Masculine “It’s Your Day” Birthday Card ~ Featuring the Triangle Fun Fold
I love a fun fold that lays flat to be mailed. It makes for a fun surprise when the recipient opens the envelope and out pops a fun card.
I used the Buffalo Check Cling-Mount Background Stamp to create the bold real red masculine background for my fun card and paired it with daffodil delight and whisper white.
Let me tell you how I made the card base.
First, you take an entire sheet of cardstock measuring 8.5″ x 11″ and score it down the middle at 5.5″ on the long side and down the middle at 4.25″ on the short side.
Then simply, put it in your paper trimmer from corner to corner and cut straight down the middle at the diagonal. This will potentially create two independent cards.
Once you have the piece you want to work with burnish the flaps or triangles and create your card as desired.
This is what it will look like when your recipient opens it. Awesome, right?
For the front of my card, I decided to use my layering square framelits and the Around The Corner Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Stamparatous to line it up correctly. If you have never used a Stamparatous before I highly recommend it, especially for lining things up on a square.
Before adhering the basic black scalloped square to the whisper white square, I did a zig zag with ribbon in between the layers. It added that quick pop of color and I think it looks great.
When I was finally ready to adhere the whole square piece to the card I had to remember to only place adhesive on the left top corner. Otherwise my card wouldn’t open!
Finally, I added three balloons! One in basic black, one in real red and one in daffodil delight.
This card is so fun to make and easy too. I was unsure that I would like it at first but quickly enjoyed making it.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to try a triangle fun fold! See you soon.
