Happy Birthday Stu
Made this latest card for my brother whose birthday is today. I saw this fold on Create & Craft and wrote all the instructions down, however it took me a few attempts before I got it to lie flat so it would go in an envelope. I think this is called a 'step' card and they seem to be very popular at the moment.
The cardstock as usual all came from my stash. Firstly I marked out where I had to cut/score and then cut the card. Next I randomly stamped the stop watches and compasses, these stamps came from a Clear Choice stamp set that I've had for years. Then I masked them and stamped over the entire card with a script stamp from Hero Arts. Finally I traced around some chipboard letters I have (but am too scared to use incase I need them!) and stuck the name to the folds in the card. I added an eyelet and brads to the letters before sticking them to the card to make it look slightly more masculine. Didn't have any Navy brads so used a Teal colour and went over them with a Navy permamarker!
Was quite pleased with how this turned out. Hope you like it too.
