Hey Sweet Heart Folded Flap Card

Happy Tuesday Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing a fun and colorful Valentine's day card. Here's a look at my finished project. I used the sweet Mrs. Gingerbread Die as the focal image from this year's Christmas release.

Here is a look at my finished card. I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 white mat. I then used a pink cardstock mat and some yellow mini hearts patterned pattern.

Here's a closeup of the sweet little Mrs. Gingerbread die. I used some Doodlebug patterned paper for her hat and dress. I mounted her onto the 3rd pierced circle die from the set. I then used a smaller circle punch for the mat. I added a couple of hearts from my stash.

I used a scallop punch and some circles along with some hearts for the last part of my sentiment.

Here I used the Hey from the Berry Phrases Sentiment along with the Sweet as a Christmas Cookie die.

Here is the center slightly open. I used a small Velcro circle to help keep the flaps closed.

Here is a closeup of the inside. I used some of the heart stitched dies along with the I Love You 

How to do the center of the card
I used the largest Pierced Circle from the set and cut it out 4 times. I also cut a separate piece of white cardstock at 3.75 inches squared. I folded the circles in half.

Next I glued half of the circles to each side of the square. This is what it looks like in the photo above.

This is what the back of the card looks like once the 4 circles are attached. This photo is with the circles open.

This is what it looks like when the circle are closed.

I then used the next size circle down and used the pink cardstock for mats.

I then cut the circles in half and attached half on the front flaps and on the inside flaps. If you decide to put the mats on, make sure you leave a little room so they will close. I ultimately decided not to use the pink mats for the inside.
