Post Card Fold Out Valentine

Kendra here today and this week the Design Team from The Rubber Cafe' are having fun showing off their new projects using the latest Creative Cafe Kit called For the Love of Cats & Dogs.  It is such a fun kit!!!

Here's my first project using the kit, and it has a bit of a post card look...

Step 1: I took a sheet of the kraft cardstock and cut it in half ~ each piece is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Then I scored each of them at 4 1/4" and attached them so there were 3 panels showing.

Step 2: Using an oval die, I centered it and cut out the oval shape on one of the side panels.

Step 3: Next, I layed the card flat and stamped and colored the stamp and postage images from the You've Stolen My Heart stamp set (which is the set included in the kit) on the top right corner using Memento ink.

Step 4: I folded the card and added a slightly larger oval behind the window with one of the fabulous Bo Bunny papers in the kit.  I also added a few other patterns on the bottom edge of the card for a little more texture & balance.

Step 5: I stamped the large heart from the add-on set called True Love on kraft cardstock and trimmed it with my scissors.  Then I stamped the same image again on pattern paper & trimmed the inside heart then attached it to the kraft heart.

Step 6: With my paper piecer, I poked two holes in the heart and added the heart stick pin to my image and then added a sentiment from the True Love set.

 Step 7: Opening the card, I added a red cardstock panel (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") to the inside.  Then I added a 1" strip of pattern paper to the bottom.

Step 8:  I stamped one of the sweet puppies and the sentiment from the "You've Stolen My Heart" set on kraft cardstock, colored the puppy, and trimmed with dies to add to the center panel.  Then I added one of the red heart gems from Queen & Co to the puppy's mouth.

Step 9: The heart border on the bottom panel is from the True Love add on set & was stamped with Love Letter Red Memento Ink.

You are really going to enjoy this kit!
