Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a Dutch Door Design. It is so much fun to make and uses very little supplies.
To make this fun fold start with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock and score it at 4 1/4. Don’t fold along the score line just yet as you will want to cut first. Lay your paper in the paper trimmer at the halfway mark, 2 3/4″. Cut from the end in to the score line then rotate the paper and cut up to the cut line. You are removing the top portion of your card front.
I used the piece I removed to cut out the Star Blast Edgelits Die (retiring). I stamped a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock using the Birthday Blast Stamp Set (retiring) and Flirty Flamingo ink. I attached this to the inside of my card. Next I adhered the star blast die cut to the front of my card making sure to line it up over my stamped stars. I cut a piece of 2 1/2 x 4 Flirty Flamingo DSP from the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring) and adhered that to my card front on top of the die. I stamped my banner on a piece of 1 1/4 x 4 whisper white then punched the end with the Triple Banner Punch and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The only thing left to do was decorate the envelope to match.

You could easily use this card for graduation, anniversary, retirement, good grades, etc. in addition to birthday like I did. I love this stamp set and dies and am sad to see it retiring next month. It is fun and versatile. You could cut out the Large Number dies to put on the front to use for a graduation card. The Stamp Set and Dies are still available. The dies are only available while supplies last. Click HERE and HERE to see more fun projects I did with this stamp set and die. *The die is on sale for 30% off. Reg. $20/Sale $14.
Have a Delightful Day!

Sounds like you did have a happy birthday I “held my breath” all day when I turned 13 on Friday the thirteenth – but nothing bad happened. Best birthdays are shared with family doing nothing really special except being together. Having grandkids makes it even sweeter
