Dazzling and Masculine

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!

The countdown is on to Valentine's Day and I have another masculine card for the Add a Little Dazzle Wednesday Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge, Dark Chocolate and Scarlet Red.

Here is your inspiration photo~

I struggled with this one, mainly due to lack of MOJO, but once I decided to keep it simple, it came together quickly.  I used my PTI Phrase Play #1 mini stamp set and coordinating die.  The 'You' is die cut in Dark Chocolate Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal and the hearts and words 'are my' are die cut in Scarlet Red Craft Metal.  The dull finish of the Dark Chocolate metal keeps it masculine and the shine of the Scarlet Red metal is just enough to give it that special something.
My background panel is the Hardwood Stamp from SU, stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake cs.  The tag is also cut from Crumb Cake cs and the craft metal words were placed using the Inlaid Die Technique.  Since my tag is up on dimensionals, I had to keep he words from falling out the back, so I taped them in place with Scor-Tape on the back side of the tag to secure them.
A bit of Hemptique twine and the shiny Scarlet Red hearts ( die cut with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps dies) finish off the card.
