January Blog Hop


Tonight is another Papertrey Bloghop. The challenge this month was to create a birthday card. This is what I came up with.



I got the idea to make a flip card when I saw this video on Holly's blog for how to make one. I also used SCS Sketch #208 and this bedding for inspiration.

To make the floral pattern I stamped images from Floral Frenzy and Beautiful Blooms with the new True Black and Plum Pudding Perfect Match Inks on Stampers Select white cardstock. To create the polka dot patterned paper I stamped polka dots from the Polka Dots Basic Set on the new True Black cardstock then I stamped the polka dots from the Polka Dots Basics set with Snow White Ink. I matted the floral piece on a piece of Plum Pudding Cardstock then added some Plum Pudding ribbon in the middle of the card. Next I stamped the Happy Birthday saying from the Birthday Basics Set on a piece of Stampers Select White Cardstock with Versamark ink then embossed it with fine detailed embossing powder. After that I cut the saying out and matted it on a piece of Plum Pudding Cardstock then attached it in the middle of the floral piece. The pop up saying was made by stamping a sentiment from The Birthday Basics set with Versamark ink and embossed with fine detailed black embossing powder. I added a few small flowers from The Little Lady Set with Plum Pudding Ink. I cut the saying out with a sm rectangle Nesabilitie die and matted it on a piece of Plum Pudding cardstock that was cut out using a scalloped rectangle Nestabilitie die. I also cut a small slit in the right side of the pop out arm so I could attach the saying to the back of the card and display it open. This is something you could add if you want to. Finished size closed is 41/4x61/4.
Here is a short video with Emilia showing how the card works.
That's it, I hope you like it and this card has inspired you to make a card like it too. I am looking forward to seeing what the other ladies come up with now. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
