Hi Everyone! Thanks to those who participated in my first annual Phone-a-thon! It was fun!
This card was inspired from a card I saved from 2003. While on a weekend visit in '03 - Joan (BFF) and I got a book on folded cards. We each made a card for each other. My updated version on the left, our 2003 version on the right. Side note - Joan and I celebrated Christmas with each other last weekend. I took this card and we make our new version together again! Crafts and memories :)
At the time, neither of us had any punches or die-cutting machines. But that didn't stop us! We traced and hand cut all our heart. Of course! It goes so much faster with tools :) I've modified the size so the card base is half a sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock
Card base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" - Score at:
1-1/2" , 3", 4-1/2" - crease score lines with Bone Folder for crisp edges. Fold in an accordian fold pattern - back and forth. It should create an "M" fold.
Using 2nd largest heart from Heart Frames Framelit die set, cut three hearts.
Using same framelit die, die cut edge sections from Dollies. Align dollies over image and glue along outer edge so you leave a pocket to tuck in sentiments.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Single Stamp Love (need to get item!)

Ink: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple (matchy matchy!!), Craft Whisper White

Update! forgot to add Being Fab!
Being Fab - When I read this statement long ago, it struck a cord. (paraphrasing) "Ever notice how easier it is to forgive oneself than others?" I carry that with me and when I find myself thinking geeze, why did hubby do this or that, I stop and think about this statement. This helps me in all aspects of my life to keep forgiveness in my thoughts...I'd forgive me ! :)
