Trifold Valentines Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a trifold Globe shape Valentines card featuring the Pinpoint Burst heart die.  Did you know you can heat foil any dies!  The fold will stick where the metal touches the paper.  Memory Box has a lot of different dies that cut or emboss on the paper.  Look through your stash and see what you can heat foil.  Just follow the same instructions as regular folding. 


Card base:

Die cut the largest die from the Nested Globe die set 5 times from heavy weight card stock. For the windows take 1 Globe die cut and die cut the 4th largest die in the center.  Remove the center, leaving the die in place.  Take the next Globe die cut and temporary tape it to the front panel die cut.  Repeat the process for the next 2 die cut.  Leaving 1 die cut as is. for the back panel.  Next stencil the window panels with the Leafy Row stencil and Fresh Ink Pink Lemonade ink.  I used a stencil blending brush heavy for the leafs and then remove the stencil.  Lightly blend with the same ink over all the panels, including the back panel. .  To create a hinge for the panels cut 2 strips of white card stock to 3" x 1/2".  Next score down the center at 1/4". 


Window centers:

Die cut the Willow Globe from a light pink paper from the Berry Red pad and from vellum.  Glue together along the outside rim.  Do NOT glue the leaves together.  Die cut the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a red paper from Berry Red pad.  Die cut the heart dies from the Heart Streamer Globe die set from a shiny gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  Glue the hearts to the streamers, front and back.  


Foiled Heart:

Gold heat foil the Pinpoint Burst Heart from a dark red paper from the Berry Red pad. secure the die to the foil and paper.It is the same process as you would a normal foil plate.  I used a Gemini Jr foil machine and it has a heat and cut plate option.  If your foil machine does not just heat foil the heart first then run through as a regular die cut.



Stamp Happy Valentine's Day from the Big and Little Valentines clear stamp set .on white card stock using Fresh Ink Tomato Red. Trim down to small strips.



Take 2 window panels for the front and glue in the Willow Globe die cuts into the backside of the window.  Take 1 of the hinges and add glue to 1 side of the score line and place on the left side of  inside of the back window panel for the front..  Make sure the hinge faces down with the hinge folding towards the back.  Glue on the top of the window panel.  Repeat this process for the inner fold window panel but put the hinge on the left side of the panel.  One the back full panel adhere the foiled heart.  Adhere Happy to top of the heart and Valentine's Day to the bottom.  Adhere the inside panel first to the left side of the back of the base panel, lining up the bottoms. Let glue dry and then fold the panel open and closed a few times.  Glue the front panel hinge to the left side, back of the back panel.  Let glue dry and open and close a few times.
