Valentine POP-UP

This is the Valentine card I have created for this week's challenge over at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge blog. The idea this week was to make a one-off, original pop-up card made especially for the challenge. So... the image as shown above is my card front. The red hearts that are stuck on the front are all different levels, i.e. stuck on with DSSS, foam pads and double thickness foam pads so that they are all staggered at different levels. The background I stamped myself with two different heart stamps. The sentiment was copied and typed up from a dictionary and the ribbon was attached to finish off the card.

And this is the inside of the card... A simple pop up made with red thick paper to which my messages have been added and hearts have been stamped along the outside edges.
Hope you like my card and wish me luck in the challenge... you've still time to have a go yourself. Go for it and good luck, if you enter. If you don't want to take part, it's worth paying the blog a visit as they have some truly inspirational and fantastic cards! You can click on my link of other places I like to visit and it will take you straight there, but if you liked my cards, please visit again soon. Thanks

Fae said...

Definitely...who else???? Yes, thought I would kill two birds with one stone. Make a fabulous card for Steve (wanted it to be special this year as we didn't really have much of a Valentine's Day last year because of his illness) and also make a card I am pleased with enough to enter into the challenge. Glad you like it?
