Mocha Morning Birthday Wishes


I wanted to make something a little different and decided to make a front opening card …

I cut out a basic black scallop square from the bigz die, a 3-3/4” square out of crumb cake card and rounded off the corners. Cut a 3” x 6” out of very vanilla and of the black flocking from the mocha morning designer series paper. Score along each end at 1-1/2, so you end up with 3” squares that open from the middle. Open out the designer series paper so the pattern side is face down on the table (plain side facing up) and adhere the very vanilla piece, so that it makes a cross shape when open.

Cut a 2-1/2” crumb cake and 2-1/4” very vanilla square, on which to stamp your sentiment and adhere to the inside of your card.

Fold up your card, so you end up with 2 patterned & 2 very vanilla squares, on which you stamp your hearts. Whilst folded glue and adhere to the base of your card.

Cut a piece of very vanilla card cut at 3-1/2” x 2-1/4” and scored at 3/4”, adhere the 3/4” to the back of the square, to allow your card to stand up like a picture frame.
