Another Valentine

January class included techniques used on Valentines. I've already shown one, using a mask; this is the other, a card with a different type of fold. The design actually came from Ronda Wade, although I altered it to use the products I had on hand.

What I realized as I worked on this card, is that you could score your cardstock in many different places as long as the center/inside conforms to the basic card size, or 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Although most cards are made simply by cutting an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock in half, you need more than half a sheet for this variation. The base before scoring is 5-1/2" x 11".

The original card used black and white designer series paper from the Pop of Pink pack, but my paper is from the Neutrals paper stack. Ronda also used the "love" thinlit from the Sunshine Wishes set while I used the xoxo from a discontinued swing card set of framelits.

When you open the card once, it looks like this:
I used the valentine greeting from the discontinued Delightful Dozen stamp set for the inside, or center section of the card.
