Modified Gate Fold card

Over at Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge the pick this week is  Create A Critter.
The wonderful ladies over at Scrappy Mom's Tuesday Challege is having a Sweethearts / love challenge.

Here is my entry for those challenges.

This finished card measures 5 1/2" x 4" folded so it fits an A2 envelope.  
The card body measures 12" x 5 1/2". 

I folded the body into a modified gate fold card. 
I scored at 2" and 4"  on each end of the card base.

Sorry, because this card is soooo long, it was hard to get a really nice shot of it. 
The stamp is from Studio G and says "My heart is yours".

The seahorses are cut at 3 1/2" from Create a Critter.  The little hearts above the seahorses heads are also from Create a Critter, cut at 1/2".  I applied the seahorses and the hearts with pop-dots. 

And of course, I ATTACKED the card with Stickles and my white gel pen!! :)
 The paper is from an ADORABLE DCWV stack called Doodle All Year.
This Valentine paper has glossy hearts all over it!!
