Framed Heart Valentine by Laura

Simple and sweet, this Valentine would
make anyone's Valentine's Day special!

The base is 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" white cardstock
that has been inked with Tim Holtz Victorian
Velvet Distress Ink and then Vintage Photo on
top of that. The center of the "frame" is cut
from white cardstock using Spellbinders Classic
Oval Small, and I inked it with Victorian Velvet
while it was still in the die.  I used Ranger 
Distress Stickles in Antique Bronze around the 
edge, and set it aside to dry.  The outer part 
is cut using Classic Scallop Oval Small cut from
kraft cardstock, and the edges inked with Vintage
Photo Distress Ink. The heart is from the Stampers
Anonymous "Love Struck" set, and it's stamped on kraft
in Victorian Velvet.  I cut around it, distressed the
edges, and added a little Vintage Photo ink to "pop"
the distressing.  The I applied a layer of Rock Candy
Distress Stickles to the heart....I used a heat gun
to dry it quickly.  I used some seam binding tape from
my stash to accent the "frame", then layered on the 
frame and used foam tape under the heart to give it
dimension.  Some little roses and bling from my stash
finish it off.  

More Valentine goodies to come....make sure you keep
checking the blog every day!!
