Lynn's Birthday

Good morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was really productive and more than a little exciting. If you haven't already noticed, I've got a new addition to the lineup of widgets here on my blog plus a fresh new page link at the top that takes you to...drumroll very own website! The widget is a peek at my new 5inkyfingers Etsy store and gives you a gateway to get there too. I'd be thrilled if you'd take time to check both of these new additions out and, of course, tell all your friends!

Today I have a special birthday card to share with you. My pal Lynn had her birthday on Saturday so Friday I gave her this card. The fold is a little different, and I'm sorry I didn't think to take a photo of that aspect, but I'll try to describe it anyway.

I started with a 5.25 inch square of Chocolate Chip and 5 inch square of So Saffron. I also cut a 4.75 inch square of Neenah Baronial Ivory for the inside. Next, I cut a 5.25 x 4 piece of Chocolate Chip and a 5.25 x 3 inch piece of Certainly Celery. The rectangles were scored .5 inches from one end and adhered to the back side of the So Saffron square opposite each other. The ivory square was stamped around the edges in Ridinghood Red with the flower trio from Best Blossoms. I sponged the whole thing with Chocolate Chip too so it wasn't so bright in contrast to the DP I was planning on using.
The next step was to decorate the two folding panels so I covered each one with a different DP from the K & Company Wild Saffron assortment and tied a saffron bow around the Chocolate portion. Finally, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of ivory, punched it out with my EK Success Estate Sign punch and layered it on a 2.5 inch Garden Green scallop circle. I sponged both pieces with Chocolate Chip, used dimensionals to adhere it to the card and finished it all off with three Ridinghood Red flowers and a little bling.

P: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Neenah Baronial Ivory
I: Chocolate Chip, Ridinghood Red
A: EK Success Estate Sign punhc, 2.5 inch scallop circle punch, sponge, dimensionals, ribbon, gemstones
