What we're daring you to do this month is to make a card or project with a heart, whether it's for the one you love, a sweet Valentine or a lunch note for a child. Let's get smitten!
Instead of going the traditional Valentine red/pink/white route (which I do love, by the way), I decided to combine my love of wintry objects with my hearts, i.e. snowflakes....
To make those crazy hearts, I cut out a bunch of Jotted Heart dies, Wavy Hearts and Heart Quartet dies. I then inked up the inside of a Snowflake embossing folder with some Cocoa ink and ran it through my Big Shot. The ink gives the designs a nice outlined appearance. I coupled those hearts with some wood veneer snowflakes....the big one is an ornament that I purchased at Michael's and the smaller ones I got from TJ Maxx...(you know all that cool stuff to look at while waiting on line?). The sentiment was pieced together from Verve's Merry Wishes set. All patterned papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics collection. Lastly, a few strategic pearls finishes it off.
Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, January 22nd. Entries must be posted 1/3 or later, include at least one Verve product, include a heart, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 1/22/14.
