Bonanza Buddies, Wonderful Moments, Gallery Grunge, Children's Birthday Card

Today's card is a bit different.  It fits a business size envelope.  The #10 size.  I found the card here but there was no link to find out how to make it so I had to guess.  Here's how I made it.  

The base of my card is 9-1/4" x 7-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I folded it in half on the 7-3/4" side. I usually score my cards before folding but I didn't want to get the math wrong, so I just folded it and hoped it went in half on both ends.  It did!!!

I cut a 3" x 8-1/2" piece of Poppy Parade.  I taped it to the card base.

I cut a 2-7/8" x 8-3/8" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I did not have the cute stars and splats images that were used on the original card so here's what I did.  I took the large dotted image from the "Gallery Grunge" set using Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped that image 3 times on the card stock.

Next I stamped the Poppy Parade dots from the "Wonderful Moments" set.  I stamped them six times on the sides of the Daffodil Delight large dotted areas.  

I fussy cut the cute animals from the "Birthday Bonanza" 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  

I die cut the banner from the same DSP. 

I stamped the Poppy Parade bars using the image from the "Bonanza Buddies" set.  I fussy cut them.

And the words are from the "Wonderful Moments" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.

I set the animals and the banner in place using Dimensionals.  I looked at the original card for placement of the critters!

I added the Poppy Parade bars using snail tape.

I added crystal rhinestones to the front of the card and it was done.  

This was a very fun and easy card to make.  And it will hold some dollar bills nicely, no folding them in half!!! 

I have not made a long card like this in many years.  It's fun. I had picked up a back of the business size (#10) envelopes at the Dollar Tree last week.  It was just good timing!!!  

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
