Love Swans Valentine POP!

Did you know today is Kris Breach's birthday?!  Well, it is!!  She is the designer of the digital images at Imagine That, and a dear friend of mine.  If you have a little time yet this evening, and you are here on line, please stop by and wish her a happy birthday either at her blog or the Imagine That blog.  I am sure she will appreciate it! :)

I was blog hopping this afternoon and found this beautiful pop-up box card by Karon (another guest designer at Imagine That), and I just had to find the tutorial and give it a try.  Mine is a little basic, as I didn't use a lot of layers, but after you see all the love that went into Karon's pop-up box card, You will just want to give it a try too!  I sure did!

So ... after work I hurried up found that tutorial from SplitcoastStampers and gave it a whirl.  Here's what I came up with using the Love Swans digi and some Bella papers (saved from Stampin' Up many moons ago).  I just love those papers and hate to use them all up.  :(

This is a photo of the entire card with many punched out hearts
and even some stuck up on acetate to jiggle a bit when you open it.

This is what it will look like when I close it up and put it in the envelope,
or should I say when hubby pulls it from the envelope.

Lastly, here is a closeup of all the sweet patterns and images that come together to make a little show of affection for my sweet hubby for Valentine's Day.  I hope he doesn't mind all of the lace and hearts ...
It's to represent love and affection, so ... he will just have to put up with the mushiness, right?! :D  lol

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, and I hope your
sweetheart gets you a little "mushiness" for Valentine's Day too.  xoxo

P.S. - I will also be submitting this card to the terrific challenge #40 at CardMania - Love is All Around

Inky Hugs,

Oh wow, wow, WOW Kelly!! LOVE this with those swans!! I'm so intrigued and must make one soon myself. They add so much "POP" and it's hard to believe they fold flat too! Awesome job. Thank you so much for using my swans for your try!! May I post this tomorrow for my special Valentine's post? :) xxKris
