Art in my Heart!

This is my 1st Valentime card using my new Art Nouveau cart.
I love the images!  If you do not own this one,
think seriously about getting it.
This is really a Thank You card for being a wonderful Mother.

I started with forest green card stock and used the "Z fold."
This card was made around the rose cut from the AN cart.
I then added half-circles in larger increments,
embossed the white and red layers while inking the pink.

I found a coordinating paper from my scrap stack,
punched the edge for a more elegant look,
added a brown ribbon, and layered the rose cut on the top.
To finish off the front, I added some hearts from the Sweethearts cart.

The inside has the same coordinating red-toned paper,
matted papers with a rounded edge,
the Valentine verse for MOM,
more swirls hearts and small gems for some added elegance.

This is a great fold and will stand alone for display.
There are a ton of extras on this card and the "popped" images make it dimensional.
I hope my Mom like this!


  1. OMG Marcia, your card is amazing! The z-fold design alone is unique in itself, but the way you've embellished everything is just beautiful. Great job. TFS!--Pat N.
