Here is the fun card we made at this month's card clubs:
Isn't it cute!? I just love these bright, happy colors for kids birthday cards. I used the retiring 'Big Top Birthday designer paper.' Who wouldn't love getting a card that has a birthday present popping up when they open it up? (Think about this card fold for weddings.....!)
The inside White piece measures 5 ¼” X 8 1/4” scored at 4 1/8”. Fold this in half first. Then use the directions below to add your lines as shown.
Measure first from top to bottom making small marks along the fold. Then draw the horizontal lines with a ruler starting at the first marks and across as shown by the 7/8", 1 1/2" and 2" horizontal lines.
Now cut on those horizontal lines drawn onto the folded edge of your large White card stock, cutting through both layers. Next you should fold each of the cut lines back as shown on the photo below. Do this both ways using a bone folder to reinforce the folds.
Now you will open this piece up and push the ‘presents’ into the inside of the card so they pop out as shown below. You do not have to adhere the white layer to the card on this step until later or until you adhere the patterned papers.
Fold your patterned paper pieces in half (see measurements above) and adhere to your pop-out areas. I wrapped the short ribbon pieces to the inside of the bottom present and adhered the small bow with a mini glue dot to the top smallest gift.
