Artistic Etchings makes Masculine Valentine

Today's card, perfect for Valentines Day, is a good one for giving to that special fella in your world.  The DSP is retired, but you could substitute our Neutrals Designer Paper Stack, or our First Edition Specialty DSP (24 double-sided sheets for $12.95!)  But anyway, the special feature on this card is the ruffled ribbon...for this card I used Basic Black Satin ribbon.  I put a little SNAIL (SU's in-line adhesive) on the end of the ribbon and attach it to the back of the card.  Then, with a glue dot, make a fold and stick it down....I did this twice, adding two folds to the ribbon.  Then, because the card is black, It helps to have an insert on the inside of the card, so you can write something in.  I like this simple layout, and could probably show you about a dozen other cards with the same layout...but they look totally different because they use other colors and stamps.
