2 Valentines

Cold, snowy, blizzardy day here so I am taking advantage and crafting. I made 2 cards for Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. My crafting resolution for the New Year is to pull out ribbon from my box of scrap pieces and design cards around them. I really need to use up some of them. So this is the perfect challenge to start that resolution.
Here is my masculine version:
I found this cloth tape measure in the box. It was old but still a little bright yellow so I sponged on SU chocolate brown. Ran the kraft card base thru Big Shot with CP wood folder and then sponged chocolate brown on the highlights. Red heart is cut with Cricket. The sentiment is done on computer and trimmed in a white heart shape. I used the negative image of a heart cut with Cricket, centered it over the sentiment, traced the outline and cut it out.  Accents are  hammer and copper brads.
 Here is the inside:
My second card is the feminine version of the same layout. Here there are 3 scraps of different design pink theme ribbons.
The white doily looked a little lost on the white card base so I sponged on some Martha Stewart pink geranium ink. The fairy stamp has lost her label so I can't give credit there. She is colored with colored pencils. I used a clear star gel pen for the wings and gold star gel pen for crown. There are actually stars in the image but I covered them with small pink punched hearts. Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is from SU. Haven't quite figured out the inside of this one yet. It will probably be for my granddaughter.
