I saw Marquee cards on Jan Tink's blog back in 2009.  I always wanted to make one, but never seemed to get around to it.  Then I saw a version of it on Dawn Olchefske's blog.  Her video made it look so easy that I thought I'd give it a try.  I want to try one using sticky strip on the inside (like Jan's) instead of dimentionals (like Dawn's), so the card will close better.

I realized that I had to embed the heart on the inside or the "curtains" would get caught on it.  I tried the little heart punch from the itty bitty accents punch pack, but it didn't reach far enough to center it.  So I used the smallest heart from the hearts framelits instead.

Happy Stamping!  Mary
