Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made yesterday. My good friend, Donna Ellis, forwarded some card ideas including this Double Z-Fold card, which immediately caught my attention! The tutorial, by Beate Johns, is very easy to follow and I can just tell you that you'll be seeing a few more of these types of cards coming from me!
I needed a birthday card for a special family friend, Nathan. He's the kids' old Choir Director, so it had to be music-related. I recently picked up the Sissix Sizzlits Sheet Music Decorative Strip and so I decided to incorporate that into my card. After die cutting, I placed it along a strip of Sparkle N Sprinkle's 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (SAT11) and then I applied Fantasy Gold Glitter (G1001). That became the border along the top of the card.
I made my own music note out of the brown background card and covered the stem in Versamark and then heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder (EP107). The sentiments are both from Set 416 - Happy Birthday and were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Detail Gold embossing powder (EP168). The little notes are from Set 175 - Music, which are also embossed with Gold Detail. I cut out the saying with Spellbinders Lacey Circles and applied Versamark and heat embossed with Sparkle again.
Here is the end result:
You have to give this a try - it really is much easier than it looks! For any of the fine products used in this card just pop on over to Sparkle N Sprinkle! Thanks for stopping by.
