Pals Blog Hop - Art From the Heart

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because this month’s theme is “Art from the Heart” and we think you’re going to love it! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Today I have a Tropical Slider Valentine's Day Card to share. I always try to make my husband a card that is going to surprise and wow him in some way so I knew that I just had to come up with something amazing for him. He's actually very spoiled now because anytime I show him a "normal" card, he thinks it's too plain and boring...I've created a monster! 

Here is what the front looks like before you pull the tab to open it...
And here is a close-up of the front once it is open...
I really like how this turned out. I had a few different backgrounds that I tried before this one, but they just didn't seem right. As you can see I used the debossed image (where it looks like the leaves are sunken in instead of raised up) from the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder (Item# 152321). I really like it. 

To create the heart border I used the Heart Punch Pack (Item# 151292) and punched out a scalloped heart in Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and then put the scalloped heart in the plain heart punch to punch out the center heart. I love how the scalloped heart border adds a nice finishing touch.
