THE CUTTLEBUGSPOT TRIFOLD VALENTINE CARD





















Good evening
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda challenged us to create Trifold Valentine cards and wow you should see the wonderful creations the Design Team have come up with! Mine is quite simple in comparison but it is a trifold!
I designed my card using my Cricut, Plantin School cartridge and Design Studio. I took the square shape and
squashed it up to a 1" rectangle then stretched the length to 9". I duplicated this shape then took a shadow of I and U and a shadow heart and placed them between my 2 rectangles and welded them. I then cut 2 each of the letters and hearts making sure one of each was flipped . After cutting my design I scored at 3" and 6" to make my trifold card, rounded the edges with a corner rounder then pop dotted the letters on each side of the card and did the same with the heart after embossing with the Cuttlebug Love Heart embossing folder. The valentine across the heart is computer genrated and just cut as a thin strip and also duplicated on the back of the card. I used the same papers as the card in my post below as I designed both cards at the same time and am enjoying these colours for Valentines cards.
Please pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and have a look at the wonderful Trifolds my DT sisters have made and be sure to  join in as there is a great prize for a random winner!

Oh and don't forget there's still time to enter to win my little blog candy in the post below!


Have a great week everyone and as always I'm so pleased you took the time to pop and see me!

I just love this card and the way you did it. It looks fast and easy to design. I have been researching ways to design a fast and fun card for my parents for Valentine’s Day, and your card gave me some great ideas.

Thanks so much!
