Folded Paper Hearts Card

I woke early today and decided to get up and fiddle with paper.  I stamped a swirly scribble design across a piece of cardstock and then die cut heart shapes.  I then folded the hearts down the centre.

On each heart (the plain side), I then stamped a circle pattern so that there would be interest for the section that would be flat on the card.

I stuck a striped piece of patterned paper to a blank card and inked some of the edges in various shades of red/brown. I did the same with a small doily/coaster.  Sticking the coaster to the middle of the card.

I then positioned & glued the folded heart shapes into a flower design, adding a small metal embellishment to the middle of each circle pattern.

I stamped and die cut a butterfly using Papertrey Ink "Love Lives Here" stamp set and stuck it onto the card.  I then stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up, Weather Together set.

From a practical aspect this card wouldn't really be suitable for posting unless it went into a box.  This technique of folded hearts would also work in a shadow box frame too.
