Fancy Folds For A Fun Birthday

It's time for a new challenge with us on the

As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.
Three to five random winners are drawn and
each get to choose 3 set of papers from the Paper Pick Tab


Today I have used the Flower Fun digital paper by Lozzy at A Bit More Time To Craft
to make some fun birthday cards.

These fancy fold interactive cards are called "wiper cards", they are flat in the envelope and as they open they become dimensional and, as an extra surprise, two balloons pop up.

I started the cards in Silhouette Studio and started with the gorgeous Flower Fun digital paper.  I cannot deny it, I adore the colours and designs in this FUN set.  I opened a cut file (details & link below) and sized the digital paper to mat the front of the card.  I "picked" the darkest and lightest purple shades from the design and used them to colour the contrasting matting panels and balloons.  As an extra surprise, I added a "1" and "2" to the balloons, so that when they popped up, they would become "12" for the birthday girl.  I printed the panels on textured cardstock, cut all the elements and assembled the card, securing all the joins and layers with liquid adhesive.

Here is the front view of the card,
it looks like a traditional square card ...


Here is the fully open front view,
you can see my "1" and "2"
they make a cute balloon "12" for the birthday girl.

 Here is the back view, I made a sentiment panel and matted it to match the front
... I might have to add some more balloons!

... and one lucky last photo of the two cards together ...


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
