Be Mine accordian card

Hi folks!! I've got a fun Valentine card to share with y'all today. Yup, I actually made a Valentine's card BEFORE February!! Hee hee hee!

The products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I have used are:

Classic Scallop Heart die (Spellbinders)
Doodlebug Sweet Cakes 6x6 paper pad
Doodle Twine - Sweet Cakes Valentine Assortment (bakers twine)
Parker Upper Alphabet dies (Memory Box)
Quickie Glue Pen

This card is a Zig Zag accordian card from the Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD from Technique Junkies. I added some of the patterned paper to the accordian folds and punched some hearts from the same patterned paper pad. They are sticking out of the accordian folds with the help of some silver wire.

The large red heart at the back of this card was cut from the Sweet Cakes 6x6 paper pad and adhered to a large white Scallop Heart (cut from the Classic Scallop Heart die set). I die cut the letters I needed to spell out my sentiment and adhered them with the Quickie Glue Pen. Lastly, I fashioned a tiny bow from the coordinating bakers twine and adhered that above the sentiment.

This will be a fun card to give to someone. Can't you just imagine the surprise on the recipient's face when this springs open? :-)  You can purchase the products listed above at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Save 10% by using this code, Holly-10, when you check out.

City Crafter #143 - Forever Mine
