Free As A Bird Birthday


It's time for another blog hop with:

Be inspired by demonstrators from all over the world! This month our theme is Birthdays. Spoil yourself and visit all the participants for lots of great ideas!

Card Measurements

Card base:    29.7cm x 10.5cm scored at 14.9cm and folded

Inner layers:    14.5cm x 10cm

Scrap for sentiment


  • Using the 2nd largest Stitched With Whimsy die, place die on front of card base so one edge of the die is over the fold and run through Cut & Emboss machine with bottom plate finishing at fold so only the front of the card base is actually embossed (don't forget to unfold your card base before running through)
  • Stamp image on front of card base inside embossed lines using memento
  • Stamp image on bottom right hand corner of inner layer
  • Stamp sentiment on scrap (mine was approx. 1cm x 10cm)
  • Unfold card and colour image with Stampin' Blends
  • Adhere inner layers to inside front (DSP) and inside back of card base
  • Cut a 'V' out of one end of sentiment scrap and adhere to front of card base using dimensionals
