Birthday Easel Card

Happy Sunday Rubber Cafe' Fans!

I am so excited to share another fun fold card project that I made with the March Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit of the month, Special Celebration.  I used the add on set, Little Cupcake for today's card.

Here is my card when it is closed and ready to mail.

But...this is an easel card so when the recipient receives this lovely card, they can set it out for all to see and it will look like this! 

To create this card, Start with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of navy blue cardstock.
Fold the card in half to create a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.
Fold the front of the card in half.
Adhere a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" panel of flowered paper to the top portion of the front of the card with Scrap Happy Glue.
Do the same with the green and white striped paper.

Tie a piece of light teal ribbon around the top of the lower portion of the card.

Adhere a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8 panel of patterned paper to the inside of the card.
Stamp the sentiment on a 1 1/4" x 3 3/4" of white cardstock with black ink.
Back sentiment panel with a 4 1/4" x 1 3/4" pink panel.

Adhere panel to the inside of the card with 3D foam squares.

Stamp the floral cupcake image on a white die cut circle panel with black ink and color with colored pencils.
Back the cupcake panel with a larger circle panel cut from patterned paper.
Then back with a slightly larger circle panel of light pink cardstock.
Finally, the bottom panel is a navy blue scallop edge circle panel.

Fold the front of the card up so it rests behind the sentiment panel to create the easel.

Adhere the cupcake panel to the card by applying -Scrap Happy Glue to only the bottom half of the panel.

This card is a great way to give a gift card to someone special for their birthday.

I hope you give it a try!
