Anna Griffin Birthday

Hello friends, welcome and thanks for stopping by. I have a 'Fancy Fold' card to share with you today using gorgeous papers by Anna Griffin Inc. - they are a favourite and certainly do a lot of the work - don't you think!?


Cut white card stock to 13.5cms by 27.5cm. Turn over and score at 8cms and 10 1/4cms.  Turn around and score the opposite end with the same measurements.  Fold both ends in a valley and Mountain fold to form the card base.  Cut three pieces of  Anna Griffin Inc. Lovely Layers patterned slightly smaller than each larger panel and adhere using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L. Adhere narrow paper lace to each fold.

Stamp the sentiment using Imagine Memento Ink in Danube Blue and trim to size.  Pop up onto the middle of the centre panel using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. Fussy cut/hand cut using scissors, two butterflies from a recycled card; adhere one above and below the sentiment, applying glue to the body.  Pop up each wing using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.   Adhere a small Little Birdie Crafts flower to the centre of each butterfly.

Cut/emboss two white Spellbinders Nestabilities Open Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies, popping up into the middle of each side panel. 

Adhere a Kaisercraft Doily Collectible the the centre of the circles, followed by a Little Birdie Crafts flower.
