I made this with DH in mind. 🙂 My #1 Valentine…all year long.
I used this for an entry in a Cricut contest, but honestly, this looks like an unfinished work to me. It’s well designed, but the fact is that the flowers in the hand of the girl aren’t defined and the whole thing lacks the “pop” necessary to be a contender. It was a good idea, but I just didn’t “bring it”.
I do love the idea and the composition though! And…the sweetest thing…DH was so supportive of my contest entry. He even ran out in the last 15 minutes before the entry was due to get me fresh roses because the ones I had were looking tired. 🙂
I used the Destinations cartridge for the gazebo. The Sweethearts cartridge was used for the couple, flowers (in hand), bows, banner and bells. Home Decor for the “love”. I used my Gypsy to weld four of these scenes together and I backed them with white Cricut cardstock. I definitely had to use my 12×24 mat for this. Every corner was scored with a bone folder before folding. I used a square vase that I found at Hobby Lobby. Roses…courtesy of my #1 fan…DH. 😉
