Wood Love Letters

Today’s inspiration was Valentine’s day.  I decided to try my hand at cutting out a new font style.  I ended up using the Script MT Bold font because I like that the “O” was open at the top and I wouldn’t have to use my other saw to cut out the center.  The letters are also a little wider than some which is good for preventing the wood from breaking.

I painted the letters a soft pink then dabbed on a darker pink for a distressed look.  I used the same paper that I used in my previous post of the heart, as well as another Valentine’s paper which has words relating to the holiday all over it.  I ended up distressing the outer edges of all the letters with brown ink as well.

To finish the letters off I added some pink and white ribbon, black and pink flowers, and pink and black buttons and gems.  I wish I would have had some more interesting ribbon to use, but this was a last minute decision so I just made do with what I had on hand.  In the end I’m still happy with the result.  It’ll have a place on my mantle or at my front door until Valentine’s day!  Maybe I’ll add a heart decoration to put beside it as well :).
