heart hugs

This was a quickie card that I made today. Still have that Valentine theme in mind.

I cut it out using the scalloped hearts Nestabilities dies by Spellbinders. The card actually opens down the center, but that's partially hidden by the overlying heart layers. The white layer was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Here you see the card opened up. I left some of the scallops intact so that I would have folds at each edge of that central heart. The stamped images are by Hero Arts. To give you an idea of the dimensions, the heart base is roughly 4 1/2" across, so it's a good size card.


  1. I've had a couple of folks email, asking how I left the "hinges" on the card. I started with a piece of red card stock 9" by 4 1/2". I scored at 2 1/4" and at 6 3/4" and folded those flaps in toward the center. That left me with a square 4 1/2" on a side. The largest scalloped heart Nestie is about 4 3/4" at the cutting edges' widest point, side to side. When I placed the card stock over the die, I positioned it so that part of the fold remained inside the cutting edges of the die on each side. That leaves the fold uncut and makes the "hinge". I'll take some photos tomorrow, but for now that's the how-to.

    Thanks for stopping by! :-)
