Valentine’s Day Decor

     So Valentine’s Day is coming up soon and I wanted to make some fun décor.  I made this with my Cricut and several cartridges.  I used the new and fabulous Victorian Romance, Fancy Frames, Martha Stewart Everyday Cakes, and CTMH Art Philosophy cartridges.  I cut all the base pieces of the frame with a light weight chipboard.  I covered the frame part with a piece of K&Co. patterned paper.  I used the same (double sided) paper to make the flowers from the CTMH AP cartridge and added a pearl in the middle.   I also added some gold smooch ink to the edges of the flowers.   I wrapped the frame with some gold twine and inked the edges with red rose Cat’s eye ink. 

     I wrapped the frame holder with gold twine.  I sponged it with ink and sprayed it with glimmer mist.  I designed the frame holder on my Gypsy and decided to leave out all the tiny pieces on this design to make it easier to cut.  I added some ribbon and another flower to the front.  The “Be Mine”  is from the Martha Stewart cart.  I added gems to all the corners.

The adorable little clown is from the new Victorian Romance cart.  I cut it at 2 inches and it cut great!  I added craft plastic to the frame to make it more real.  I also added a back layer and put pop dots between the front and back layer for dimension.  Thanks for looking!
