Instead of hanging a seasonal banner across the front of our fireplace,
I decided to create a "valance decor" for Valentine's Day this year.
I started with the pennant bases cut from black cardstock,
and then used Paper Studio patterned papers in spring floral designs
for some of the pennant shapes and for all the punched circles behind the letters.
Patterned papers were layered on top of lacey doilies.
I used the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the I LOVE YOU letters,
then embellished each with Opaque Pearls.
We'll most likely leave this hanging until Spring, and then
I look forward to hanging lighter weight and lighter colored draperies too.
It's been a long winter -- Spring can't come soon enough!
