Valentine's Day Easel Box Card for Men

I am still in stick pin making mode. This time I experimented by using a small bracelet chain and attaching it to the heart key. The patterned paper is from a pad by MAMBI. Dies used are spellbinders ornamental tags 1 and spellbinders lace heart. I used ' vintage photo' to distress the edges. The love heart stamp is a freebie from a magazine. I stamped it in versamark ckalk ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment stamp' live, laugh, love' is from Wplus9. I so wanted to use ' You hold the key to my heart' somewhere on my card. But I didn't have this stamp. So I made a teeny tiny book and wrote this phrase on its first page. Then I put the book in a small envelope and put it in the drawer.

Lulupu : Oh So Love-ly ( I have to confess that this time I forgot that the twist was to use patterned paper. I was in the midway of the project when the tubelight swtiched on. I had to abandone that project and then I started this one. Me and my forgetfulness :)
