Fun Fold Birthday Card

Hi there!  Wow, we had some high winds yesterday!  My heart goes out to the families affected by the tornado that hit Washington, IL.  We certainly have been experiencing some crazy weather! 
How about a card to change the mood?  The above sample was from our October Card Buffet, which is showcasing the Cycle Celebration stamp set and Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper.  The inspiration for this card came from Aly Schilling.  You can see her card and video here (scroll down to Sep 19 post).

Here is a view of the card opened.
A couple of changes were made to my card - one being the Decorative Label embellishment was positioned across the ribbon to act as a closure.  The card base color was changed, too.  The fold is easier to make than it looks.  Give it a try! 

All Stampin' Up! supplies used unless otherwise noted. 
Stamps: Cycle Celebration 
Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, White, Pool Party, Birthday Basics DSP 
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Raspberry Ripple 
Tools:  Decorative Label punch, Large Oval punch, flower from Itty Bitty punch pack, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, bone folder 
Other:  Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched ribbon, rhinestones, Dimensionals, glue dots, clear blocks

That's it for today.  Thank you for stopping in to visit!

  1. This was such a fun card to make. I loved stamping the envelope too with the coordinating candle.
