Tri-Fold Birthday

I have had the most wonderful day playing with my friends.  We spent another day at Scrapbook Creations stamping and scrapping.  My friend, Bonnie, and 4 others came from North Carolina and 7 of us came from Greenville area (Kim, Bev, Sondra, Susan, Karen, Linda, and myself).  Believe it or not, I was “not” the last to arrive.  I, of course, brought half of my craft room in my trunk with my mind set to get certain cards finished.  This was one of them.

This was a fun card to make.  I had seen this tri-fold card but had not made one.  You can see instructions for it on Split Coast Stampers Resources.  I used some lovely yellow cardstock for the base and used some cute decorative cardstock for the two corners on the front.  The image is, of course, House Mouse” Poppin Good Birthday” (HMGR1010).  This is one of my favorites and I had to have it the minute I saw it.  I stamped it in black on white cardstock and colored it with my Tombow markers.  I sponged a little denim Adirondak ink around the edges and layered it on the same yellow cardstock, then on blue.  I attached it to the left side of the card.  The flower on the front is a jeweled one I picked up somewhere (sorry, can’t remember where) and the little butterfly is a vellum sticker (sorry again, the camera just had to pick up the shiny edges even without a flash).

For the inside of the card I stamped  the House Mouse sentiment “Word of Mouse” (1465E) in the denim blue on white cardstock.  I sponged the edges with yellow distress ink and layered it on blue and green cardstock.  The flower and butterfly are also vellum stickers.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
House Mouse Challenge #90 – Multi-Fold Cards
Bunny Zoe’s Crafts Challenge #9 – Spring…Flowers Everywhere
Simon Says Stamps Challenge – Anything Goes
Ellephantastic Challenges – Cute with a Butterfly
Dutch Dare Card Challenge #103 – Photo Inspiration
