Valentine peek a boo card

It's superbowl sunday!   Yes!  I love the commercials!  what you say? the game?  oh yeah forgot about that!  Today's post is a sweet simple card for you to try.  It is made by using the new Heart Framelits Dies that are compatiable with the Big Shot. Check out the pics below to give  you a visual on how to make it.

First take your envelope and open it up,  take the 3rd largest heart die and place in the center.  Now run it through the Big Shot to cut out the heart.  Once cut out take the Polka Dot embossing folder and run the envelope through the Big Shot.  The whole envelope now will be embossed with the polka dots.   Take a sheet of transparency and cut it the same size as your envelope, (mine is 4 1/4 x 5/1/2, adhere to the inside of the envelope.  Now put the envelope back together and whala you have this beautiful envelope with a heart window!
The card dimension are 5 1/2 x/ 4 1/4 scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2, fold it up and run the top portion thru the Big Shot using the new Adorning Accents Edgelit dies.  Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to fit the back side and cut along the cutout.  Now decorate with the "Take it to Heart" stamp.  The ribbon is the new Riding Hood Red Pleated Satin Ribbon

here it is how it looks after you cut it out

here it is after you have run it through the Polka Dot embossing folder and put the transparancey behind it.
