Stampers Dozen Blog Hop May 2019

Last month I missed the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop. I had just gotten home from Atlantic City where I attended OnStage and was not quick enough to post my creation.  This month is different and I am back on track!  Today for my Stampers Dozen Blog Hop May 2019, I had a little help with inspiration for my project!

Inspiration for my card!

May 14th happens to be my husband, Brian’s birthday.  It’s a significant one too!  He turns 50 today!  No biggie as I turned 50 back in February!  We live close to the water here on Long Island and when I picked the Swirly Bird Stamp Set, I knew creating a sail boat would be ideal for his card.  The card could easily work for a younger person (child or even baby!) I paired the stamp set with the Birthday Cheer Stamp Set because I love the sayings and I am rather sad the set is moving on.  I hope Brian has a fabulous birthday and all his wishes come true!

Happy Birthday to you, Brian! This is 50!

Card Measurements:

Back to creating your own fun folded birthday card.  It happens to be one of my favorites to create and I sometimes insert a gift card into the inside pocket.  Grab your paper trimmer and let’s get started!

Card Base:

  • Cut card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • With the 11″ across the top, score at 3 3/4″ and 9″

Belly Band:

  • Cut 1″ x 9″  a piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Stamp with dots from stamp set
  • Fold from back to front and overlap in the front (oval framelit will cover)

Layering Pieces:

  • Cut Whisper White Card Stock 2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Die cut Blueberry Bushel Scallop Layering Square Framelit
  • Die cut Crumb Cake and Whisper White Stitched Shapes Square Framelit

Inside Card Stock:

  • Cut Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • With the 5″ along the top of the trimmer, score at 1/2″
  • place tear & tape to the 1/2″ part to adhesive to card base
