a note for my love...

This was a card I made for my amazing hubby...he was so sweet to let me take off Saturday night to go to the Donna Downey class, and then ALL day Sunday for CHA. He takes such wonderful care of me and our family, I just had to give him a little love note! *wink*
I used a standard A2 card base in Chocolate Chip, with Swiss Dots debossed down the edge using the Cuttlebug. All of the sticker elements are from Stampin' Up!'s Messenger Accents and Elements (which is now retired...sorry!). I put the 'UR fabulous' sticker onto a strip of Ruby Red (after punching the edge with my Martha Stewart scallop punch), and added a layered flower that I built up from 3 graduated stickers, with a pewter snap in the center, and foam tape underneath. I left the chipboard letters raw, and added a hand-cut Ruby Red heart to link them.

Every time I make a card, my DH *always* looks inside...even though he knows I tend to leave the inside blank so that the card can be customized later. So, just for him, I finished the inside of this one. *wink*
I centered a 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" panel of Kraft CS, and added one of the Messenger sticker strips to the edge, and another layered flower to the corner.

He {loved} it! It's sitting on his desk at work now... *wink*

That is so funny, Jay does the same thing! I always tell him, "honey, there is nothing inside" but he looks every time. This is a beautiful card and Phillip is a gem and very deserving!

Well opening it up is what you always do in the store. Wouldn't want to buy a card that said something inappropriate inside!
