This reversible pop up looks better in person. The trickiest past is aligning the hearts on the center fold with the stamp-a-ma-jig. I drew a pencil line down a piece of 5" x 5-1/2" US White CS where the center fold would be. I used the s-a-m-j and centered the hearts on this line. I then used the hobby blade to cut out the left side of the top heart, the right side of the middle heart and the left side of the bottom heart. I then scored the remaining pencil lines with the stylus tool and folded the center fold out (the reverse of a normal card). I flipped the CS over and again using the s-a-m-j I stamped the same heart on the reverse side of the card stock using the cut mark and the fold line as my guides for allignment. Note: This would NOT work with asymmetrical hearts. I then scored two more fold lines 1-1/4" in from each side and attached the ribbon. Then added the 2 pieces of 4-1/4" x 5 1/2" red CS. The alphahearts were embossed and punched out and mounted on dimensionals and the rest of the white images and letters are also embossing. There is some dry embossing on 2 of the corners that didn't show up on camera.

This looks very creative, interesting and beautiful!!! I'm embarrassed to ask such a silly question, but not having seen this type of fold before, I'm trying to figure out where it folds and what is inside and what is outside???

I'm so glad you like it. :) The picture you see above is the whole outside (the front of the card, and the back of the card). The inside of the card is posted as a separate card. When the card is shut you would only see one of the ribbons and the "be mine." It's not really displayed the way a traditional card is. Thanks for looking. :)
