For the Birthday Boy

It is my oldest Grandsons Birthday on Sunday, and I have made this card for him. 
I made quite a few cards folded in this way a few years ago and saw a similar type card recently and thought I would try some more to show off Stampin Up's matching Designer Papers.

Paperjay Crafts, Up and Away DSP, Balloon Adventures, Stampin Up

I have used the Up, Up and Away Designer Paper Stack from the Sale A Bration Catalogue which has now retired and the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set which will be retiring at the end of the month.

I made a 6"x 6" card base in Whisper White and made a fold in the front panel of the card at 3". This then folds back.

I made two matching layered squares starting at 3"x3" and reducing in size and then stamped on the sentiments in Night of Navy.

Glue the inner square on first and then attach the second layer to the front of the card (only the left half) lining it up to match the inside one.

Hope that made sense....I think these cards make a nice change and somehow make the cards themselves seem bigger !

Got another one of these on the go with a sneak peek of some new designer paper that I will share with you next week !

Happy Stampin
