Filled Heart Pocket Card

Well, it's almost Valentine's Day so I came up with a different kind of card this year! I thought it would be fun to make a 3-D pocket on the front of a card with little hearts popping out of it!   I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart - you know, the cartridge with so much awesomeness on it!!! :-)  The papers and embellishments are from the Club Ruby Designers February kit.  If you are not familiar with Club Ruby and would like to be, click HERE!
This is the finished card! The recipe is as follows:

Start with a 4.25" x 11" piece of Kraft card stock. Score and fold in half to make a 4.25" x 5.5" card.
Cut a mat for the front of the card sized at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". I rounded the corners of the mat and the card base. 

Using the Art Philosophy cartridge, cut the Font layer shift on page 26 at 4.65" and assemble as shown.
Mount the heart to the front of the card.
Wrinkle up a small piece of tissue paper - I used pink - and stuff it randomly in the pocket.
I used my Gypsy and Megan Elizabeth's Paper Layerz paper to cut out several different hearts. To find out more about Paper Layerz paper, click the link in my sidebar.  
This is my Gypsy screen showing where my hearts will be cutting.
Here is the paper after cutting.  I love this paper because I don't have to put little pieces of different colors on my mat! I just put one sheet on and position my images where I want them and I'm all set!
Glue the hearts randomly so they appear to pop out of the heart.
Another close up.
All finished!  

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a creative day!
