A SPARKly Sneak Peek!

On Friday, Heather shared her first Spark of 2009. It was to make a card using a non-traditional fold. I decided to use some of the lovely A Muse 8.5" x 11" paper to make a gatefold Valentine. I used that funky little shack for this one with one of the older Valentine's Day sentiments (on sale NOW).

Here is a look at the fold/opening of the card. It looks like a gate, doesn't it? The folding part, that is. Well, sorta.

And, just to be thorough, I figured that I should show the secret message inside, too. I'll probably give this one to my husband, who is known to some as Shac. We love the phrase "Love Shack" so much so that it is actually on our license plate!

These images will be released on Wednesday! Yippeeeeeee! New rubber, paper and ribbon!

card info: paper, image, sentiment 1, sentiment 2 and twinkle sticker by A Muse, black and kraft cardstock, bracket punch, colored pencils.
