Guitar Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Center Step Easel Card I created recently. This is a card I made for a friends son who is turning 50 this year and apparently likes guitars.

For the base of my card I used Divinity Designs Center Step Card with Layers die set. To create the easel portion of the card at the bottom of the card, I cut another piece of black cardstock that measured 5 1/2 inches x 6 inches. I scored along the 6 inch side at 1/2 inch and adhered this to the back of the centre step card.

To decorate my card I used Tonic Studios Electric Guitar die set. I die cut the guitar from black cardstock and then layered this onto a piece of white cardstock that has double sided adhesive on the front. I then covered the exposed adhesive with Dark Mint Silk Microfine Glitter.

I added silver glitter stars around the card before attaching the guitar. I added black music notes to three of the larger stars.

I used Lawn Fawn's Oliver's 123s to add the "50" to the top left hand corner of the card.

Here is a look at my card when it is folded flat ready to be placed in an envelope.

I added some flames to the two sides of the card which are from an older MFT Stamps die set called Rock and Roll.

Another photo showing the back of the card when the card has been folded flat.

I added the Happy Birthday Melody die from Memory Box for the sentiment. I also added a tab above the sentiment using the smallest rounded rectangle from the Hero Arts Rounded Rectangles die set. This tab helps keep the card open when it is on display.

I cut a white panel for inside my card and added the same paper I used on the front along the bottom of the card.

I added the "Have a Rockin' Birthday!" sentiment to the white panel which is from The Stamps of Life Guitars2Play stamp set.

Clever way to combine the Step card with an Easel type!
