Your Creative Connection #110: Happiest of Birthdays Easy Fun Fold Card

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC110.  Our theme today is: Hey Dude

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

I chose to use, what I personally think is one of the new must-have stamp sets, Happiest of Birthdays!

DOstamping Tips:

  • Color the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots with Stampin' Blends!  I colored one of them with Night of Navy dark for this card.  With our Stampin' Blends these resins dots can go with anything!
  • To assemble this fun fold card:  fold bottom half into a Z fold.  Only adhere the top of the sentiment piece to the card (with Stampin' Dimensionals).  It holds the bottom half in place, until you unfold it to reveal the inside of the card.

I definitely recommend adding the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set to your collection - you'll use it all year long!

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.
