Color & Contour Birthday Card

This card folds out in a unique and fun way!

Start with a 4.25″ x 11″ piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Score the paper at 5.5″ and 2.75″

The inside of the card will be made by adhering a 5.25″x 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the center of the 5.5″ side of the card and stamping the “You are amazing” greeting from the In Bloom Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink.

For the front of the card, I stamped a 4.5″ x 3.25″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock with two flowers from the Color & Contour set. I used Polished Pink Ink for the outlines of the flowers and petals and Pale Papaya for the centers of the flowers. I used Evening Evergreen for the outside of the leaves and Soft Succulent for the inside of the leaves.

I stamped around the flowers with speckles from the Color & Contour set with Sahara Sand Ink.

For the center flower, I stamped an additional flower on Whisper White Cardstock, cut it out with dies from the Color & Contour and adhered it to the card with Dimensionals.

I adhered the piece of Whisper White Cardstock to a piece of Polished Pink Cardstock with the scalloped die from the Color & Contour set.

I adhered the back of the Polished Pink piece to the outer 2.75″ section of the piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Make sure you adhere only half the Polished Pink piece and it goes on the same side of the card as the inside greeting (see photo above).

Finally, for the greeting I stamped the “Happy Birthday” greeting from the In Bloom Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock. I adhered it to a piece of Gold Foil and wrapped it with a piece of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon.

When the card closes you will see a little bit of the back of the card peeking through!
