LOVE Pop Up Card

LOVE pop up card

This pop up card was inspired by the LOVE sculpture in Philadelphia and a very fancy version at The Singing Tree.

I wanted to see what it would look like with a completely different font. I tried tipping the letter O 45° like it is on the sculpture but it looked awkward, so I left it upright.

The LOVE font is stomp zackman. The heart is from the dingbat font Sexy Rexy Smitten.
