Guest Designer for Cutting Up With Class!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I'm so excited to be a guest designer today for my friend Jani of Paper Compulsions for her challenge blog, Cutting Up With Class! CUWC is a new challenge blog that uses SVGs for the weekly challenges every Tuesday. If you haven't already, please stop by and check out her awesome blog!
For my project today, I wanted to make something for my Mom and Dad's upcoming anniversary on the 14th. So, in their honor, I made this Love wall hanging.
I first cut the base in cardboard from Elegant Edges. I manipulated the frame with my Gypsy to stretch it out and thin the height so it was the right size for the letters. I cut the letters out at 3" from Base Camp using My Mind's Eye Paper. The white sparkly background paper is from Fancy Pants and the outer frame is from DCWV The Immortal Stack. I cut the frame twice and pieced the frame together.
I wanted to give the letters some depth, so I printed out several copies of the letter shadows and attached foam tape between each layer. I also varied the dimension using different amounts of tape on each letter. I attached the outer frame with foam as well.
I stamped "wind beneath my wings" from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set on the L. Click HERE to purchase your own set of these awesome stamps! I topped it off with some Hobby Lobby ribbon and some gems and added a hanger to the back.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you will visit Jani of Paper Compulsions for her challenge blog,  Cutting Up With Class! Thanks again Jani for having me!!
