Vroom for Father's Day

Ages ago I bought loads of car, motor related stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps because I knew I would use them; the thing is I kept using other stamps for those people I knew I would use all those car stamps.  Anyway I decided I needed to use at least a car stamp, the time was long overdue.

25th Anniversary Heart Shadowbox

I saw this on Etsy and it inspired me to make this frame for my BIL & SIL for their 25th Wedding Anniversary.  I really wanted either a Silver, Black or White frame.  However, I think this works.  The frame is a warm, deep brown. 

I made the hearts with a gorgeous dark red velvet paper and popped them up on dimensionals rather than trying to fold them as in the inspiration piece.

I'm hoping to make another (need to find another frame) for my own house!

Medium - Shadow box frame
Card Stock - Watercolor Cardstock, SEI Velvet paper
Miscellaneous - Printer, Martha Stewart Heart Punch
