HMFMC 191 House Mouse Birthday Challenge


Glitter Text Generator

A Day Wrapped in Sweet Surprises

I made this cute 3d trifold card with a cut file I found in the  Silhouette Store and it is a perfect fit for our Birthday celebration challenge!  It was easy to make and looks pretty impressive...sort of like I worked hours and hours on it...LOL...A cute card base can make a stamp shine don't you think? 

 Looks like our Patch Panda Bear is pretty surprised at that stack ! Yep-a pretty impressive stack of presents indeed! I think the sentiment and the stamp look like they were made for each other too!

 The picture below shows how the card folds closed. I did tweak the cut file by resizing and adding an internal inset of designer paper panels to add that pop it needed. I also decorated the back of the card panels as they end up being  the front and inside panels (the two panels with balloons) when you fold the card closed. I also added some balloons with twine to finish off the celebration!. The card is about one half inch thick, so this is not a mailing in an envelope type card!

This is what it looks like when I start folding it can see that it does have a  small  box that is in the center that has the striped and swirly 3d balloons.  


Our Hostess for this Challenge is the lovely Christine!

You're so clever and inspirational. I wouldn't be able to figure out how to make the inset, but I love how your card turned out. Must be me, but I couldn't link to Christine.
