Nuts about you
My hubby and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary last week and this is the card I made for him. We are both Ohio State grads/fans and it's also where we met, so I knew my Ohio State die cuts would be perfect for his card. I was thinking about sentiments and then it hit me that "nuts about you" would be perfect with the Buckeyes (they are nuts, but you can't eat them - they're poisonous!). Guy cards can be challenging but I just stuck to some manly colors along with the required scarlet and grey. And... I guess it worked because he loved it! He even noticed the bits of sanding I did around the "O" to reveal the white core. It was tricky to get in the small spots with a basic sanding block, so I have a Precision File set (Basic Grey) on order - for the next time I need to sand tight spots!
