Altered Picture Frame

Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday so far! We have another challenge for ya this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. This week we are working with Post-It brand craft paper. It is the neatest stuff! It has adhesive on the back. You can cut it with your Cricut, emboss it, etc. Way cool! For my project, I altered a frame I picked up at the dollar store for $5!!! Can't beat that! It is a glass frame and has hearts and cute sayings all over the front in silver. I cut the cupid out of the Post-It craft paper using my SCAL software. I then embossed it using the 'Floral Fantasy' embossing folder. I decided to adhere this to the front of my frame. It makes it look like the cupid is popping out of the frame. I then cut the letter 'G' (for the first letter of my last name) out using SCAL. This font is called 'Brock Script.' I then cut out our last name, 'Gandy,' out using SCAL. This font is Times New Roman. I embossed the word 'Gandy' with the 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. I added all of these elements to some red Coredinations cardstock and slid it where the picture would normally go in the frame. I also added some black trim to the back. I got this idea from my Mom. She has been doing the cutest frames for some of her fellow teachers and I knew I wanted to try it as well. I am going to set this in our living room during the Valentine's Day holiday. Here it is:
(I hope you can tell a little about this project...had to take the pic inside due to this weather and yall know how that goes.)
