Heartfelt-Happy Birthday Fold Out Card

Good morning!
It's time once again for some Young At Heart cards.
Both of these cards are Birthday cards for that someone special!
These classics can be colored as restored classics (like some of my friends do in real life!!) or they could be colored to show their real age...like my farmer neighbor.
Well today, my classics are restored because they want to look as young as they feel!!
The Moped reminds me of a Tom Hanks movie.

Instructions: Other products: Stickles, Spellbinders die, white card stock, blue card stock.

Instructions:  card size 6" X 7".  This card was very easy because I used the pre-cut foldout card and the car images on the designer paper from the Young At Heart Collection...I just had to die cut them!! I added designer paper to each side of the foldout and cut some grass from other papers in the collection to make ground going all the way through the card when opened. I cut out the fence with the moped from the paper as well.  The only stamping was the Happy Birthday Banner and the sentiment inside die cut with the Spellbinders die.  Well, I actually stamped, die cut and sponged color for the flowers and greenery too.   Once my flowers were formed it was easy to put together.
The borders were die cut from a coordinating blue card stock.

Instructions: Other products: White card stock, Stickles, ribbon, 3M foam tape, Copic Markers: G82,YG61,YG63,BG000,BG11,BG32,BG34,C01,C03,C05,B01,B02 Y32,Y15,YR65,YR15,YR02,E95,E97,W01,W03,W05,E42,E43,E44

Instructions: card size is 6 1/4" X 6".  Fold the insert (6 1/4" X 13") and make a 3/4" score at the top of the large back panel then add a  5 1/2" X 6 1/4" piece of white card stock to the score to make a back for the card so that it stands up-right. Cut paper from the Young At Heart designer paper to fit each layer and glue in place then glue the front, shorter fold up to make a pocket in front for a large tag.
Cut two borders out of the designer paper from the Delicate Borders die, one from the Border Essentials and one from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die (for the tag).   Glue the borders on and cover edges of the two Delicate Borders with some pretty ribbon, tie a bow and glue it to the top left back panel.  Stamp, die cut and color the Window Box Fillers, the car, plane, happy birthday banner, greenery, and palm trees. I used Copic markers for everything except the flowers and greenery, I sponged them with Cantaloupe, with Summer Sky and New Sprout Memento Inks. I stamped and die cut an extra propeller for the airplane and popped it up.  My flowers were formed and filled, blue with Prills and cantaloupe with Stickles for centers.  I used some "tiger eye" baubles as fillers with my flowers. The car and pane and popped up with foam tape.  For my tag, I stamped the sentiment with teal onto designer paper and cut it with the Large Oval Die and the mat with the Small Ovals. I cut a rectangle 4" X 3 1/8" for my tag and made a coordinating second layer for it and then glued the Ornate Border to the top, glued the ovals on at an angle and then glued my flower spray at the top.
Thanks for visiting today!

How wonderful are these cards!!!! Mate I'm starting to think you never sleep and on the rare occasions that you do, you dream of making sensational cards. Before I found out you were my sistah from anudder mudder, I wasn't a big fan of the colour orange....now I love it to bits! Xxx

WOW! Robin, I am probably starting to sound like an old record (haha, even that is now retro, right?), but your cards are absolutely amazing, and I am struck by your creativity and ALL the fabulous details. Your coloring is perfect, and I really love those old cards and plane! What gorgeous decorative dies, and I love it all!! Hugs and love, precious friend! xoxo
