Another February Annviersary Card!

Good morning friends!

I have a quick and easy Anniversary card to share today. Remember I said that I wanted to use things UP in my studio? Well I've had these rose printed cards for years and YEARS. I wondered if the Heart Pivot would work on them, and it did!

The cards are an A6 size, so I trimmed them down to 4-1/4" x 5-3/4".  I used a gold Sharpie on the edges and I was ready to decorate the card.

The Heart Pivot die is a Pop it Ups die, by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  There are three Pivot dies in the collection; this heart, a butterfly and a pretty label shape.  Each one comes WITH the decorator dies for creating layers and embellishments, so I cut two of the smaller hearts out of patterned paper and added gold Peel-Off stickers.

The Best Wishes are from a sheet of Peel-Off stickers I've had in my sticker drawer for a very long time. Since I"m enjoying the Peel-Off's so much these days, I pulled out all my older ones as well.  I painted inside the 'heart flowers' with Twinkling H20's.  I love the subtle shimmer this paint gives. The photo below is the front of the card ...

No surprise that I also added Glitter Dots to the card ... I love those Glitter Dots! The photo below is the back of the card ...

When you open the card, the back and front hearts pivot to the inside ...

I added two more heart layers and a Glitter Dot as an place to add our signature ...

... here are the pictures showing the back of the card, and the view from the top ...

So this is another completely mail friendly card, and you know how much I like those!
