Folded sceen card - meets birthday pinks!

hi all

well - with the 'One in a million' stamp set still out on my desk from a previous foray - and yet another Birthday this month.. couldn't resist giving it another outing.. Just love the related birthday stamp sets in this set.

Last weekend I spent a very happy couple of hours at a class and we learnt how to make those lovely 'folded screen' cards - and with my niece-in-law about to turn 30, I decorated my card with this particular birthday milestone in mind. 

I chose girlie pinks in Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo and Whisper White to go with!

The sadly soon to be retired,  Morning Post Alphabet, with the addition of lots of punched butterflies, flowers, an overall stamped background, happy birthday and related sentiments, a few rhinestones,  and herewith one card.

Folded screen card

So easy to do - one full sheet of A4 scored in 4 down its length,  the 'curly legs' courtesy of the decorative label punch,  used at half mast as it were, centred at the bottom of each of the 4 sections, a scallop border punch for decorating the top - and you have the basic card.

The Whisper White panels were just  a stamped sheet of card stock cut into 4 strips 7 x 2.5 strips, and adhered to each of the sections.

Then went to town with my embellishments - as is my won't! and even found a diamante '30' which I managed to recycle from something else I had.

All in all was quite pleased how it turned out so shall cross my fingers that she likes it.
