Swinging Z-fold Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day, Mom!

I created a Swinging Z-fold Valentine card using Spellbinders dies and Tim Holtz papers and Distress Inks. The Stampin Up Hodge Podge Hardware in silver provided a frame for a small sentiment. I covered the words with Glossy Accents.

I got the directions to make this type of card from here: Splitcoaststampers Tutorial. I actually foolishly used my Cuttlebug to cut the hearts. The front ends up being three layers and the paper and cardstock I used were too thick for  my machine to handle. Next time I would just cut each layer separately and then glue them together, instead of trying to run all three layers through at once. This was an expensive lesson, but I really like the card even so!
