Hunk of Burnin' Love Valentine

Hello friends!  Have you been by the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog yet today??? My Design Team sister Laurie is hosting the most awesome Cricut challenge ever this week!  In honor of Elvis' birthday, Laurie has challenged us to create an Elvis related project - something about Elvis or a project that represents an Elvis song title.  I made this Valentine - Hunk of Burnin' Love!!

Crazy as it seems, I used four Cricut cartridges to create this card:  Block Party, From My Kitchen, Wedding, and Life's A Party.  Hubby saw the card already and thought the flames were very cute!

There are two layers of hearts, both cut using the Wedding cartridge, the scallop rear heart and the regular hearts on top.  The regular hearts are welded at the top and open to reveal the inside of the card.  

The BBQ-ing man is from the Block Party cartridge, while his grill was cut using From My Kitchen.  The flames were cut using Life's A Party.  

I added the sentiment using the text element in Design Space and a pen in my Cricut Explore.   The card was finished with penned dashes and dots.  

I think Laurie's challenge is so fun.  I hope that you will join us this week at Bitten By the Bug 2 and create your own Elvis song inspired project!!
