I'm Cuckoo For You Valentine (Vintage Style)

Today's offering is a fun vintage style Valentine design that was pretty easy to create.

Thank you for visiting my blog and a big thanks for those who take the time to leave a comment or join as a follower.  I always try to hop over to those that have blogs to return the favor.

I started by die cutting the Brick House with brown card stock, adding a red roof trim, two maple leaves, a blue bird and the fun heart lock & key.  The clock face is just and image I downloaded off the web. To create the scalloped design under the clock I used the EK Success Real Estate punch.  For the weights I took the Acorn  die and cut the piece in half and then just shaped two acorn designs and added some Viva Decor gold to them.  To create the hearts I used the two smallest pieces from each set and die cut with glitter card stock then layered them.  For the Fancy Tag I ran red card stock through the printer to create the text and then die cut.
