This is a birthday card for my Best Friend Krista. Her birthday was in February but I was sick the day we had our scrapbboking get together on her Birthday. I finally go the chance to scrapbook with her this past weekend so I gave her her card and a nice bag full of goodies.
This card was made using a new spin of the Joy Fold Technique. I saw this fold done on pinterest and decided to give it a spin. Here is the link to the original post that I saw the card on.
Krista loves cupcakes so I decided to use Lulu and her Cupcake by Kraftin' Kimmie on her card. I stamped her on Whisper White cardstock and coloured her with my copic markers. For the pattern papers I used My Mind's Eye Indie Chic paper. I cut her out with a circle testability and then mounted her on a cicle of pink pattern paper and then once again onto another piece of paper cut with the Windowframe Dies from Stampin' Up. The "Happy Birthday" is from CTMH Happy Birthday Set.
The button is from the Stampin' Up Sell-a-bration Ribbon and Button pack. I sewed it on the left hand side to help keep the card closed.
I then mounted the Window Frame cut out onto a rectangle piece of pattern paper with the corners rounded. The retangle piece was scored at the far right and mounted under the card base. On the left I use the Lables 17 Nestability and put a fold at the far left edge and tucked it under the
I mounted the whole thing to a Summer Starfruit Cardstock base and stitched around the outside with my sewing machine. The sentiment on the inside is from a old Stampin' Up stamp set. I stamped with Soft Suede on a scrap piece of pattern paper left over from the front.
