Delightful Doily Book-Bind Fold for the Crafty Collaborations Birthday Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by. Today I'm hopping with a talented group of demonstrators in the Crafty Collaborations Birthday Blog Hop. If you need some ideas for birthday cards, you're in the right place. 


The card I'm sharing with you today features the Delightful Doily hybrid embossing folder (it embosses and cuts at the same time) and the gorgeous Tahitian Tide cardstock and Textured Specialty paper. I'll hit the highlights of my card, and below are links to a free tutorial you can download and my YouTube video.

I started with a cardbase of Tahitian Tide cardstock 11" x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2" and 4 1/4". The 1 1/4" left section was adhered together to form the book bind. A 4" x 4" piece of Tahitian Tide Textured Specialty paper was embossed with the Delightful Doily embossing folder and adhere to the front.  I cut a 1" piece of Vellum Specialty paper with one of the Elegant Borders dies and adhered to the book bind area.

Another 4" x 4" piece of the vellum was cut with the Delightful Doily Hybrid Embossing folder giving the doily pictured below. The border that was cut out I adhered to the card inside. It was too pretty to throw away. The Happy Birthday was cut with the awesome Wanted to Say dies.

I also cut the doily outline out of Basic White and stamped my sentiment from Beside Me in Tahitian Tide and adhered inside the cut-out part of the vellum.
