VALENTINE - The East Wind DT

Howzit Everyone!
Some big changes have happened over at The East Wind!  We are concentrating more on promoting Unky's fabulous new release images and only hosting a couple of Challenges this year.  Today we have a Challenge for February to kick off our new schedule and the theme is Love and Romance!

Everyone needs ideas for making more masculine Valentine's Day cards for the guys so here's my design team project for the challenge, a masculine card featuring this lovely digi called Aurora "Be My Valentine".  I printed her out onto Neenah solar white cardstock, coloured with Copics and added white Dylusion paint pen highlights.  I fussy cut her out and adhered her to the layered panels with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive which were adhered to the folded card with pop dots.  I made the folded card from a sheet of black cardstock and also decorated the inside of the card with more of the stripe decorative paper.

I juxtaposed the lovely feminine image with the use of masculine black, white and gray decorative paper combined with metal alphabet paper clip embellishments to spell out the word "Valentine" plus 2 self adhesive black diamonds.  It's the perfect combination of a masculine card with a feminine focal point. 

 Come and enter our February challenge for the chance to win gorgeous The East Wind digis and join us over in our The East Wind Facebook Group too!

 Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!
Happy Stamping!
