Double Hearts, Double Love

Hello, Friends!  Welcome again to my blog. Special welcome to Karen and Kathlene, my new followers.   Today's card will be a special Spring/Easter card for someone special. It's called a Standing Heart Easel card and uses 2 layers of folded hearts.  I used images from Diane's Daydream Designs sets called Heart of Daisies color set and the Tweethearts outline set.  I am happy to be a member of Diane's Dream Team to bring you these wonderful images!

The card has two sections.  When you lift up the front heart, you see another heart inside.  Each heart nestles behind the other to create a cute standing card.

You can get a better idea of how the card goes together with the angled view below.

I have also seen this type of card done with 3 graduated heart sections, but using 2 layers allowed me to pop up several elements for additional interest and keep the bulk of the card down a bit.

I want to share this happy card in these challenges:
