Happy, Happy Birthday

October 15, 2018

Today’s card uses a fancy fold shared by Julie Burt on a Demonstrator only facebook page.   Unfortunately Julie doesn’t have a blog or facebook page yet, but I will let you know when she does.  I have shared a card made using this template previously but this was actually the first card I made using Julie’s amazing idea.  My card is for a special friend who celebrated her birthday recently.  Happy Birthday Jenny.  The card is a little like a Tri-Shutter card with a twist because it has a small card that opens on the front.  I used Julie’s template to cut Thick Whisper White card for the base.  I added pieces of the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper to the panels.  I created the flower for the card front by stamping the large flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the flowers using Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and the leaves using Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.  I cut the small centre piece from one image and the full flower for the second image and attached the small flower to the centre of the full flower using dimensionals.  I cut out the leaves and attached them behind the full flower before attaching to a Whisper White circle which I cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  The small squares of Soft Sea Foam card are embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.  I embossed a large piece of card and trimmed one “tile” for each of the panels.   The small flower is also from the Graceful Garden stamp set which I stamped onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink The flower is once again coloured using the Calypso Coral and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the flower and cut the leaves from the flower.  I attached the leaves behind the flower before attaching to the Whisper White circle cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  To decorate the last panel I cut a large circle from Whisper White card using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and stamped “happy” from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped the frame from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set around the greeting and used the die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies to cut it out before attaching to the circle below the “happy”.

To decorate the inside of the small opening card, I stamped the leaf from the Graceful Garden stamp set twice onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the leaves using the Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends before cutting them out.  I attached one leaf to the top left hand corner and one to the bottom right hand corner.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  Thanks again Julie for the fantastic idea and once more Happy Birthday Jenny.

Bye for now,

Kris
