Happy House Day - A Special Non-Valentine Card

Hello, Crafty Makers!

The Hubster and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day but, because we closed on our home on February 14th, as a joke we always say Happy House Day! 
This year, the Hubster surprised me with 4 boxes of Truffles that are only available at this time of year.  I was stunned.  Two of the boxes were the ones I always want and never get because they sell out so quickly and two were a new variety that he thought I might like.  And even though he said they were not Valentine gifts, I still felt the need to make a card to thank him.  He loves it when I make cards for him.
He likes Kraft CS because he thinks it is more masculine.  I was looking through my stash of 6"x6" papers and I found this amazing steampunk paper by Bo Bunny.  I layered the printed paper onto a piece of Gold CS.  I cut my hollow heart and then decided to make it a window by applying a piece of acetate.  I double-stacked adhesive foam to give the window depth.   My original plan was to have the word "together" on the inside of the window and the word "forever" at the bottom by cherub's foot but I did not like that composition.  I like the placement on the cherub's wing.  Since this will be displayed in his man cave along with his other cards from me, I was not concerned about the cherub hanging off the edge.  In the end, The Hubster loved it and that is all that truly matters.

Thanks for Stopping By!
