BABY SISTER BIRTHDAY


Kind of sweet isn't it?  Decided to make my sisters card a dainty one with flowers, ribbon, buttons and bling.  A real "Girly Girl" card.  Bigger than the last card which only measured 4 x 4 this one is a standard 5.5 x 4.25 with a twist.  I started with a piece of stock that measured 7.25 x 8.5 and scored at the 4.25 mark.  Then on the left side I trimmed away 1.75 to make the left side of the card 5.5" tall.  On the right side I used one of my framelets and shaped the top of that side.  I then scored it so that the flap folds over the front of the card.  See those 2 little buttons on the front?  Well the points of the flap slide under the buttons and keeps the card closed.  Cool HUH?
cut only up to yellow line

Here's the card opened below.  Have fun embellishing this card.  Its such an easy fold and gives it a little more Pizazz then just a regular folded card.
Well now to figure out a guy card...yep I have another birthday for July.  I'm also going to be in need of another Congrats card too.  My Niece is due to deliver her second baby any day now.   Mannn...another July Birthday!  LOL   Between my grandkids and my nieces and nephews having babies there are going to be alot of cards to make.  

Keep your eyes out for the Masculine Birthday card coming up next!
Until then..................


HAPPY CARDING
