I needed a special birthday card for my Dear Husband this week.   I kind of had an idea of what I wanted to do, but found exactly what I wanted with a YouTube video for a double z-fold card by Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts.  Her video was so easy to follow and I kept pausing the video so I could cut along with her measurements.  The card looks complicated, but it wasn’t at all and it was fun to create.

Here’s the card:


The first picture is of the closed card, second one shows the inside.  The DSP is from the True Gentleman suite, and it is fabulously masculine without smacking you over the head with it.  I used the Happy Birthday thinlit and cropped it for 3 layers.  The bottom is Night of Navy, middle is Tranquil Tide, and the top is Wood Textures DSP.  The bases are all Very Vanilla. I tend to have a difficult time with liquid adhesives with this thinlit, and I don’t trust myself to use snail adhesive with all these layers.  Enter my Xyron machine for the save. The inside sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday photopolymer stamp set, another MUST HAVE suite.  I used Chocolate Chip ink for the inside sentiment.  

My DH was quite impressed and initially thought it took a long time to create.   I was able to convince him it was not as complicated as it looks.  I’ll definitely do this one again!

Have a Peachy day!
