Love is in the Air - Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop

Welcome!! Annette here for those of you who are new to my blog.  This is an Exciting new Blog Hop Group!!! So Excited to be asked by Angie MacKenzie to participate!! Grab your favourite drink..sit back and hop along to see all the Gorgeous Inkspiration we have planned for you!!

Love is in the Air is this month's theme!

I wanted to use the Snailed it! Bundle.  And that cute little envelope you can build was calling to me!! I mean when you mail someone a handmade card you make it with Love and definitely send it with Love....I could not wait to make this card once I pictured this in my head and I had seen this cool pop up card and wanted to give it a try.

Colours are Real Red, Blushing Bride and Basic White cardstock
Stampin Blends are Daffodil Real Red and Flirty Flamingo
Ink is Tuxedo Black Memento and Blushing Bride

To make the card I cut a piece of 8.5 x 11" in half at 4.25 and scored it at 5.5
Then I placed a triangle in the top left corner of the folded card measuring 3.5" across the top and 2.75" down the fold and positioned it in my trimmer and scored with lots of pressure, then flipped the card and did the other side following the faint score marks.  Then you fold in the middle so the corner is in the card.  Here are a couple pictures to illustrate.
