Baroque Birthday

I did also make another card using the Baroque Motifs set. I received this set as a gift from a friend in USA and have really been wanting to play with it and thought this was the perfect opportunity and made acherishflapfoldbluegreen flap fold card with it in Old Olive, Night of Navy and Bordering Blue.

I think these colours go so nicely together – especially for a man. Even my hubby said he’d like it as a card for him so its gotta be ok!

The flap is held closed by sliding the corner in under the flower accent.

It then opens up and to see the full message inside you need to just lift the flap.

I’ve stamped the flourish in Versamark on Old Olive Cardstock and used the word window punch to create the tabs at the side and affixed them with brads. Cherish is stamped in Night of Navy over the image.

I dont usually use card inserts but I did with this one. I again used the flourish stamp and Sahara Sand ink and stamped off the side and the corners. I used a stamp from Love Matters in Old Olive for the top greeting on the insert and the “Happy Birthday” is from the “It’s your Birthday” stamp set and again is stamped in Old Olive.flapfoldallopen

You can see here how the card looks when its totally opened. I am quite happy with how it has turned out and a bit sad we dont have this set in our Catalogue so I can share this with my customers.

I hope that Matt will like whatever card his wife chooses to give him and I pray he has a great day and a totally blessed 40th year!

I did make another of these cards … actually this one was my first attempt and the blue/olive was my ‘refined’ second card.

I made this one for a a friend and I do hope she will like it when I eventually part with it and post it off with her gift.

    What neat cards!! Love the closing mechanism on those, and, as a girl, of course I like the orange colored one the best LOL 🙂

    Gorgeous cards love the little finishing touch of the brads and strips.
