Valentine's Envelope and Hearts

Pinterest - what a happy place! I was inspired by a card that I saw on there that had a library pocket type envelope with hearts coming out. I didn't think to get the blog author's link to give credit. So sorry!!! I played off that design and now have seen several other cards similar to this one so guess we were all inspired. :)
This card uses the mini envelope die - look at that super cute, teeny tiny envelope! I LOVE it! The medium size heart from the Heart Trio is the perfect size to come bursting out of the pocket. The cardstock hearts are from the Sweetheart and Heartbreaker Cardstock pack (20 sheets, 5 of each color). The envelope and hearts are layered on a piece of kraft cardstock which is layered on a sugar card base. Prior to layering, I stamped the kraft with the sheet music stamp using versamark and then sponged the edge in cherry with a heart dauber. Don't you love that the hearts are kind of like helium balloons just bursting up and out of the envelope? (If it doesn't look like that, just pretend it does - it will make my day - LOL!)
The hearts are carried inside the card where another piece of kraft was layered on the sugar. This time the edge was made by dragging the cardstock against the cherry ink pad. Gives it more of a hard border effect.

This was the final new class project for January. The other was the Wild Rose congratulations card that I posted in early November. So, it was a pink and purple month. Not planned, just happily that way. :) Now, I need to start thinking about February's class but first, I've got to get swaps ready for National Convention which is coming soon! I can't wait!!!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

I avoid Pinterest where I can ... not saying I don't stop by for a looksee ... but I am not registered. I spend too much time on the computer as it is!

Gorgeous touch in the card, I love that you finished the inside too.

Hope you've been well!
