I have a fun card for you today.  I started with a fold from a card I had received in a swap.  It had several layers that opened like pages in a book.  I started with that, but took a wrong turn somewhere in my scoring, LOL!!!  But I am happy with the Tri-Fold Card I designed from the error.  I hope you will enjoy it as well.



I LOVE Cats and Dogs, and most other animals.  And my husband does as well.  Maybe even more than I do.  So this became the Valentine card I will give to him.  Here is a view of the open card.



The cat is smiling up at the frowny face little dog and I thought that was too cute.  When in actuality, it would be just the opposite probably. Since cats are usually the stand offish ones.

Here is a close up of the cat.


I used the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper for the stand out part of the card.  I chose three different papers that worked together.  The ribbon is from the Playful Pets Trim Combo.  I tried to line them up along the bottom.

The hearts are from the Heart Punch Pack.  I kept that simple to show off the dog and cat.  They are fussy cut from the Playful Pets DSP also.

The sentiment is from Hot Dog Stamp Set in the Mini Catalog.  I used a small sticky note to block the rest of the sentiment.  All I wanted was the I Love You.  I have a small pad of those on my desk for a variety of uses.  I just have to remember to remove it before I stamp!!

I will add a small piece of White cardstock on the center panel for what I write for hubby.  But for the picture I left that off.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I do have all of the measurements for you.  All of the supplies are at the bottom of the post.  I hope this gives you a Smile in your day!!
