Pop-up Valentine

02/23/2017 Update: This pop-up valentine was a winner at Creative Corner Challenges.

My 2017 valentines are finished. I only send a few to family members each year. I was inspired to make this pop-up card for a few challenges, keeping it low profile for easy mailing.
The card base was die cut so the hearts would pivot when opened. The card was decorated with die cut hearts in varying sizes, stamping and pretty paper. The right edges of the card were also die cut with stitched scallops.

This card is being submitted to:
