Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Heart Collage Pop-Up along with a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Happy Mail.For this card, I started with an A2 size, top fold card using a light weight red cardstock. I used a patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs called Lots of Love.
I made the Heart Collage mechanism from a heavy weight cardstock from MFT called Fire Coral.
I stamped the Happy Mail images using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers.
I die cut several hearts from two different scrap patterned papers that I had and used them with the mechanism.
I had to fussy cut the images from the stamp set (which is something I really detest!) because I didn't have the matching dies, but they came out pretty good. I added them to the mechanism, testing out their position like Karen explains to do in the instructional video on YouTube.

I found a "post card" style piece from on of the pieces of patterned paper from the pack and added it to the front. I added one of the stamped images to the front.
I also added a piece for the inside to sign your name or add a message to the recipient using the dies that come with the Katherine Label Pop-Up. Then I added a little stamped image to the bottom of the message area.
I die cut the "Happy Valentines Day" to the top of the inside of the card, using Karen Burniston's Happy Valentines Day die.
This is such a versatile die and pretty easy to use! The end result makes a great surprise pop-up card that is sure to make anyone smile! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
