Pleated Heart Valentine Card

With Valentine's Day next week, I wanted to share with you this pretty card that has an unusual background pleated heart detail. 

Card Recipe:
Paper and Card: Textured, Prima, Stardream
Tools: Tonic Studios Affections Square Heart Base, Affections Heart On Mother's Day, Pillow Box Die and Sentiments, Scallop Layering Squares, Grand Calibur 
Embellishments: flatback pearls and crystals

The focal point for this card is the pleated background to the central heart section.  I have step-by-step instructions on how to do this over on my blog, DipsDesigns, here.  

Here's one last look at this card.....

Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Gorgeous card, I have been thinking of trying patterned paper with my dies - it looks amazing, love it.

    1. Thank you, I think mixing patterns and plains with your dies can create some really interesting results.
