Another Challenge-Whachadoin' want to play?

Challenge #22

How about making a card for someone you love! This does not necessarily have to be a
Valentine but just a I love you card. The challenge is that the card must NOT be a
regular 5 ½ by 4 ¼ card. It must be different in some way, shape, fold, size your
Have fun with this one. I can't wait to see the DT creations--and YOURS too!

Come on over and play along. You can use whatever stamps you want (we would love for you to use are but it is not a requirement of the challenges) Be sure to leave us a comment though so we can come on over and check it out! Please use the keyword SUINKWWC22 when posting online.

Here is my card, it is 6 1/4 by 4 1/4. I am really pretty happy with how it turned out although I had to re-do it because as I was doing the last thing on the front I knocked over my coffee and it spilled all over it so I had to start all over! I almost did something else and then thought -- hmm it should be easier now that the whole layout and dimensions are done so I went for it. Here is the front of the card. (It is not the best picture, the lighter colors are a bit washed out)

And this is what it looks like when it is open.

I used an old Colluzle template for the heart. It was really a fun card. Don't you think?

Stamps: Will You Be My Valentine
Paper: Real Red and Rose Red, misc scrap dp, whisper white
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Sizzix Button, Colluzle heart template, Cuttlebug mini hearts, ribbon, white gel pen, copics, rub on for inside sentiments. Nestabilities, craft knife and mat

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

What a cute and clever card--I adore how you used the heart within the card! Glad you decided to make another to share---I've spilled more things on my craft table than I should ever admit, lol!
