I used this sweet image from the Scrapbook Stamp Society:  First Kiss.
Digi Doodle Download Stamp Heather Valentin First Kiss

To create a gate fold card I began by cutting Epic Black Linen cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11".  Using my Scor-buddy, I scored this paper at 2 3/4", then flipped it over and scored again at 2 3/4".

Since I wanted score lines along the two panels I created, I scored every 1/4" on both panels.  The Scor-buddy makes it so easy to get perfectly straight lines every time.

Using this sweet image, I colored it with Copic Markers, then cut it to fit my card.  After corner rounding the edges, I inked the edges yellow, then matted it with Red Pepper Linen and Lemon Yellow Treasures Cardstock. I then adhered the right side of the image to the flap with foam adhesives for dimension.

I cut the heart from Red Pepper Linen and then embossed it.  This cardstock truly stands up to die cutting and embossing.  I adhered the left side of the heart to the flap, allowing the right side of the heart to remain free inside the card.  When you close the card, the image lays atop the heart.

Inside the card, I used Indigo Ice Linen which I placed atop Red Pepper Linen.

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you get lost along the hop, please start at PaperTemptress.
