'Love is in the Air' Photo Frame

This photo frame is for the owner of the cat in the photo.  What, you say you can't see the cat? That's because she is curled up in a ball...her smiling face is on the left.  The reason 'Venus' (yes, that is really her name) is smiling contentedly in her sleep is because she was adopted from a shelter and now lives the life of a queen.  I think Venus (goddess of love) is the perfect subject for my faux leather photo frame with a Stampendous image of Fluffles and the words "Love is in the air".  The entire frame including the back brace only used one sheet of Tim Holtz Kraft Core 12x12 card stock.  The frame was made by folding an 11 x 8 piece of card stock and cutting 1/2" tabs on three sides. Next the entire piece was embossed in a Sizzix Valentine folder and a heart-shaped opening was cut out with a Spellbinder thin die. The surface of the frame was lightly sanded to bring our the embossed design.  The Fluffles image and words were stamped on white card stock, colored, embellished with Stickles and Fun Flock, and cut out with a die. Finally the back braces (two taped together for more strength) were cut using the Tim Holtz small easel die. Merikan Double stick tape was used to close the frame (after the photo was inserted) and attach the easel frame support. I love how this frame turned out because it is sort of shabby chic which is what life becomes after you welcome a pet into your home.  Please adopt a pet'll save a life and receive lots of love in return.
