Love and Marriage
I've got the old Frank Sinatra classic playing loops in my head right now, don't you? :)
We're back again tonight with projects using one of PTI's Valentine's Day offerings--Love and Marriage. Truly a versatile set. Covers all the "love" holidays and occasions. As well as offers up a tree graphic that can be used for just about anything. What more could you ask for?
I wanted to focus on creating a project that you could slip in your husband's briefcase. Let's make it all prim and proper on the front and leave room on the back for something a little racy (wink, wink). It's got to be suitably masculine, thus the colors of Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, and Pure Poppy and the use of that tree graphic..
I busted out my calendar page die because when trimmed, the tree image fits nicely inside the notches. Granted, I could put notches where ever I feel like, but it's nice sometimes not to have to do the work. I used Journaling Lines as a background strip. Nice how the dots on the lines coordinate with the dotted frame of the tree.
Love and Marriage includes two itty bitty graphic sayings within a rectangle. They make a great banner.
And because my note was looking more and more like a postcard, I slapped on some postage and a cancellation stamp (from the set). Got to make it real love mail, right?
Hope I've tempted you. It's really a great set to own for lots of different occasions. Pop on by the other PTI blogs to see what everybody has been up to--there's a great famous couples background stamp that I'm sure is going to get tons of gorgeous play with this feature.
