Blank Card

In just minutes, you can have five cards completed with four pieces of card stock. I used "Doodle Heart Valentine" graphics by Laurie Furnell. They can be purchased at
1. Because the front of the card is doubled, I used 67 lb. card stock. Here is how I printed out the graphics to achieve 5 cards.

2. Cute paper in half at the 5 1/2". Then the piece on the left needs to be cut in half at the 4 1/4".

3. I used the "Love Language" embossing folder in my Cuttlebug on the front panel. I did not want the lace part of the graphic embossed, so I place the edge of the folder along the graphic line.

4. Here you can see a close up of the embossing. You can also see that I used two copies of the border layered together. It does not matter how they meet, because the medallion will cover the connection up.
5. Fold the butterfly portion of the card in half, with the butterfly inside.

6. I lined up the embossed panel and the front of the card together and trim along the second line of the border graphic with mini scallop scissors.

7. Use your favorite glue method to adhere the embossed panel to the front of the card. I love my ATG gun.
8.Make sure you line up how much of the white you want to show. Flip card over and trim the excess from the front panel along the fold. Cut out the medallions.  Add a pop dot to the back of the medallion.

9. Place the medallion on the front border. I used it to cover the junction of the border.
Here you are a completed card. I like the pattern so well I made another set that was wide instead of tall.

Fan Pop Up Card

Just had to share another version for the pop up card I made. I used Far East paper from DCWV, a purple eyelet and yarn fibers. Fan and purple stripe cover the white card stock where I put my message. It was a very quick card to make.

Sweetheart Ipod

I saw this on  I know it’s not a new idea, but I did make a GSD template for a box, instead of just wrapping the front. I also changed the Reese cups for pink caramel Kisses. Inside is a box of Sweetheart Kisses.

A pink 1/4" eyelet with re-enforced backing is perfect for the earphone connetion. A knot is too bulky, so I taped the end of white cording to the inside flap. The white cording was left over from the 4 in 1 hats I made for Christmas. Helpful Hint:Thread a bead onto the long cord.  Put a dab of hot glue holds the short cord; slid the bead over the junction. It hold the cords together and covers you hand work nicely. I also used a dab of hot glue to attach the cord to the caramel Kisses.
