Welcome back to the bi-weekly Cardz 4 Galz challenge # 224. Our host, Pamela picked Celebrations (baby, graduation, Mother’s Day, etc) for the theme. When you finish here, please visit the challenge site to see what the rest of the very talented design team members created. Then, don’t forget to upload your creations to our gallery. We look forward to seeing your creations there!

Here’s my celebrations fun fold anniversary card:

The layout for the front of this card meets the Try a Sketch on Tuesday (TSOT) challenge # 645.

Since it evolved into a fun fold, I will also be adding it to the gallery for the Creative Creases challenge.

Basically, this card started out as a regular fold anniversary card. However, the person who ordered the card wanted to emphasize that it’s his parents’ 40th anniversary. Therefore, I added the inside flap. Truly, if you can create a regular fold card, you can do this added flap card.


  • The Pebbled Path base measures 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • The Pebbled Path flap part measures 4-1./2 by 4 inches, scored at 1/2 inch.
  • I used the Nature’s Sweetness 12 x 12 DSP (designer series paper) for all parts of the card.
  • The script background measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Next, I cut a piece of the splattered DSP to 4 by 4 inches. Then I traced out a partial circle from the corner of the DSP and trimmed it down.
  • HINT: If you don’t have a handy dandy tool, you can use trace a bowl for the size you need, then trim it down.
  • The splatter DSP for the inside flap measures 3-3/4 inches square.
  • I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to the same 3-3/4 inches square for the inside sentiment part of the card.
  • The gold and white DSP on the inside of the card measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Finally, I trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched a 1-inch circle from the splatter DSP for my envelope seal and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • That’s it for the measurements.

Stamping, Heat Embossing, & Assembly:

  • After wiping down a scrap of white cardstock for the front sentiment, the floral spray and the piece for the inside sentiment using my embossing buddy, I stamped the all the pieces using VersaMark ink.
  • Then, I covered each with gold embossing powder and heat set it using my heat tool.
  • Next, I cropped the floral spray using the Lovely & Sweet coordinating die set.
  • Then, I trimmed the front sentiment down and cut it so it formed the banner end.
  • I added dimensionals to the sentiment banner and the floral spray to adhere them to the front of the card.
  • The “40” was cropped using the retired, but still well used, die set for the large numbers.
  • I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere all the DSP and cardstock pieces.
  • Make sure that you add the inside flap to the inside of the card before you adhere the gold and white DSP to the inside.
  • I wanted the very inside to be covered by the flap, which explains why that white cardstock is off-center.
  • I stamped another floral spray from the Lovely & Sweet stamp set on the inside white cardstock.
  • Finally, I added three gold pearls to the top, right-hand corner of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
