Hello, Friends! Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays and it's just around the corner! Women tend to love Valentine's Day, but often find it hard to come up with a card or a design for the men in their lives. So I thought I would share another fun Valentine's Day idea design with guys in mind.
My husband loves to make lists. In fact, he keeps a little list pad right beside his place at the breakfast table and writes down everything that needs to be tended to. Sometimes, when we have a very long errand list on Saturday, we will look at one another and say, "Aaaaaaaand, they're off!" This is just one of those silly things that makes a relationship so much fun, but it got me to thinking that making a handsome Honey Do List Notepad from Graphic 45's Off to the Races Collection would make a great Valentine's Day Card.
This collection is loaded with patterns and images that work well on masculine projects. To mimic the boutonnieres sported by these dapper gents, I created a mini boutonniere embellishment using Petaloo flowers and a snippet of ribbon.
This White Baby's Breath Pick serves as the base for the boutonniere. It's topped off with a couple of Black Mixed Textured Blossoms. The black and white combo is classic and looks really handsome with the papers.
The front cover flips up to reveal a 4x6 sticky note pad and a tag/gift pocket.
I added an ephemera tag and some simple paper elements to the tag, but was sure to leave plenty of room for a mushy (more likely silly) Valentine note. There's plenty of room in the pocket to tuck in a gift card or some yummy chocolate.
I hope this gave you an idea you can "run with" for Valentine's Day.
Thanks for stopping by!
