This card was a bit of a challenge for me.  I wanted to use my new dies from Spellbinders, Triple Tear, but wasn't sure how I was going to do that and showcase this lovely image.  After a few practice runs through the BigKick a plan started developing and my wish list started growing.  A magnetic plate would have been handy as the die shifted when I cut out half circles on each side of the card.  I ended up using some tape to hold it!

This all started started with a piece of card stock 8.5 x 5.5 inches scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches.  Next step was to cut out the half circles and fold along the score lines.  Using the largest dies from the Triple Tear set cut the fancy trim for around the circle out of white card stock. The card is going to open so the die cut must be cut in half.  The front of the card was covered with heart paper from my stash and the die cut trim added around the circles on the front of the card.  The inside back of the card is coverd in the same paper as the front.  Center Rory and Mikey and attach in place.  I glued my card onto a slightly larger sheet of card stock because I felt it needed something more.  Use a piece of ribbon or glue a strip of card stock together large enough to wrap around your card to keep it closed.  Add a  few embellishments and your done.
