Another Valentine in a Fun Card Style

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I'd like to share a Valentine's Day card I made for my niece Sophia.  I found this really fun card style on YouTube.  It is from Splitcoast Stampers and  Laura Lipe wrote the tutorial for it.  This card is called a building block card.  I had never seen this shape card before, so I had to try it.  Here is what I came up with.  The front of card looks just like a regular flat card.

But then you open it and it is definitely not just a flat card!

Isn't that fun???  There are so many things you can do with this card.  I know I'll be making more of them for different occasions.
I used a Recollections Valentine Paper Pack for the solid and patterned papers and the white card stock is Georgia Pacific Brand from Walmart.  The felt hearts are by Creatology.  I used the Cricuit Sweethearts Cartridge for the three layered hearts on the front of the card, the Cricuit Artiste Cartridge for the Banner across the hearts and the letters for LOVE YOU were cut from the Plantin School Book Cartridge.  My niece's name on the front and Happy Valentine's Day sentiment on the inside were printed from my computer.

That's my card for today.  I hope you liked it and that you'll head over to Splitcoast Stampers to check out the tutorial.
