Be Mine Valentine

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

Today is the last day of the Memory Box Blitz---what a great week of gorgeous cards featuring the new 2015 Collection!  Donna will be here this afternoon with an inspiring card so be sure to come back for the Blitz Finale.   I've enjoyed seeing everyone's creativity and I hope you have too.  

I love Valentine's Day--My husband proposed to me on this special day --a mere 37 years ago.   Today I'm sharing a Valentine card with a fun fold.  When fully open, there are three panels...take a look!

Be Mine Valentine frontThe heart panel on the front has a right-side fold which is attached to the inside of the card.  I layered the Vidalia Heart onto the largest solid heart in the Glorious Hearts die set.  Beneath the heart I tucked in 2 sprigs of Botanical Stems, distressed on the edges with a darker shade of green ink.  For a little sparkle, I added sequins, pearls and a little silver coiled wire.  

Be Mine Opening

Once the heart panel swings open, you can see the complete Bengal Background die on the front which I die cut in grey metallic paper then adhered to a dark grey note card.  I love the tone-on-tone look and the Bengal Background was too pretty to cover up.Be Mine Open

 Now you can see the inside of the card which is really three panels.  The Be Mine letters are from the Alphabet Soup die set and the heart is from the Heart Waterfall  die.  It has many sizes and shapes of hearts--perfect for layering.Be Mine Double Heart

 On the right hand panel I die cut the Love Connection hearts in black, white and deep fuschia.  On the black layer I dabbed  silver leafing ink randomly to give it a distressed look, then pieced the other two colors into place.  I also added a few hearts from the Heart Waterfall die along with some silver sequins.
