Happy 80th(!) Birthday
Happy 80th birthday to my mother-in-law Judie!
I wanted to make a special card for this very special lady on this milestone birthday.
I wanted to have a panel for each person in my family: three for my three kids, and one for my husband and I.
I created a card that has extra panels but doesn't appear to from the front when closed.
The tricky part is that my youngest is in Chicago, my middle in NY, and my oldest and my husband and I near DC. My daughter left NY the day I mailed the slip to her so she had to send me a photo of a note she wrote. We made it work. Anything for my mother-in-law. xo
Ingredients: Very vanilla cardstock, Gilded Autumn DSP, Forever Gold Specialty Laser Cut DSP, and brushed gold papers; tuxedo black Momento ink; Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine; layering circles dies; Stampin' trimmer; liquid glue.
Cut a piece of Gilded Autumn DSP at 5.5" so you have a piece that is 12x5.5". Score at 4", 6.5", and 9", and fold like an accordion. Decorate panels with forever gold laser cut specialty paper as desired. Cut four very vanilla panels 2.5x3.5". Attach each of the very vanilla pieces to each of the panels. Adhere the DSP to a piece of brushed gold cut to 5.5x4.25" so that the DSP is attached at the back and can be pulled out from the front. Adhere a second piece of brushed gold cut to 5.5x4.25" to the back of the card so the brushed gold back panel shows both front and back. Stamp Happy Birthday on a piece of very vanilla. Cut out with the layering circle die and layer on the front on a piece of forever gold laser cut specialty DSP.
This card requires a little more effort but is worth it for a special occasion. If I am not clear, feel free to contact me and ask. If you make this card please tag me.
