Inspired by this post
I made mine a little flatter (2 blocks high instead of 3) because it fit the glued on hearts around the edge better. I glued a little heart on each of the pop up struts. They're supposed to look like the conversation hearts, and they cover up the white paper.
I think it needs...something...as a background. I wish I had printed a very pale background of conversation hearts on the entire card inside BEFORE I cut it. So..I'm going to try printing it out separately and gluing it on somehow. It's worth a try, right?
UPDATE: It worked! I printed out the background, cut out the middle and glued it all together. Much better.
Side view to show the pop up mechanism.
Finally had a chance to pick out a paper to finish the outside of the card. It's two sided paper that has the dark purple on one side and light on the other. Here is the cover of the card.
Here is the inside with the light purple edging. I thought the card needed to be trimmed a little smaller, too. DONE!
