Valentine's Preview

Hello Friends!  Seems like forever since we have chatted.  One of my favorite holidays is coming up!  I just LOVE (tee hee) Valentine's Day!  I think it is a totally under-celebrated holiday.  What cultural holdiday could be more important than the one where we tell others how much we love them?  There just isn't enough of that in the world today! 
I want to share a Valentine's card with you.  I am calling this a masculine card!  I made this with my dear husband in mind.  He is such a sweetie and does so much for me and our 4 kiddos! 
Here's the "recipe"!  All products are Stampin' Up! unless noted. 
Card base is Pink Pirouette.  The designer series paper I used is called Love Impressions.  It is a few years old, but I am trying to use up old stock (so I can buy more!).  The colors of ink and card stock used are Real Red, Basic Gray, and Whisper White.  I used Whisper White satin ribbon.  I just love working with this satin ribbon.  It is so nice to work with.   I use a textured embossing folder, I'm not real sure if it was from SU or from a craft store.  I used a Bigz die to cut the gray hearts and then I just fussy cut around the stamped heart in Real Red.  I used the stamp set Filled with Love and a random red brad to set off the little banner. 
Well, I hope you enjoy this card.  I hope to spend more time with you this year!  Enjoy your Valentine's day and remember to tell your loved ones that they mean the world to you.
