Interlocking Hearts Card

These are my first two attempts at these interesting pop up cards designed by Jo.  She has two beautiful ones on her blog here and here.

My first one turned out to be a bit plain although I do still like it.  I used some yellow card for the base and K and Co scrapbook papers.  The hearts I embossed with a texture plate and Big Shot.

I was a bit bolder with the second one but still used some scrapbook papers with dark green card (and brown as I didn't have enough green!)  I embossed the hearts again and highlighted them with some metallic rub on cream.

The inside has some patterned vellum and more of the main scrapbooking paper.  I need to decide where to write a message.  I like Jo's idea of making two layers inside with a lift up flat.  I may try that next time.

I really like the design and the interlocking hearts close up quite securely making a really special card. The most difficult part is deciding how to decorate it!

 Thanks again Jo!

Lovely cards. I like the way the finished piece interlocks and the contrast between the two styles you have made.
