Inspired Stamps- DT Thursday

 Love is in the air here at Inspired Stamps.  Today the DT is posting "love projects".  I have chosen to make a double easel card with Lovely lace, set and Fall Gratitude set, Inspired Stamps.
I saw a tutorial on the blog-o-sphere on using Framelet dies to make the double easel and I have a video tutorial for a triple easel in my video bar.  I do not own any framelets, so I used my Sizzix original dies (Heart no.1(large heart) and Hearts (set of 4) I used the largest heart on the die for inside heart.
I folded a piece of white cardstock in half and placed folded edge just inside the cut line and taped cardstock to die to run through the BigShot.  I then cut a piece of dp with same die to adhere to the outside of the card.  I repeated the steps for the largest heart on the hearts (set of 4) die and cut pink piece of cardstock for outside of that  mini card.  Before adhering the dp to outside of the card fold up the point of heart until it is in the center of the cut out opening (roughly half way up) then attach the dp to only the lower half of white cardstock.  This will allow for the movement to create the easel. Repeat the steps for the smaller heart.  I stamped the sentiment to the pink piece before adhering to white easel base.  I cut two hearts from my dp to adhere to bottom of pink heart for  continuity.  I stamped " I count you twice" on white cardstock and used window punch and foam adhesive to attach to inside of small heart cardbase.  This would allow a "stop"" for inside easel when open.  The little heart acts as a "stop" for the bigger heart when opened.  See pictures below of the entire card opened. This was a fun card to make with a lot of impact to the recipient.

Inside heart easel, opened to the "stop".

Card fully opened so that large heart is "stopped" at smaller heart and smaller heart is "stopped" at the raised sentiment.
Enjoy your Valentine's Day.  Make sure the people in your life know how much you love them today.
