Amazing Birthday - And Happy Fathers Day!

Hallo Stampers!

In Australia  we celebrate our dads the first Sunday in September - sooooo my projects for this week are for the Fathers out there! However, with a tweak here and there, they can work for any male celebration (Birthday, Thank you, etc).

I was lucky enough to receive the Amazing Birthday (134228) stamp set as a free set at Convention this year! How versatile is this set! In this card I used only parts of the Amazing Birthday stamp. The Flashback DSP works perfectly with this Tri-Fold card, because of the strong patterns and bright colours!

My Tri-Fold Card will not fit in any conventional envelope (it measures 10cm x 21cm) but I was going from the point of view that this will be a card handed over personally. Although this type of card is nothing new, my directions for my Tri- Fold Card:  Start of with an A4 cardstock (29.7cm x 21cm), measure from the bottom right hand corner 9.7cm towards the centre of the short side ( this with the cardstock in a landscape position in front of you). Connect the left hand top corner with this meauremet (the 9.7cm mark) and cut diagonally. Use your Stampin'Trimmer (129722) to score at 9.7cm and 19.8cm ( this with your flat, long side at the top of your trimmer). Or else just measure and score using a ruler and a scoring tool. Fold.

106578 Real Red A4 Cardstock
133699 Flashback Designer Series Paper
126949 Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad
126982 Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pad
102283 Versamark
101930 Iridescent Ice Embossinng Powder ( all stamped images were heat embossed with this)
132969 On Film Framelits
130921 Squares Collection Framelits
3.2cm Circle Punch
3.5cm Circle Punch
133001 Retro Fresh Washi tape
131152 Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon ( cut in half lengthwise)
 I used retired products for the Paper Clip and the Die Cut letters but suggest the BRAND NEW Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz Dies (133725) and the Basics Hodgepodge Clips (133765) as replacements.

The assembly of the card is straight forward, but please ask away if you have any questions!

Tomorrow I will have the project list for the very easy male Birthday card!
