You Make My Heart Flutter

A friend of mine and my DH, asked me to make a valentine card for him to give his wife. So I took this opportunity to try out a new technique that Robyn showed us about 2 weeks ago. She gave Pat permission for her to use it for the challenge this week. The challenge was to make a LO or card with a spinner or as some people call them a slider on it. I downloaded the bottom layer from this site. The two hearts were cut from a pad of textured card stock by Imagine That.

The 2nd picture shows the two hearts I cut with the cricut. One is just 1/2 inch larger then the other. I cut the little slot for the slider out of the smallest piece, I stuck the little saying, "you make my heart flutter positioned on the back so it would show through the slot, The I adhered the two hearts together with dimensional dots after sliding the little guide into the slot. The 3rd picture show them before I put them onto the background patterned paper.

This next one shows the little butterflies that I found in my stuff. I used the full winged one to cover the top of the little slide. It turns as you move it from left to right. After pasting the hearts

on the patterned paper, I placed them on the front of a folded piece of white card stock. I finished it off with a little bow that made out of ribbon that I removed from a little girl's ponytail holder. Then topped it off with a side view of a butterfly. I hope she likes it.

Thanks so much for letting me share this with all of you. Thanks Robyn for the inspiration, and Pat for the challenge. Don't forget to also enter Heather's Friday night spark.
