More Valentine's Cards!

Two of the cards that Leena made were a little more detailed than the others - the first uses acetate to make a "window" through the card.  She used two birds from the collectibles pack, and stuck one on each side of the window to make it look more realistic - this also helps to hide the adhesive! Sneaky!
Leena used the Kaisercraft Scallop frames wood flourishes as well, and I just love how it turned out!
 When it's closed, you see the navy blue card base...
This is the inside view, held over the official shop lolly jar.  We love our jelly beans! :)
Seriously though, I wanted to show you that you actually can see through the card.  And to show off how many jelly beans we have :).
The second card (and my favourite!!!) uses a fancy fold to add loads of dimension. 
These types of cards are MADE to be displayed.  By layering the embellishments on the different peaks of the card, it creates a very three dimensional effect, and affords depth that you wouldn't normally be able to create on a standard fold card. 
Have a shot at it - it's easier than it looks!
