AAA Cards: Love from Mom and Dad

Masculine cards are never easy - but I think it's worse for Valentine's day. Especially for college-aged sons when anything too lovey-dovey would be embarrassing for them.  I picked up a recent release from Waffle Flower - the Outline Love Combo which includes the Outline Love stamps, Outline Love die and the Outline Love Word die.  I loved their graphic look plus there's a "from mom and dad" stamp!

AAA From Mom  & Dad

There are dozens of fabulous ideas out there for this set.  I loved Channin's use of the dies where she didn't use the fill-in pieces so I started with that look.

Obviously I didn't do the fabulous tie-dye background that Channin did.  I was inspired by the current challenge at AAA Cards: Up to One Third + optional twist Hearts.  I only have one little heart on this card - but it carries lots of love!!

Stamps: Waffle Flower Outline Love
Dies: Waffle Flower Outline Love Word die
Paper: Echo Park Note to Self 6x6
