Valentines Present For Hubby

Made based on the project at Love Art Collage...some of the images came via the http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/ (thank you), but I took bits from cards I have given to him over the years. I found a special little note in one card so I made a little vellum pocket on the front of one frame. I had sm. love stack which had alphabet stickers.  I found the need to apply some glossy accents to the letters...I added that to the front of the 2nd frame which showcases one of my favorite cards. I distressed edges and used distress inks ton most of the pieces. Also I cut apart a couple lg. paper dollie hearts. At bottom frame I attached a cherub and heart charm. To finish it off I had to add a bow with the red paisley ribbon. I did not think he would mind me using the cards He didn't! I think he really liked it maybe even loved it.  It is nice idea to be able to see some of the sentiments and words written and the cards instead of being tucked away in a box.

I have saved every card since was about 10 or 11, so I have lots of material. I thought I would scan some of them.

I should add that you might want to work on one frame at a time. I got confused in trying to work them all and with the bottom frame there are number of image upside down...in some collage it might be just the thing to but I am not so sure with this one.
