I teach a card making workshop several times a year. We had a small turn out last night, but we had such fun. I bring blank cards and envelopes, my paper stash (well not all of it, I would need a bigger car), punches, stamps, ribbon, scissors, markers, glue and glue dots, paper cutter, scoring board, lace, buttons, and anything else I can fit in a bin.

I usually make up some samples for ideas and then when everyone is quiet and involved, I make more cards!

The spiral hearts are cut as two separate pieces, mirror images of each other. Then the inner hear is pasted to each other. It's a bit tricky to get them attached correctly so the card folds, but the effect is nice. I used a single spiral heart on the cover of one and just let it spiral a bit and then glued the inner heart down. It won't fit in an envelope, so must be hand delivered. Fun!

The other pop-up heart is cut with the outer heart a mountain fold (sticking up) and the inner heart a valley fold. the tabs are folded under and glued down. A template is attached.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
