Hello everyone! I love this time of year, new beginnings, keeping warm by the fire, and sending love and warmth with Valentines! The new line, Amore, is a romantic collection that makes it easy to create beautiful handmade Valentines!
I started by cutting papers from the Amore 6×6 Paper Pad with Designer Dies Heart Set 1. The largest heart is scalloped and the next largest heart fits perfectly inside. Mixing and matching the layers was easy with all the great papers!
To this heart, I added a fabric flower, using two of the pennants from the Amore Ephemera Pack as leaves. Circles of twine were also adhered behind the flower. At the very bottom of the heart is an “I love you” sticker from the Amore Element Sticker sheet.
On this Valentine, I added a piece of lace behind the word, “falling,” that came from the Amore Ephemera Pack. A felt heart cut with Designer Dies Heart Set 1 and layered with a button finished the look.
Designer Dies Small Doily Die Set was used to cut a piece of paper from the Amore 6×6 Paper Pack. It layered behind the hearts perfectly. A vellum leaf cut with Designer Dies Spring Flowers Die was tucked in the top too. Underneath the word “amore” from the Amore Ephemera Pack is a piece of pleated lace. To create the look, place a piece of strong adhesive along the back of the paper. Pleat the lace along the adhesive and trim once you reach the end of the paper.
After layering die cut hearts together, I added a strip of striped paper from the Amore 6×6 Paper Pack. A felt heart cut with Designer Dies Heart Set 1 and a circle of twine were adhered to the hearts. On the top another label was added from the Ephemera Pack.
