You really need to check out view 2 of this card. It is the opened view that reveals that this is really 3 hearts in one! A real eye grabber and perfect for all those kinesthetic stampers (those who love movement). Believe it or not I actually made 12 of these for some special swapping friends.
Be sure to see view 2 of this card too.

This is definitely a WOW project! I sure wish I could come to your 3D class! I love all that kind of stuff. What else are you going to teach? BTW, I love how you did the corners with the wrought iron punch. TFS. Linda

I am stunned by how great this is! Where can one get directions for this kind of card? Or is it your own technique? Love the card and would like to know how to create the stain. Thanks for sharing. Katie
