Cricut Card Monday #2

Ok, so it's Tuesday :(  sorry.   I entered this at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.

I had to really step out of my comfort zone on this one.  These are not the colors I am the most fond of, but I just love this saying, and it came printed on the green/purple card stock.  So here's the paper I started with.
I picked a card base from Paisley - cut at 5.5" x 11"

I didn't want the small cuts to show (I think they distract from the folds on the cards and are ragged looking).  So I used one of my favorite features on the Gypsy to hide elements of the design.
So now I have the card to cut without the small slits

The saying came on a rectangular card that was 3.75" by 4.25".  I wanted to frame it for the front of the card.  So I used two elements from George and Basic shapes to make the frame.

The outside of the frame is the square and the inside is the rounded poly gram directly under it.
I joined them together and cut it out.

Now this card is a tri-fold, so I wanted the frame to fit on the far left of the front of the card.
The green semi circle on the right is the slot the shuts the card together.

Here is a closeup of the front of the card:
When you open the card these is 11" of inside.  I only placed the purple wood grain paper in the center.  I added a cutout to the left side for a design element. This would make a great card for OWH.  There is plenty of room on the inside for the sender to write a message.  Or it would be a great way to send a photo.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, so I've left it blank.
Don't you just love this heart?  It looks like a frosted cake or a porcelain plaque.
 I know the print is hard to read, but this is the quote "If I could sit across the porch from God, I'd thank Him for lending me you." Flavia
The green paper and the tag are from an old collection of papers I had in my stash.  Flavia is the designer. The flowers are from Prima and the gems are from Michaels.  The heart is also an old piece from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by.
