Happy Birthday Ava

April 1, 2017

My youngest grandchild, Ava, turned 7 yesterday.  My how the years have flown.   I wanted to make her a special card and found some instructions on You Tube by Dawn Griffith to make a four fold card.  I love the look of the one she made on the video using the gorgeous Floral Phrases Product Suite.   Of course that card was a little old for Ava, so I went with the Carousel Birthday stamp set.

I created my base card following Dawn’s instructions using Very Vanilla card.  I used Early Expresso card to create mats for each of the panels on the card.  The front of the card is stamped with the circus tent image from the Carousel Birthday stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Peekaboo Peach ink.  I small piece of Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper is attached to the bottom of the stamped card and the top edge is wrapped with Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.  I tied a bow using the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon and attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot.  On the next panel, I stamped the greeting from the Balloon Adventures stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Bermuda Bay ink.  I stamped the confetti image from the same stamp set around the greeting using So Saffron ink.  Another piece of Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper is attached to the bottom of the stamped card and the top edge is once more wrapped with the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.   The next Very Vanilla panel is slightly larger and is stamped with the carousel horse image from the Carousel Birthday stamp set using Bermuda Bay ink.  A piece of the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper is attached to the bottom of the stamped card.  I stamped the greeting from the Carousel Birthday stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Early Espresso ink and attached it over the Designer Series Paper.  Once more the top edge of the Designer Series paper is wrapped with the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.  For the next panel I left the top of the Very Vanilla card blank so that I could write a small message.  I stamped the greeting from the Carousels Birthday stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Early Expresso ink.  The greeting is attached over the Designer Series paper and once more the top edge is wrapped with the Gold 1/8″ Ribbon.  The last panel of the card is the largest so I stamped the carousel image from the Carousel Birthday stamp set onto the Very Vanilla card using Early Espresso ink.  Designer Series Paper is attached to the bottom of the panel and wrapped with the same ribbon.  I stamped the carousel image onto scrap Very Vanilla card using So Saffron ink and cut out the cupcake icing using the Up and Away Thinlits Dies.  I also cut the cupcake bases from Bermuda Bay card using the matching Up and Away Thinlit Die.   The die cut images are attached over the stamped carousel images using Glue Dots.

What a fantastic card fold, so much fun.  I think I am going to have to make more of these!  What do you think?  Have you made one of these?  I’d love you to share.

Bye for now,

Kris
