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
