In looking around for ideas for what to make, I found instructions to make this beautiful fold out heart; HERE at Her Creative Spirit. I was so inspired and struck by how beautiful it was, that knew I HAD to make one for my V-Day Exchange!
I used a couple of old board book pages to make it extra sturdy and lots of vintage images to make it all "Valentiney"......
Here is the inside all folded out, including an ACEO I made to slip into the little doily pocket.
To create a cohesive background throughout my valentine, I used old calender images for the front and back covers, and as backing for the hearts on either side that folded in.
As for what I recieved from MY secret admirer- Crystal Nelson; she made me a sweet little ornie featuring a cherub and a heart made with paper clay painted pink and made all sparkly with glitter- just the way I like em....
And to complete her offering, she included an assembly of sweet treats in addition to a cookie almost too beautiful to eat. (But somehow, I managed ;))
