Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this card. Card size: 6 x 7 3/4". Start with the 6 x 6” Foldout card base. Use the Fleur Border Basics to cut pink decorative paper to match each panel front and back. Use the Classic Border Basics to cut the top of the back panel and to cut paper to match. Use the Rounded Lattice Window Die (half circle with eyelet edge) to cut a white topper for the back. Glue the white to the front side of the back panel then glue the pink paper on top (this makes a nice finish front and back of card). Glue all the pink paper panels to their respective card panels front and back. Cut scallop eyelet white borders for each top edge (except the back as it has its own topper).
Stamp using Black Memento ink, the balloon, 1 “girl”, 1 each of the lamb, bunny, pigs, raccoon, and 2 each of the deer and elephant. Stamp 2 fence, 5 birds, 1 flower pot, 1 cart, 1 bench, 1 branch with birds using Black, die cut all and color. Using Magenta Hue, stamp several small Wild Rose, die cut and sponge the edges. Use the mold to form then glue 2 together for each flower. Fill centers with light green Prills. Using Forget-Me-Not and Buttercup ink, stamp several small cherry Blossoms for the filler flowers. Fill each center with light pink Prills. Using a medium green color ink, stamp 3 leaf sets and sponge with Chartreuse, die cut then form in mold. Use a star punch to punch 3-5 stars out of yellow.
Cut 4 various small tags for pockets and cut 2 white pockets using the Fleur Borders and Pockets. With everything stamped and colored it is time to decorate the card.
Starting at the back: glue 1 elephant and a deer inside the balloon basket (cut the bottom of the ropes to fit as needed) then glue the balloon to the card. Glue 1 corner to the bottom left. Insert 2 tags and glue stars onto the background. Stamp Happy Birthday and cut with the eyelet long die shortening as needed, sponge the inside with Magenta Hue then glue to the balloon basket.
Next panel in, to the left, glue the 2 pigs inside of cart then glue card to the panel. Glue the little lamb next to the handle as if it was pulling the cart and stopped for a picture. Glue flowers and leaves to the top right side.
Next panel to the left, glue the bench to the panel then glue the bunny sitting on the bench. Glue the pot to the right side of bench and the little deer to the left side of the bench. Glue 1 bird sitting on top of the bench back. Glue more flowers and leaves to the top right side.
Last panel (on the inside), Glue 1 pocket to the right bottom and insert 2 tags. Glue the remaining elephant to the left side. Glue a small bit of flowers and leaves to the top right. Close card.
For the front (when card is closed). Glue fence pieces together back to back then glue to the front of card on the left side. Match 2 birds (as close as possible) back to back and glue to the fence post on the right, inserting fence post between birds at the bottom. Glue the branch with birds above the fence, pop up 2 of the birds, decorate the branch with flowers and leaves. Glue the raccoon to the bottom right side. Stamp part of the sentiment saying “Birthday” onto white and die cut with the long eyelet die shortening as needed. Sponge inside then glue it to the fence leaving room for the decorative “Girl” beneath. Glue some light green Prills along the bottom on all “scene” panels for grass.
While card is closed, decorate the remaining showing panel top with flowers, leaves and a bird. Now all panels showing when open and when closed should be decorated. Add glitter to all the flowers, gloss the leaves and add sheer yellow ribbon where desired in flower arrangements and tags. Randomly glitter card panels as well.
