This Valentine pop up card is easier to construct than you would think.
For want of a better name, I call these “meet in the middle” pop up cards.
Half of the design is cut from either side of the card and the two pieces are slotted together.
This card is really an elaborate variation of the slotted X mechanism.
The slotted X is covered in How to Make Pop Up Cards, Lessons 11 – 15 .
How to make the pile of hearts Valentine pop up card
The file set includes score lines for the center fold, and tiny score lines at the heart points. I suggest turning OFF those tiny lines if you are a machine cutter who uses a dotted cut, dash cut, or kiss cut. (My hearts ripped off when I used a dotted cut.) The hearts will fold up easily enough without scoring, or you can hand score.
