It's a man thing - romance!

Romantic cards for men - difficult aren't they?! Steampunk is popular but if my hubby says something complimentary about one of my makes it's almost always something clean and simple so busy cogs and chains aren't ideal when I'm creating especially for him.

The shapes in the Minis range are a perfect scale and weight for card making and add some textural interest to a clean and simple design.

I gave the key here a simple treatment by colouring it silver, adding just a tiny dusting of black embossing powder for some "corrosion" detail and than paired it with a stamped sentiment and a classic black/white/splash of red colour scheme.

There are several designs in the keys minis pack so you can go simple like this or add lots to a more vintage or steampunk design as Carol did on Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect for a man card. The red gem really works (and I'm not really a fan of stick on gems as a rule). And the 'corrode' key is great.
