"How do I Love Thee" Victorian Themed Card


I love this poem, and I wanted to find a way to use it that would make the poem the main focal point of the card. It is a beautiful poem, so again I chose to use a victorian theme. This is my first attempt at a Tri-Fold card, and I totally winged it. I could have looked up a tutorial, but didn't want to take the time because I was already in create mode, and I didn't want to stop. So, this
was not originally intended to be a tri-fold, but after much thought about design...turned into
one. I like the end results and would love to try this again sometime. I really fell in love with the inside of the card because I just thought it would look beautiful to put a wedding or anniversary picture in the middle and have it displayed all the time. This is such a romantic card for Valentine's Day too. I am getting braver with my designs. I am going to have to try the sewing very soon.
