Birthday Wishes


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

 Tomorrow is Dictionary Day. For our challenge this week, create a card that includes words on your card. Maybe a scripty word background either stamped or using patterned papers, large focal sentiment etc.

A few week's ago I shared a Slimline Double Dutch Fold Card complete with tutorial, you can see that post here. While I was making that card, I was also putting together another card using different papers, but didn't finish it. When I looked at that card, I noticed that the scripty pattern paper on the top flap of my card, fitted this challenge. So of course I pulled that out and finished it off.

To decorate my card I pulled out an older stamp from A Random Fan, which I mounted onto ovals and added to the bottom of the flap.

I also added a birthday sentiment, using a Crafter's Companion Edge'ables die and a stamped sentiment.

Here is a look at my card as you open the two bottom side flaps. 

Here you can see my card fully open. I used Pinkfresh Studio's Slim Ornate Banner die set to add the panels on the inside. I also added a birthday sentiment, which is an older Hero Arts sentiment from my stash.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Love this one, Frances! That Pinkfrest Banner die on the inside adds lots of interest. Thanks for the link to your tutorial again. I'm going to have to give this one a try.
