Remember my post from one week ago, the one I entitled "Love in the Works"? http://www.paperseedlings.com/2013/01/love-in-works.html
It was what I had accomplished thus far in My digital Studio on a Valentine I was hoping to
turn into a nifty hybrid card.
Well, I stared at it and stared at it. What to do??? Finally, this is what I came up with.
Wanting to retain the nontraditional color scheme for a Valentine, I decided to keep only
the heart a traditional pink and go with the blue and white scheme on the rest of it. Loving
to cut paper -- as you already know about me -- I capitalized on the intricacy of the frame.
I could have gone even crazier with the cutting, but I thought this was just the perfect touch.
If I had trimmed out more of the frame, it would have become more blue without that luscious pop of white throughout.
I popped the frame from the embossed background to give it a bit more definition. Glitter
added to the word "love" provided a little glitz, and a few Basic Rhinestones here and there
gave it its needed bling.
At that point, I had considered it finished. But, yet, when I stood it up to really check it out,
I found it still seemed just too flat, not enough pizzazz. It was the heart. Refer back to the original MDS creation.
S o . . . I printed it out again. I cut out just the heart. I then popped it up over the original
heart with little "piles" of two Stampin' Dimensionals. There! Now the heart looked more puffy, almost as if it was beating. Corny, huh? But, isn't that what Valentines are supposed to be all about?
