Love is in the air...?

tri-fold cards   

Hello my friends!!! Sorry i have been absent for so long!  I have been trying to keep busy, and apparently it has worked;) !  In doing so I have neglected my blogging though!  Of course I have plenty of thoughts to share with you but for today I will keep it to one and then have more to blog about in a few days!! Good plan, right?  we will see how I follow through with my thoughts...

Anyway on to my cards...   This is a trifold card I crated after seeing a similar one done by a SU! demo.  I always kind of glance at others cards, throw a thought into the right lobe and figure I'll get back to it later.  Then I just kind of pull that thought out and wing it  =)  when I'm playing with my stamps.  This card I created by taking a piece of whisper white CS, and cutting it at 5 1/4" x 12".  I make it a little smaller than the actual  5 1/2" of my usual card choose size.  This is so that my hearts or whatever I choose to put on my card can hang over the edge.  I score the 12" side at 4" and 8",this creates equal folds.  I cut on an angle from 2 1/2" to the corner of the 5 1/4" creating a "hill effect".  I then punched along the edge with our scallop edge punch. You can do so many things with this card-thoughts of balloons,etc! You will need two of each color- full sized heart (punch).  I start by adhering 1 to the front of the card in all three colors.  Here I used rich razzleberry textured cs,pear pizzaz(stamped in garden green with the image from from So Shelli's "Charming" stamp set-LOVE THIS ONE!!)and tempting turquoise also stamped with the words in turquoise, from the same stamp set.
Attach the top heart first,then I move to the bottom and finally the center(so it is spaced in-between). I then attach the other hearts to the back,making sure to match up.  Then I stamped the sentiments from either the "FYI" stamp set or "things I love" stamp set.  You can add a ribbon to tie it all together if you like(I used our razzleberry grosgrain).

Hope you enjoy this one!
