Place blank card in front of you so that the card will open from the bottom up.
Front of card-
Use the black marker to write Lots of towards the left side of the card front. Cut out three free-form heart shapes from red cardstock, in three sizes. Place the hearts along the right side of the card front with the smallest on the top and the largest near the bottom edge. Adhere to the card using a glue stick or double stick tape.
Inside of Card-
Take the ½ x 5 strip of white cardstock and measure and mark 1 increments. Fold at the 1 marks. Overlap the outer two sections to form a square ring. Adhere the overlapped sections together. Open the card so that the front of the card is perpendicular to the inside of the card (like an L). Take the square ring and place it in the center of the card, placing the side with the overlap along the inside of the front of the card. Adhere this side of the square to the card and the bottom side of the square to the other side of the card. This is the bottom pop-up
Take the ½ x 4 strip of white cardstock and measure and mark the increments: 1, ½, 1, ½ and 1 Crease at the marks. Fold into a rectangle with the 1 increments at the ends overlapping. Adhere the overlapped sections together. Place the folded rectangle on top of the square with the ½ section on the bottom. Adhere to the square and adhere the overlapped section to the inside of the card. This is the top pop-up.
Trace and cut out two hearts from two different shades of pink/red cardstock using the pattern. On one heart write 4 U! and place on the bottom pop-up and adhere as in the pictured sample. On the other heart write LOVE and place on the top pop-up and adhere.
From the scraps of pink/red cardstock, cut out a bunch of little hearts and glue to the inside of the card.
