Love is in the Air!!!

 Hello friends, family and followers, I hope you are all well and staying safe. It's been a struggle for a lot of people, I have lots of time but I am really having trouble creating, I get the ideas and it takes me forever to either get started or to execute my ideas (if I have any). My plan is to try to get some organization into my room so it's easier to find things, 75% of my crafting time is looking for something which today I was looking for a stamp set, I went through all the dvd cases, and found nothing, even looked in a box that has things I brought home from the cottage in the fall, changed my mind on what I was using and where did I find it but right beside the table I was working on.  

The challenge for the next two weeks is "Love is in the Air" it doesn't necessarly need to be a Valentine card but we would like to see Hearts on your project. I went with hearts and Valentine, I need to make a couple more too. 

So for my card I used paper from a couple of 12 X 12 paper I bought 3 years ago or maybe more. Everything I used is over a year old, haven't shopped in that long. I used Spellbinders heart dies, the sentiment dies are two years old, I love the bold Hello, I am not a CAS stamper and there was too much "white" space for my liking so I had to add it.  The fancy fold I found on Dawn's Glitter Pit videos, it looks complicated but I followed her video step by step (takes longer when you do it that way) The fold is an Angle pop up fold. I do like trying new folds.  

Here is the inside to show the Pop up part.  It was fun and I hope to make more with this fold.  I added  a couple of die cut sentiments and it's done.

I'm entering this in 
Color Hues ~~ #11 Pink & Red 

Thanks for visiting today and have a great week, Stay safe, stay healthy.

I don't many of us have stepped into a craft shop in a very long time, but great use of your stash! The fold looks complicated but works well using the Color Hues colourway! TFS :)

Oh, Barb, I can so relate to what you're saying about searching for things in the craftroom. I hope we can both get more organized this year! Very cool card design - this is another one I've never tried before! I'll have to check out the video you mentioned! Great design for a Valentine!
