Hidden message heart card... this could be the front or the back...depending on the direction of your patterned paper...I like the fold side for the front...so next time I will cut the pattern upside down. (ahh the things you notice when you see the actual pictures LOL)
Fold in the sides to the center of the heart
I have had this card bumping around inside my head for weeks, I just had to find time to figure it out!
I cut out the heart with my cricut cartridge, cutting the heart shape at 6 inches...but that means 6 inches high and about 7 inches wide. (still figuring out the sizing on these cricut cartridge things!) I then folded in the sides to the center. Then fold the top of the heart down and the bottom section of the heart up to the top... and the point is held with the fun little" clippy thingy" This is hard to explain, but easier to understand if you look at the pictures above.
FYI: (To get the right folds and score lines, I cut a practice heart, figured out where I wanted my final scores and then scored on my Scor-Pal so that everything would be straight.)
For the image and sentiment piece on the inside, I just measured the inside square after I had folded the heart. In this case it was roughly 3 x 2. This little card just called for Snoopy to come out of his dog house don't you think?
Hmmm..one thing to take into consideration if you make this card...use double sided paper and depending on which side you want to be the front...you might want to cut the design upside down. On this card the side that shows all the folds is upside down...(just noticed that) and the other side is right side up...take your pick.
I would love to see your hidden message card should you make one too...leave me a message below!
