Today’s valentine is a take off on the tri fold card but instead of flaps that overlap you have hearts. When it is closed the hearts connect and look like they are cascading down the card.
The card base is 8”x5.25” scored at 2” and 6”. You could place this on a 1/4 sheet of card stock for a more finished look. The hearts are cut from the Hearts Collection Framelits Die. I used the third smallest heart and dry embossed it with Elegant Bouquet Folder.
The placing of the hearts gets a bit tricky. With the the card closed, the bottom heart is flush with the bottom of the card and the point is about 2 1/8” from the left side of the card and adhered to the left fold. The top heart will be the same distance to the left as the bottom. The distance between the top and bottom heart tips is about 3 3/8”. The top heart is also adhered onto the left fold. The middle heart is placed approximately 1 9/16” from the left side and 1 9/16” from the bottom of the card. The middle heart is adhered to the right fold. If my measurements don’t work exactly for you just play around with their placement until you get the hearts to interlock. I adhered them with Tombow. The hearts easily interlock and open without tearing or coming off.
Here it is unfolded with plenty of room to put another sentiment and note.
This card fits perfectly into our medium sized envelopes.
