Happy 70th Birthday – Triple-W Fold

Double-W Fold - Painted With Love

Today’s share is the 70th Birthday card I made for my mom last month.  I had just gotten my Occasions catalog preorder and fell in love with the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and wanted to break it in.  As a demonstrator we get the opportunity to order and play with items from the Occasions Catalog that will be going live on January 3rd.  Yay! This design is what I call a Double-W Fold (Correction – Triple-W Fold) card.  It is an extended size card — 3-1/4″ tall x 22″ wide.

As it was her 70th birthday I wanted to give her 70 candles and remembered the set of candles die in the Window Box Thinlits Die Set.  I set out die cutting candles and was able to fit 35 candles onto each Melon Mambo band.  Woohoo!  Yes……I eyeballed the candles.  They are in groups of 5 so that made it not too difficult.  (wink, wink) To add more color and shine I filled in the empty spaces (folds) with 1″ Painted With Love SDSP strips.

Here is a close up of the inside letters.  They were cut from both Gold Foil and Glimmer.  The Glimmer adds just a touch of sparkle.  Who doesn’t need more sparkle to go with their shine.  (giggle)

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great day!

    This card is so beautiful! I would love to make one for a 98 year old great grandmother. Do you have any tips or measurements that you would be willing to share? Thanks so much!
