You can Read my Heart

You know how some people just can?

Well this is more from my Nancy Drew book from the very first post. I'm still having a great time with the pages from that book.

To make this 3D heart, I just used a punch to punch out a bunch of hearts. I folded them carefully in half. It's very important to have the edges lined up to get a nice crisp and even look.

While each heart is folded, adhere it to the next folded heart until you have a 3D heart. You can make it as full or as spare as you want - just use more or fewer hearts.

When you're done, adhere the two edges to your card.

I used more of the pages for the background, and I also punched a teeny orange heart for the very center heart.

I thought that if there was someone reading someone's heart, then there really needed to be two. :)

The background paper is Stampin' Up!'s Urban Oasis, and the base is Tangerine Tango. The greeting is in Tangerine Tango from Best Yet.

Nice alternative to all the pink, yes?

Love this! What a brilliant idea to make a little heart book. Thank you SO much for the eye-candy & inspiration. (Love your wit-filled writing too!) :O)
