Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Funny that I don't have a Valentine's card for you today as I posted all the ones I've made already in the past few weeks. It was my brother's birthday a few weeks ago and I made this masculine card for him:

I have an old retired Stampin' Up! background stamp that I didn't get to use a lot way back when. I have a whole row of retired background stamps that sit at the very top of a shelf of mine that I will never get rid of and this one was crying out to be used. This one was called the "Old World Map" from 1998. I started stamping in 1997. Seems like so long ago and yet it NEVER gets old!

I sponged the edges of my Very Vanilla Cardstock layers:

And I thought the burlap ribbon was perfect for a masculine card. What do you think?
