Here is a card that I created recently. I made a few for some belated birthday cards for some members of my Stampers With ART team. (I’m not good at getting my cards out on time. I haven’t even started on making my February birthday cards. Guess those will be belated, too. hahaha) I also made another 60 of these for a swap that I participated in last month.
It took me some time to make all those cards, but it was worth all the swap cards I got in return. (I’ve shared a few here on my blog and will share more again soon.)
I used Embossing Paste, Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers, and the Stamparatus tool which will be available to all in the upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalog that debuts June 1st.
This card involved a LOT of steps…too many to explain with just photos and written directions.
So I recorded this Facebook Live how-to video this past Wednesday and uploaded it to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements below so that you can recreate this fun-fold birthday card, and then let me know if you have any questions. If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live every Wednesday afternoon at 2 PM Central Time.
