Valentine Accordion Card/ Gypsy/ TBBM/ George

In honor of tomorrow's celebration, here is a little Valentine card with a vintage look, yet some modern applications. (sounds fancy huh?) I used George for the simple heart on the cover, and cut around it to give it a fringe and add texture. The heart topped mini tag has pearls added to it, and some scissors tied with twine. The flower is stamped twice, and I added a skittle to the center (millions of those, need to be used). On the inside, I added an accordion to give the card depth and on it I placed the heart that opens, and added little post cards. The "LOVE" stamp is stamped twice, and I fussy cut the letters to pop them. May Valentine's day be a reminder of love to you as well!!
Two ribbons, a stamped flower, fringed heart, pearls.

I tied the scissors with twine.

The heart opens to reveal the message. Leaving plenty of room on the card to write a personalized message.

Here's a close-up of the letters. I used dimensional adhesive to pop those.

The little post cards reminded me of a"desk" scene. 

The small pink heart in the center is also heat embossed, and has a bit of glimmer to it.  I also added pink twine to the larger heart, completed with a bow.

Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
