A Valentine gift

I was asked to make a card to help raise money for the British Heart Foundation fund raising at work the other day. This is it.

No stamped images for a change. Some home made flowers stuck to a heart shaped card base that was dry embossed with ink on the folder. Some die cut leaves for added interest. A few die cut swirls and heart shapes are in there as well
All encased in a gatefold card with acetate insert (slightly larger so that it bows out) and laced up with red satin ribbon.

A little pocket on the back was stuck on so that a greeting could be written.
I'm happy to say that over a £1000 was raised on the day for this charity that we support. Hubby had a heart attack a few years ago and they do such fabulous work.

I would like to enter this into a couple of challenges
Paper Pretties - Unique fold
Celebrate the Occassion - Use a Heart
Paper and Such - Love
Crafter's Companion - Anything goes
