Monster Love

The first batch of Valentines I made for the St. Jude Card Drive was very girly and I wanted to make sure I had some “guy” cards. I figured boys love monsters ( mine did when he was younger) so why not show them some Monster Love?

I didn’t have any monster stamps so I found a graphic in my PrintShop program. He was cute but I wanted to “Valentine him up” so the poor guy got enhanced with some lovely red lips ( the better to smooch you with my dear) and even though we know his heart is in there, I added one that everyone could see.
I wanted some more dimension so I went over the heart with red Stickles, and over the eyes with black.
Also created the sentiment in PrintShop.

Those definitely look boy-friendly! :) My brothers got monster cards for their birthday and I think also Valentine's Day when they were younger so I know what you mean.
