My Cricut Craft Room - Theme Thursday
Today is Theme Thursday on My Cricut Craft Room. The theme for today is Valentine cut outs. I decided I would make a home decor project to display on my mantel for February. Supplies included a 8 x 10 frame, printed paper, cardstock,some lace, some pearl bling, and a ribbon flower. I used the Sweethearts cartridge to cut the heart at 7.25 inches in Bazzil Bling cardstock. I also cut the shadow the same size in a tan and pink polka dot print paper. I inked the edges of the heart's shadow with some Tim Holtz's Distress Ink. I cut the word Love and the shadow at 3.50 inches. I layered all the pieces to the heart and then added Love to it. Next, I added pearl accents and the ribbon flower for interest and dimension. I had some wide lace laying around my craft room so after cutting my patterned paper to size and adhering it to a piece of chipboard, I added the lace for the background. I also took some kraft colored cord and a pink button and wrapped and tied them to the background. I used an inexpensive frame and the end result is a new home decor item for my fireplace mantel! I love how this turned out. It looks soft and romantic just like the Valentines holiday should be!
