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.
Time: 1 hour
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.
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.
Stamp the Valentine theme words from the stamp set with the VersaFine Clair Nocturne.
Die cut Vertigo sheets in heart shapes (or cut with scissors).
Place Tear It! Tape on the folded edges of the cardstock piece at the non-stamped side.
Set the cardstock piece in the frame with the Tear It! Tape previously placed on the top and bottom sides of the frame.
Glue the red heart in place as shown in the photo above.
Twist pieces of wire (as springs) to use holders for the Vertigo hearts.
Glue on the side to the inner bottom of the frame and place the Vertigo heart.
Stamp the cupid design with the VersaFine Clair Nocturne on a piece of Vertigo sheet and set it on a heart inside the frame.
