Love Verses Double Door Pop Up Cards

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create a set of fun fold cards for the women in my Bible Study Fellowship discussion group. The Word Art Wednesday blog currently has a lovely verse that I thought would be perfect for the front of my cards. All the beautiful scripture word art at Word Art Wednesday is free, and I have used a lot of verses from that blog in my cards over the years. I chose another verse from Creative Fabrica for the inside of the card that also goes with the theme of showing love. 

I recently created a cut file for this Double Door Pop Up card design in my Sihouette Design Studio software using instructions from Lisa Curcio's video and blog post here:Surprise & Delight with this Double Door Pop Up Birthday Card (  If you'd like to see another version of this card design, I shared one with pop up sloths here: Carrie's Custom Cards: I Love You Slow Much Card (

I chose some pretty Valentine-themed papers and then cut out the card bases and layers and did a print and cut of the verses. I assembled the cards and then die cut some hearts using the smallest Gina Marie Stitched Heart die from that set. I added a couple die cut hearts to the outside of each card and a few ruby-colored gems to the inside to embellish them. The women in my group loved them! I didn't sign them so they could pass them along to anyone the Lord puts on their hearts who may need a handmade card as an encouragement this week. Valentine's Day can be hard for many people, and shifting the focus from romantic love to Christian love can be a blessing for those who are single or widowed or getting over a breakup. 

Here's a look at the card when fully closed and when fully opened:
