Double DT Post

Hi everyone. I'm taking a page from Kerry's book today and posting both of my cards together, since both images are designed by Elizabeth of Softpencil Designs. AiFactory happens to carry some of her images, which is just fabulous as far as I'm concerned. I think they're darling!

For AiFactory, we were challenged to make a card with as many hearts as possible, using A lovely couple. These two are just adorable, holding hands. I used this week's CPS 153 and some Sugar Rush paper, which is just full of hearts, and came up with this square card.For Softpencil this week, we were challenged to make a spring card with Michu in Be Mine. When I first read the challenge, I had an entirely different idea in my head. I thought Kerry meant something like this, which turns out to be called a spiral pop-up card.

I had a really hard time with this one and all of the folds. My scores on the first piece of cardstock tore, so I had to redo it. Perfect? Me? Not even close! I think it came out pretty cute in the end, though. I used MME Be Loved and Prima flowers.
This card (Be Mine) is also for the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Be My Valentine
Pile it On - To One You Love
Fussy & Fancy - Hearts

Don't forget to visit my fellow DT members. Both AiFactory and Softpencil DTs are listed on the left sidebar. Stay safe and warm.
