Happy Birthday to Me!!

Hello Friends!

It’s my birthday today–Hooray!  I am hosting the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge this week and of course, I chose the theme BIRTHDAYS, since everyone should be celebrating ME, right?  Or at least the birthday of someone special in your lives!

I chose to make a fancy fold birthday card which is a variation of the traditional box card.   I saw this type of card on Lori Whitlock’s website and decided to give my own spin to this design.  I used paper and coordinating cardstock from the Zoe collection by Close To My Heart, which is now out of stock.  All the cuts were made with the Artistry cartridge, also by Close To My Heart.

Isn’t this a great card design?  If you would like to see lots of other birthday themed projects, hop on over to Bitten by the Bug 2.  I am hosting the challenge this week and the design team has been busy again!  Link up your own birthday projects for everyone to enjoy!

Remember something WONDERFUL is waiting to happen!   Laurie

  1. Glad I found your site- I’ve not seen this card before and I’d like to give it a try – what is the finished size?

    • Hi, Barb! I’m glad you found my site too! I am out of town right now and can’t measure the card, but I can tell you it’s pretty big–probably around 5×7. When I get back home later in the week, I can let you know the exact size. I also have a Design Space file I would share with you if you have an Explore. If you would contact me via 2craftysisterscreations@gmail.com I can reply to you directly. Thanks so much for your interest!

  2. I hope you have had a wonderful birthday!!! I can’t say strongly enough how much I love this card!!!! LOVE the cool fancy fold, the paper, AND of course the cute cricut cuts! I’m off to browse Lori Whitlock’s site for directions!
