A Little Bird Told Me... (front)
Barb Doemel: I printed out three different vintage cards to create my Valentine. Two were VIC IMAGES and one was from public domain. I cut out different areas from each, and placed them on finished card. I printed out Valentine heart template on dk purple and pink cardstock, in various sizes. Layered the hearts together with two-sided tape, and edged them with purple and pink fine glitter using a glue pen.
From postcard 1- printed out a 4X6 photo of the purple dressed girls, cut out the girl on the right with fine tipped scissors. Traded one leg from the left girl, to the right girl, with 2 sided tape.
From postcard 2- Cut the larger heart with hand attached to it, along with various hearts, and a flower. Placed these hearts on the girl's garland with glue dots. Placed a glitter stone onto the flower with glue dot, and attached it to the girl's hat, also with a glue dot. Then attached girl to large purple and pink heart with pop dots, to give the valentine added dimension.
From postcard 3- cut out bird, and attached on heart next to girl. Then took a long length of wire-edged ribbon, and pleat-folded it to conform around the heart. Also took a short strip of the same ribbon, and placed two-sided tape on the back of it, then folded both sides into the middle to form a hanging loop. Attached heart to pleat-folded ribbon, along with loop, using the two-sided tape. Cut one more pink cardstock heart, attach a red pipecleaner shaped into a heart with glue dots. Spread glue pen inside the pipecleaner heart, and apply purple and pink fine glitter. When dry, attach to backside of valentine with two-sided tape. This ornament can hang in a window or on a door.
