Be Mine

The site has published it’s second scrapping challenge, and it’s all about love! For Valentine’s day, the challenge was to create a paper craft project, relating to the subject of “love”. There were three rules, as it was a 1-2-3 challenge: 1 ribbon, 2 hearts, 3 blings / pearls.

I wanted to create a card that tells a story, something that is a little bit touching. I came up with the idea of a little girl holding tight to a heart shaped balloon, fighting against the wind in front of a cold, urban background. I thought my first trial was nice but there was something melancholic about it. Not really suitable for this challenge. Sooo… I swapped the gray papers for chocolate brown and craft, and the gloomy patterned paper for these fun Echo-Park “Summertime collection” papers.

I made the outside of the card quite clean, using the “required” pearls and a thin blue ribbon. I made one heart out of craft and placed it on the craft background, to get a tone-on-tone effect (I really wanted it to be soft and delicate). The second heart is a part of the inner pop up. The little girl was the tricky part- I drew her silhouette on white card stock and gently cut her out with a sharp craft knife.

I love how it came out, I think it tells a little something about me.

Happy Valentine’s day everybody!


PS – Ari, would you be my Valentine? ๐Ÿ˜‰
