Flight & Airy, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today's card is done with a layout I don't use too often. I don't remember that the fold/layout/technique is called but it's very easy to do. As you can see I'm still using the "Flight and Airy" Designer Series Paper (DSP), mostly because it hadn't been put away and I'm lazy! LOL Please read on to see how I made today's card. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the DSP and I marked center on the right side and measured in from that mark to 2". You can draw a light line from mark to mark. Then snip from the outside mark to the inside mark. Fold back each side. I like to add a dot of glue to hold down the pieces. And make sure you burnish the fold so it stays down nicely too, make it nice and crisp.

I punched the birds from the same DSP package using the "Heartfelt Hexagon" punch. I also cut two Boho Blue hexagons too. I taped them behind the DSP piece creating the look of a layer. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was laid on top of the front of the card. I didn't stick it in place I am just setting it on the front to see how much space I have for the words.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Boho Blue ink. 

Now the card was ready for the bird piece. It was set in place and the card was done.

Isn't that amazing how little work you do to make a pretty card quickly?

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,

I love that fold and having that piece of the dsp as the focal point is perfect. Great card!
