See How to Make a Layers of Hearts for Valentines

Make a layered dimensional love frame using a 5 x 7 deep picture frame and a bold red colored heart painted with All-Purpose Ink Poppy Red. This project centers around a simple concept—create layers of hearts and floating like sense with a background that allows light to pass through too. The Vertigo sheets create a blur effect without dominating the picture. The bold red heart stands out from all decorations used, enhancing the purpose of the frame.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Make the hearts with a heart shaped mold and paper clay. After you cast the heart and let dry fully, color with the All-Purpose in Ink Poppy Red color. All-Purpose Ink works beautifully on all types of surfaces such as fabric and wood, so it is a natural fit for the paper clay.

Step 2

Cut a 2 ½ x 7-inch long piece of the white cardstock and fold in a border about ½ inches on the short edges. Adjust the folding to the inner dimension of your frame if different.

Step 3

Stamp the Valentine theme words from the stamp set with the VersaFine Clair Nocturne.

Step 4

Die cut Vertigo sheets in heart shapes (or cut with scissors).

Step 5

Place Tear It! Tape on the folded edges of the cardstock piece at the non-stamped side.

Step 6

Set the cardstock piece in the frame with the Tear It! Tape previously placed on the top and bottom sides of the frame.

Step 7

Glue the red heart in place as shown in the photo above.

Step 8

Twist pieces of wire (as springs) to use holders for the Vertigo hearts.

Step 9

Glue on the side to the inner bottom of the frame and place the Vertigo heart.

Step 10

Stamp the cupid design with the VersaFine Clair Nocturne on a piece of Vertigo sheet and set it on a heart inside the frame.
