Hero Arts | Let’s Get Lost Together – Masculine Valentine’s Day Card

I have found the perfect color combo for masculine Valentine’s Day cards (or guy cards in general). I’ve used it on a number of cards already and it always works. The combo is: green (could be one or several shades of green) + brown (or kraft; again could be one or several shades) and white.

CARD DETAILS

I love travel stamps. I love stamp sets with images that I can use to create little scenes. I love “out of the box” stamps that work for both girl and guy cards. Flipping through my stamps I found two sets from Hero Arts – Road Trip and The Adventure Begins. Both “fit the bill” perfectly and inspired me to create a fun guy Valentine’s Day card.

If you’d like to re-create this project, follow these instructions:

  • Stamp tent and sign onto white paper using Hero Arts Intense Black ink, color using Copic markers and cut out right up to the edge. Use a black pen or marker and color the side of the paper to hide white.
  • Stamp identical tent and sign onto kraft panel cut to 3 3/4 x 5 1/2″.
  • Stamp tree line using Green ombre ink. The tree line stamp isn’t as long as I have it here, so stamp a part to the right of the tent and a part to the left of the tent overlapping a bit in the middle.
  • Stamp sentiment in black.
  • Stamp hearts line under the sentiment, stamp individual hearts.
  • Adhere tent, foam mount sign. Use white gel pen to color sign post.
  • Stamp XOXO in black onto gray strip, foam mount onto panel.
  • Adhere panel onto A2 top folding card base, add twine, adhere small and medium droplets.

There are many ways to color these images, I went with Copics and used a newly discovered color combo – YG99, YG95 and YG93 (I have a Copic Color Combo post coming up very soon, stay tuned if you are waiting for it).

    1. I love outdoor themed cards. And the kraft, white, and green is a perfect color combination. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Cute card! I love this colour combination and it is fitting for masculine cards. You could even add in acolour like blue too if another colour was needed.
