Vintage Leaves Happy Birthday -a Pop Up Swing Card - Fab Friday #77 & SUO #135

This is a card fold I have never seen before, and when I saw Debbie Henderson demonstrating it on a video on Pinterest I had to try it and my card was a partial CASE.
She explains the construction of the card very well in this video
I used the colour challenge with Fab Friday - Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, and Hello Honey, and the challenge with SUO which is to make any kind of greeting card featuring Fall.
The card features Vintage Leaves, although I did use other stamp sets.

  • Unfortunately because the card folds open it wouldln't lie flat, so the card doesn't look straight.
  • The base is Cajun Craze, which has a window cut out the front using the Square framelits.
  • Inside is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which is scored in 2 places and folded in a valley and a fold.
  • The leaves were stamped in Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, and Hello Honey
  • The sentiment is from "Endless Birthday Wishes" stamped with Blackberry Bliss.
  • The right end of this piece is adhered to the back inside of the card, and the rest folded up.
  • The card is closed and the panel at the front built.
  • The first piece, Hello Honey, was adhered to the Whisper White piece only.
  • On top of this is a Cajun Craze piece, followed by Hello Honey and then whisper White.  All these were die cut using the Square framelits.
  • On the Whisper White piece, the larger leaf if stamped with Blackberry Bliss.  On separate pieces of Whisper White, the smaller leaves are stamped and die cut - one in Hello Honey and one in Cajun Craze.  They were adhered to the front using dimensionals.
  • The sentiment on the front was stamped with Cajun Craze on Hello Honey.
  • The embellishments are Hello Honey candy dots.
