Forever Greenery Happy Birthday Stable Door Card. Share it on a Sunday

 Good Morning Everyone,

For this week's share it on a Sunday we have the theme - NATURE. A really broad topic which can encompass so much, but I have focused on leaves and foliage for today.

Recently I did a stable door card in a landscape orientation, so thought I would try it in Portrait and I love how this has turned out.



Measurements

Shaded Spruce Card Stock 

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

1pc - 2" x 3 3/8"

scrap

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"

scrap

Forever Greenery DSP

1pc - 3 3/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 1 7/8" x 3 3/8"

scrap

Take the Shaded Spruce card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Now, on what will be your card front, mark down 2 1/4" from the top and the cut that top section off up to the score line. This will make the front piece smaller than the back piece.

Layer up the thin strip of DSP onto the strip of shaded spruce card stock, then adhere this to the larger piece of DSP. Add this to the card front.

Now, bring in your Stampin Cut & Emboss machine and cut the following using the stitched shapes dies:-

Largest circle in Shaded Spruce Card Stock

Second largest circle in DSP

Next size down in Basic White,

Also, run the basic white card stock through the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder which has all the leaves on - it's a small folder, but just run it through as much of the top of the card as possible.

Add the embossed panel to the inside of the card.

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from Here's a Card in Shaded Spruce onto the Basic White circle, then layer all three circles up. Pop dimensionals onto the lower half of the circle and add to the card front, making sure the top half sits above the cut edge.

I hope you have enjoyed today's card, please pop over and see what Donna and Karen have made.
