Hi Everyone! I'm so enjoying my reorganized craft room! It's my guest bedroom that, for the moment, no longer has a bed LOL! Jeff and I took the bed out last night.I plan to get a chair with a hide-a-way bed but I better get it soon or some Stampin' UP! item will take its spot šŸ˜‰

Here's a card layout I've been itching to try and it's so fun to make. P1050318 Here's a picture of how it looks laying flat.

To make:
With 6" x 12" whisper white ( cut 12×12 in half), trim at an angle. I marked 2" down along one side as a guide. Score at 4" and at 8". Make a Z fold.

Punch a variety of heart shapes. The card uses 'mirror' images so punch 2 of each. Adhere to the front  panel of your card three hearts. For each panel of the Z, I adhered the outer images first. Test to make sure they do not overlap the fold or score line. Flip card over and adhere the two mirror outer heart punches. Adhere middle heart on panel, both sides.  Continue same thing with the other two panels. * Tip – use Dotto 103305 or adhere 'lightly' so you can reposition your images if needed.

The effect is a card that can be displayed open and looks pretty from the back too! Don't you just love how it looks like a cascade of hearts!
Now we decorate! For the outer panels, punch a scallop trim border with both 4" x 1"  Pretty in Pink. Adhere to the back of the DP and adhere to card.
Stamp flamingo image on Pretty in Pink and layer with Read Red. Adhere with a Dimentional foam dot. 104430. Stamp Love image on last panel.
For the middle panel, punch scallop trim on both sides of the 4"x3" piece of Pretty in Pink. Adhere DP down the middle. Stamp heart reeds three time at the bottom.
With Signo Gel Pen 105021, make doodle dots on top to scallop trim.
Option to tie with Real Red Satin Ribbon. I think it makes the card look like a little present. Then the recipient of the card can display it on a counter top or stand.

P1050320 P1050321 This card will work for any size and you can angle trim it to whatever slope you want. I hope you enjoy giving this layout a try. I think it took me longer to type instructions than it did to make the card šŸ™‚ I can't wait to try it with flowers!

Happy Crafting! ~ Dee
