First of all the card:
I have created a fancy shaped card using silhouette and matted and layered in the same shape and created a strip going across it along with a fancy shape with the image on. The image is a mo manning one called stole my heart which I think is perfect for a male card as its not too gushy. I then coloured him in with my promarkers. I have also stamped the blue layer of card with a twinkle inkpad which leaves a pearlescent watermark, the stamp I used was a free stamp that I had with a craft Stamper magazine (last year I think).
I have also matted and layered the same colours on the inside (sorry no pictures) and put a nice little verse that I printed out.
For the box I have used a silhouette design which is a scallop box, I have cut it in the colour to match the card however the white part on the box is a centura pearlescent card from cupcake crafting.
I have then used my cameo again to cut the LOVE phrase from the matching pearlescent card, this cutting file was from birds designs (highly recommend this site to everyone that has a cutting machine, her designs are all fantastic).
I also stamped the sides of the lid with the pearlescent inkpad again with a small heart.

Well thanks for looking, I'm off to work out what we're going to have for dinner as I have neglected it while crafting! :)
