Get Funky- Show Us Your heart

WOW, it's nearing the end of this month's Get Funky challenge and what super entries we have so far

It's now my turn , Allison, to share my card for Jules challenge

Show Us Your Heart

Don't forget that you must include a Funky Hand element somewhere on your creation - this could be from one of the papercrafting cd's or a download or even one of the very new Our Betty stamps! For all the details on how to enter - click HERE for Jules original post which kicked the Funky Fifteenth off.

So here is my card for this month

Now before you say anything.. yes I know the tutorial has a different design to the finished article!!I had to make a fiance Valentine card for someone at work so used the stages for the photos as I never took photos of the top card.. oops

Cut two large hearts- I used the Large sizzix heart die- infact I cut four and layered them together or if your card is thick enough then two will do and you can print double sided on the card before cutting

Take a piece of card and cut it to approx.24 cm long and 10.5cm wide, score at the left hand side about 1.5cm in

Now cover the flap and inside the card with paper( I am using papers from the Love Love Love download here)

Attach one heart to the flap with foam pad and attach the second heart to the first one

Your card is now ready for you to decorate

For the top card ,I made some flowers from a butterfly punch and printed the words With Love from the writer section in the new Craft the Year Away CD and the papers are from the February section of this CD
Hope you are having fun with this challenge and remember you still have up to the 14th to enter if you haven't already
