Pop-up Flip Card

Hello, everyone!  Surprise!  Here I am at last!  First I would like to thank those of you who kept in touch and checked on me while I was away from blogging - it warmed my heart that you thought about me and took the time to email - you are appreciated!

I have been thinking of reviving my blog for some time now so I guess I have to start somewhere!  I'm doing things a bit different now so I can't promise I will be commenting very much but will try to visit from time to time.  I will see how it goes!

I am grateful to have had four new followers join me since the last time I posted.  Wecome to Migdalia RodriguezLoose Stitches (Sherry Gibson)Rachel Leah Huddleson, and Jeanie Ellis - thank you for being here!

This year I want to try some new card styles/folds so today I made a pop-up flip card. I followed a YouTube tutorial by CraftyPaws. Here is the front view:

Digital stamp:  Imagine That... Digis by Kris - Puppy Love (used precoloured image)
Patterned Paper:  Martha Stewart Love Notes
Dies: Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval Nested Dies and Scalloped Stitched Oval Nested Dies   
Other:  Embossing folder (Cuttlebug Cross my Heart)

Inside view:

The postage stamps were cut from the paper pad, and I also added a felt heart sticker  (Dollarama).

 Here's the side view:

Hi, dear Kitty!! Welcome back! Such a GREAT surprise reading your post, I'm so happy you are here again!!! :)
Don't worry for your comments, theyaren't necessary, we appreciate that you are here with us and we can see your lovely creations! Your valentine card is so inspiring, thanks for sharing! The cute doggie with the heart in his mouth is a delight and I love so much the design with that folding and the swinging oval!
The scallop around the oval looks great and the sweet colors and embellishments make the card so pretty!
Big hugs and love, my friend! <3
