This fancy fold card wasn’t a card for a 110 year old. So what’s your guess?

A friend of mine requested me to make a card for her best friend who was turning 55 but she was a twin. There’s a standard joke between the twins that they are celebrating a combined birthday. So… this year they were 110!

I have made this type of fancy fold card several times but have had no idea what this was called. So I went to the most reliable source – Pinterest! It’s a Double Front Flap Fancy Fold Card. If it’s not, just let me know! This card was for the best friend’s twin. It’s been a little while since I’ve used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and the 12″x12″ paper was ideal for decorating this large A5 card. This paper is great for fussy cutting with images of birds, feathers, bird cages – lots to embellish projects with. 

The Nested Label on the inside of the card aligns with the label that is on the outside. 

For my friend’s best friend, the brief was – she likes irises and labradors. So I hurriedly pulled out a retired iris stamp and got to work. There were several retired products used on this card but I thought it was a bit of fun and I wanted to share it with you. I also used the Happy Tails stamp set and Dog Builder punch which are very cute current products. This was such a cute sentiment for a bestie who loves dogs. 

The Designer Series Paper and ribbon are from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration range. Sale-A-Bration 2020 is still on friends. Don’t miss out on the last few weeks where you can get a free product with every $90 order.
