So beautiful, Kirsty! I love your roses and no not to girly for your husband! Yes, all the sewing stamps are from the new mini catalog. You can view online!I love them!

Ira said...

My very first reaction? You could easily give this card away to a guy, so yes, you can give your husband this rosy card, besides, it's torn on the sides, most guys will think this is cool :-)

This is so beautiful, Kirsty! You do vintage so well. I love how you made a heart with all those roses. I love the dimension! I don't think there's such a thing as too girly for the husband. He should love anything you make! ;)

I love the hearty roses..Kirsty, this is a romantic card and it's lovely to give it to your hubby! Happy New Year to you too!!!

Tracy said...

LOL About the only way you can make a masculine Valentine's card is if it's a goofy joke one. Otherwise it has to be kind of girly. :-) Yours isn't as girly as the one I posted on my blog today. LOL Hugs!

Tracy said...

Whoops! Forgot to tell you that I love your card. :-)

sweet craf-tea chick said...

Stella said...

Your husband will love it. And I think it's lovely :) I love that heart made of roses; what a clever idea to cut them and use them this way. And you can never go wrong with a polka dot background and a doily. Your card is gorgeous!
