Hi Everyone! Our Glitter Queen group is highlighting BIRTHDAY’s this month in a Blog Hop!  Here’s a Masculine Birthday card that features the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.

I LOVE this card layout…Shout out to Jan Musselman for sharing! The reason why I like it so well is it uses 1/2 sheet of cardstock for the base and a few clever folds.

In my Video Tutorial on how to make this card, I also show how to use the Adhesive Sheets with your dies..they truly are game changers with the intricate or delicate die cut shapes!



Chocolate Chip Cardstock card base 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2 & 9
True Gentleman Designer Paper: 4 x 3-1/4, 4 x 1-3/4, 4 x 2
Very Vanilla Cardstock 4 x 3-1/4

General Instructions:

Add Designer Paper and Very Vanilla to the card front, gift card flap and inside of card.
With  1-1/4″ Circle Punch (1″ could be used too), take a notch out of the end so you can see and easily access the gift card. With Glue Dots or Tear & Tape, tape gift card section sides and adhere.

To make belly band – With Tear & Tape – add ribbon to center of band. With Layering Circle Dies and Crumb Cake Cardstock, make circle. With Happy Birthday Thinlits and scraps of Tranquil Tide and Very Vanilla die cut Happy Birthday using Adhesive Sheets when die cutting (see video). Wrap belly band around the card – the ends won’t meet but the circle will hide! Attach circle to band using Stamping Dimensionals
