Valentine - Love Heart - Z Fold Card - The Door Was Marked

Yogi here today and thought I'd get ready with Valentine's cards...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Just For You" 2pce set, "Flourished Frame" 2pce set, and "Calligraphic Elements 3" 9pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE, HERE and HERE

I'm also using a quote and sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design ("The Door Was Marked..."); ("Valentine-Love" 8pce set)

 Also using a couple electronic cut files from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase. 

Opened the Be My Valentine file, and moved everything off my mat except the hearts border. Increased the size to 1.356"h x 7.444"w. Copied and pasted a 2nd line of the hearts. Also opened the "Love Heart" file and increased the word to 4"w. cut all from white cardstock. Inked with Distress Oxide "Worn Lipstick" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Chinese New Year" embossing powder.

Manually cut the card base from pink cardstock, cutting diagonally across an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock, starting at the 7"h point down to the 4" point.

Scored it at approx 3.6" increments. (divide the 11" width in 3)

Adhere the heart borders to the top edge of card base, separating the hearts at the score line point if it interferes with folding.

I used a paper mask to protect my card base when inking the backside of the center hearts (since they are visible when card is closed...), using the same pad and embossing powder.

Electronically cut the "Love Heart" from white cardstock and inked and embossed as heart border. Kept the little drop out heart, clear embossing that piece. Adhered to card front.

Used my Tim's "Stampin Platform" to stamp the valentine sentiment using the "Worn Lipstick". I had to stamp it twice to ink on either side of the flourish... Clear embossed.

The double hearts are the drop out pieces from the border inked with the worn lipstick. Some of them have little nicks on their edge, so adhered a good one over the nick then clear embossed them. Adhered them here and there.

Die cut the "Just For You" and the "flourish" from white cardstock, inked with the worn lipstick and clear embossed. Adhered to center section adding a double heart.

Stamped the quote on white cardstock using the worn lipstick, clear embossed and die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" set, sponged edge with the lipstick and adhered to 3rd panel. Adhered the double hearts and the heart/bow.
