With love to your Valentine!

Good morning crafty friends! How are you on this dark and gloomy Winter day? At least, here in East Tennessee it is. ick! But, we're here to change all that and bring you some LOOOOOOOOOVE! :-D The Crafty Collaborations Crew have a Valentine's Day Blog Hop for you! It's about that time and we wanna make sure you have plenty of inspiration to create a special Valentine for your special Valentine!

Here we go!

This fancy fold is called a Diagonal Expanded Gatefold Card. One of my girls demonstrated this fold at a class and I fell in love with it! 

I did modify my measurements just a touch, because I wanted my folded card to be 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", but this card base is TWO pieces of 4 1/4" x 10" (scored at 5 1/2").  Then, I made my diagonal folds for each of the flaps. 

I've used Sweet Sorbet and Mint Macaron Cardstocks for layers and then that absolutely adorable Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper to dress it all up!

I just LOVE that two step stamped heart! It's done in Petal Pink and Sweet Sorbet inks. On the inside it says Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you like my fancy fold card! I really enjoyed making it.  I'll bet the recipient is gonna like it too! :-)
