Here is the card I made. This is a sliding pop-up card. I used K & Company paper to create the card.  The elephant and hearts were cut from the Cricut HOLIDAYS CAKE cartridge.  The sentiment BE MINE is a cut from the Cricut SIMPLY CHARMED cartridge.

This card is so much fun because when you slide the blue base down, the  card will pop up!!!
I wrote a message to the child who will receive this card.  It says, "Someone is thinking of you today.  Happy Valentines Day".  I decided to write the message by hand, so it would be more personal.  

Here is a side view of the card.  It shows how the card pops up.  Splitcoast Stampers has an excellent tutorial on making the card.

Valentine Button Brads!!
