Someone Special card and gift Combo.

Afternoon, hope everyone is well today. i seen this gorgeous wee poem with a keepsake heart when i was in a wee gift shop last week and instantly the ideas were ticking away. I thought it would be lovely to combine this with a card as well as it turning into a gift after. I have attached a magnetic disc the the back of the the "Someone Special" heart, and on the back of the disc i have attached a very small glue dot to attached it to the card. The heart easily removes off the card and using your finger, the glue dot just rolls off the back of the magnetic disc. I have also attached sticky backed photo orders to the poem tag so that it is held in place securely with out having to have any adhesives on the back. It means the poem tag can be easily slotted in and out should the recipient wish. This card i have made into a Birthday card but it could also be made into a Get Well card or a Just Because card. I really am pleased with the outcome of this project and hope everyone does to.

Using my large A3 scoreboard from Crafters Companion to create an A5 box that is 1 inch deep, you will need 2 pieces of card both sized at 10 1/2" x 8" (Ten & half inch x Eight inch) and score at 1" all the way round.
