You can never send enough love. This card was created to send to family far away. The recipient is very musical so the musical score embossing folder was the basis for this z-fold card. I took the rest of my inspiration from the magazine that the dies came from Papercraft inspirations issue 176.
I used the pink and red cardstock from my January 2019 Hero Arts kit and a white piece of cardstock cut diagonally from one corner to a point about 2 inches from the opposing corner. The pink hearts were cut from cardstock I had embossed with the folder from the Cardmaking & Papercraft issue 178 “Make an Impression” set. I used the “lots of love” stamp from the same set to stamp and then heat emboss with white embossing powder on to a brown craft paper. The heart stamps were from a rubber Lil’ Stamps of hearts by Inque Boutique (c)2007. Cards from a Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack were also used for the inside sentiment.

What do you send someone who can’t have visitors, flowers or food?
A pop-up box full of spring flowers.
I like using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up as a base for any kind of thinking of you card. It is different from most store bought cards and it allows for a variety of possibilities.
For this card I used Stampin’ Up’s Tearoom Copper Vinyl Stickers to decorate the card sides and envelope. I used papers/cards from Stampin’ Up’s Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper and Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack.
The flowers are from the shaded tulip Stamp & Layer set by Susan Bates for Papercraft Inspirations magazine, issue 182 Stamped using CraftSmart and Hampton Art mini ink pads.
