I've enjoyed making these signs for wedding gifts. This is one I was commissioned to do with this cool red frame. It proved to be a little bit more challenging because of the length and the narrowness. I took a different direction than usual. Overall, I think I like it.
Here is how I joined the paper together and a better glimpse of the texture.
I used Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) for cutting the name and a combination of Photoshop and Make the Cut (MTC) for the hearts. All images were then cut on my Cricut. The background is textured using the Swiss Dots folder with the Cuttlebug and the Flourish stencil from Spellbinders.
Here is an original name plaque.
