Valentine's Cards... part 2

I created this card for a more masculine valentine. It's so hard to make manly V.D. cards! It is a heart themed holiday washed in pinks and reds. How manly can you make them? Here's my take.

I started with base of Basic Black. I used clear embossing powder and embossed X's and O's all over in a random pattern. Then I stamped the x-o-x-o definition in Real Red on Whisper White. I put a layer of black under that, and then I had to add the layer of red to make it pop. I also had to add the red bow. Not very manly, but necessary.

I have two with slightly different cards here. On the second one, the sentiment panel is a bit bigger and the ribbon is different, too.

Thanks for looking!
