Happy Birthday Ava

April 1, 2019

Yesterday was my youngest Granddaughter’s birthday.  I like to make something that is a little different for my family so for Ava I created a Z-Fold card.  I have to apologise that just about all of the product on this card was only available during Sale-a-bration which finished yesterday.  So I hope that you all put your orders in early because some of this product has been unavailable for a while.  I can’t emphasise enough that when Stampin’ Up! says “While Stocks Last”, that is exactly what they mean.

You can find lots of instructions on Pinterest and other places on the net to create this kind of card.  I cut my card base and the co-ordinating strip of card from Thick Whisper White card.  I cut pieces of the Painted Seasons Designer Series paper and attached them to the panels on the card base and the narrow strip of card.  I stamped all three of the frogs from the So Hoppy Together stamp set , one of them four times, onto scrap Whisper White card.  I coloured the frogs using the Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Hop Around Framelits Dies.  After they were cut out, I cut away the bike from four of the images.    I cut Grapefruit Grove card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and also Whisper White using a slightly smaller rectangle.  I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the Whisper White rectangle using Grapefruit Grove ink.  I attached one frog to the base of the stamped Whisper White card.  I stamped the birthday cake from the Amazing Life stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the cake image and attached it to the Whisper White rectangle using Mini Dimensionals.  I wanted it to look like the frog is carrying the cake.  I attached the four images of the frog that is now not sitting on a bike so that it looks like he is turning a somersault.    I punched out a balloon from Mango Melody card using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and attached a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine behind it using Mini Dimensionals.  I attached the last frog over the small flap on the right and side making sure that the end of the twine is attached behind his outstretched hand.  I cut Whisper White card using the second largest of the rectangles from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  I stamped Wishes from the More than Words stamp set using Grapefruit Grove onto the top right hand corner.  I added the detail to the wishes using Crumb Cake ink.  I also stamped “birthday” from the same stamp set using Crumb Cake ink.  The Whisper White rectangle is attached to a Grapefruit Grove rectangle cut using the largest die from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  The panel is attached to the back of the card to give me somewhere to write my message.

Wishing you a Happy Birthday for yesterday Ava , hope your day was amazing!

Bye for now,
