Valentine inspiration again

This card looks like a normal card from the outside
and pops-up  from the inside.
To make a card like this you need
2 cards: one for the inside and
one for the outside. I used  5 1/4 inch x 10, 5
piece of paper for a square card..

You can use any size of card, there is just one
thing that you have to think of:
the size of the heart. When you fold it outwards,
it should stay in the card, so do make a
trial version before you make the real thing.
This is the template of the inside of the card.
Put the heartshape against the fold of the card
and draw the lines where you will cut with pencil.
Cut the hears from the fold side (middle of the card)
to the ouside where you leva about half an inch fastned to
the card to make the hears pop out.
I decorated the hearts with embossed hearts
and the letters LOVE, also embossed.
The corners are die cuts, decorated with tiny gemstones.

 Used stamps:
Cloisonné hearts and alphabet stamps by Michael Strong
Sentiment by Stampin'Up!
The rosette on the front of the card is made with
Tim Holtz rosette alteration die.
Digital scrap papers by Create with TLC. 
Have a creative day!

What a great card, Hetty - I love it. Am doing a pop up or pop out too (hopefully) and you've given me another option. If only I can get the right size heart! Good thing I've got LOTS of scratch paper!
