First I took a plain $1 frame from Michael's and used Mod Podge to glue this wood looking paper from DCWV The "Green Stack". With an X-acto knife I cut out the edges and inside, distressed the edges with Ranger Ink "Old Paper" and Stampin' Up "Melon Mambo". I painted the sided with brown acrylic paint and let dry.
I took a wooden smaller heart (that can be found at Michael's in sets of 3 for $1) , painted the front and inside with Making Memories "Lipstick", then the side edges with brown paint. I cut out another smaller heart using Heidi Grace paper and placed inside the small wooden heart.
I added rhinestones around the small wooden heart after I tried making polka dot brown painted dots and failed. The rhinestones are a lot prettier and work better with the complete frame. (you'll see below)
This pink trim was purchased at a local scrapbook store here in Florida, (which I SOOO need to go back and get more!!)
I used a variety of embellishments, including Recollections butterfly and flowers. (I also need to go back for more of those, LOVE them!!)
I was so excited about the finished product that I gave it to my husband 2 weeks before Valentine's Day. I couldn't wait! LOL - And BTW, he loved it!!
Thanks for watching.
