Good morning friends. Hope you all had a great weekend! Pretty quiet and wet here, although we did get out to see the movie Gravity. Great movie, although VERY intense...felt like I held my breath through most of it! Also spent some time in the craft room - mostly making more Christmas cards, but did manage to get one birthday card made. (really need to make some more birthday cards though as I have lots of birthdays coming up!)
Saw a tri-fold card on Pinterest and realized I haven't made that type of card in years, so that's what got me started for this birthday card. Take a look:
This type of card really is pretty easy to do. Just cut your cardstock the long way ( 11 x 4 1/4), and then score both ends at 2 3/4" and fold in to meet in the center. I used my circle and scalloped circle dies (Spellbinders) to make the part that keeps the card closed. I started with a Wisteria Wonder card base, and then stamped on cream cardstock with the "Meadow Greens" (PTI) stamp set. (I also used SU!'s "Script" background stamp on the two front cream panels) I used Always Artichoke (SU!) for the ferns and flower center and Wisteria Wonder for the rest of the card. I also embossed with white over the top of the Wisteria Wonder on the flower (click to enlarge either photo to get a better look at the embossing). Should have taken a picture of the inside too as it turned out really pretty, but didn't think of it till too late!
That's all for today friends, and now I need to get motating and get my day started. Taking hubby for his colonoscopy shortly here...oh the joys of getting older! (just routine...nothing wrong!!) Anyway, have a wonderful Monday and I'll be back with more inspiration as the week goes on! Thanks so much for stopping by...love it when you do! :0)
