And then, the snow, ice, frigid temperatures, and freezing wind imprisoned me in the house and it wasn't until today that DH could drive me to Michael's to pick up some birch wood to complete the project that had been simmering in my brain all week.
DH's favorite Elvis song is "Wooden Heart" and he is very proud of the fact that he knows every word including the bits in German. Naturally, my project is a wooden heart valentine for DH. Here it is!
I started with the skull card from Wild Card 2 and sized the card layer to 9 inches in height. I stretched the scalloped heart from Victorian Romance to fit and then added score lines to the heart layer and changed them all to 'cut.' This I duplicated several times and cut each out of a different valentine paper and my birch wood sheet. I had such fun arranging the pieces together (and now have 3 extra hearts to add to my valentine stash) like a puzzle. : )
I folded the card base to make an easel card and added the banner to hold the card in place. (E.P. sings "It was always you from the start" in the song.) It was very difficult to get the phrase on the banner and I'm not very happy with it, but oh well!
Please run over to the BBTB2 blog and see all the fun projects the DT put together. Love those blue suede shoes! Thanks for visiting with me today. Rock on! Christine : )
