Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Valentine Pop-Up card

Hello, friends!
Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Valentine Pop-Up card

Thank you all so much for the sweet words about my craft room. I was cleaning again today boxing up things. I plan on putting all of those goodies into medium and large shipping boxes and selling them as mystery boxes here on the blog. They will all include tons of stamps, embellishments, and scrapbook paper. Once I get them all together I will give more details.

If you are interested in buying one if the mystery boxes, please leave a comment telling me so. I would hate to make up twenty boxes and only sell one!

Today, I have a pop-up card that I made using the Close To My Heart Artfully sent Cricut cartridge. I have been wanting to make another pop-up for a while, so I was really excited to start on my Valentine cards. 

Here is the Explore file: Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Valentine Pop-Up card

If you do not own an Explore, here are the sizes:
card base - 5.75"
card front - 4.25"
rectangular matting - 3.5" and 3.75"

The stamp set I used is from the NEW Seasonal Expressions catalog! It has two new paper packs and tons of really great stamp sets. Some of the sets are Valentine and Easter themed, so if you need Valentine and Easter stamps get them while you can!
