Fold-Back Flap Card

Good morning, blogging friends,
It is no surprise I have had hearts on my mind recently.  All the stores have their Valentine's Day displays up and hearts are everywhere.  But I was thinking hearts I don't want to just use my heart supplies for one event during the year.  Why not work them into any kind of occasion card? So with this in mind, this card was created:

It's a very quick and simple card.  Below are a few instructions to get you started.

Fold Back Flaps Card

5 ½ x 4 ¼ card base ( 8 ½ x 5 ½ )
5 ¼ x 4 Doublesided DP panel, BoBunny A Gift of Love
2 ½ x 2 ½ piece of Brown card stock
Spellbinders Nestibilities Classic Hearts S4-136
2 sizes of Cherry Blossom Punch or any flower punch (small and medium)
Brown Brad
Memories Baby Pink Ink Pad
Distress Walnut Stain Ink Pad
Sentiment from Impression Obsession, C8560 Loving Heart

On the DP panel on the right side edge, measure 2 5/8" down from the top.
Measure again 2 5/8" down from the top, only this time place the dot 2” to the left of the first dot.
Cut the paper between the 2 dots; that would be 2 inches from the right side.
Score from each of the right side corners to the center dot and then fold back the triangle flaps.
Lightly distress the edges of the pink flowers with the Memories Baby Pink Ink Pad.  Round up/mold the petals.
Using a brown brad to hold them together, assemble the 2 flower pieces, the brown heart, and the DP panel together.
Adhere the DP panel to the card base.

Stamp a sentiment in the opening between the flaps.

Hope you like the card and want to make one.  Blessings,
