Happy 50th

Hi friends,

It's Sandy Diller here with a masculine birthday card.  I think you will agree that when it comes to the guys, a card is hard to make.  I'm using some of the new spring release from Karen Burniston, I love her pop-up cards and this is a good reason to use them.

Let's get started -

For a video tutorial on how to assemble this die - CLICK HERE.

Using the Fancy Label Accordion - Cut 3 panels.  For this potion you will want to use strong cardstock as this part will take lots of opening and closing.

Fold on each score line (the tab) and then attach all panels together.  Make sure that all the tabs on the sides are going in the same direction.

It is easiest to keep the card flat for all the decorating.

Turn the entire card over so that the back side is facing up.

Using the Fancy Flourish Frames - cut 4 sections to decorate the front panel.  Glue in place as shown above, when card is folded this panel will be the front of the card.

Using the Outdoor Scene - cut pieces to decorate all three panels.

When using the deer, cut the decorator piece, remove the deer and then cut another deer from desired color.

Decorate all panels using the Numbers die and the Words Set 3.

When decoration is complete, fold card and glue tabs.  

I hope you have been inspired to try this fun card and I'm sure the guys in your life will enjoy it as well.

See you soon,
