Happy Monday to you! I have a fun fold birthday card for you today! And, it has a video, too!
I used to awesome new Broadway Birthday Bundle and the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is the greatest paper- bold colors on one side and gold patterns on the other!
Here’s the video:
* TIP: When I cut for the card, I cut two cards at a time from a whole sheet of Basic Black cardstock so I had a 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Basic Black cardstock lying on my desk. After the video was made, I saw the 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece I cut off the front of my card on my desk. I thought…hmmmm…that 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ I cut off the the Basic Black could be the actual flap! In the video, I have the flap measuring 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ but in the photo below you see the slight difference in the flaps, I just altered the other flap to be 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and the Lovely Lipstick panel on the flap is 2-1/4″ x 4″. Just thought I would share that- no waste!
