Z Fold Pop Up Birthday Card

Today is my day to make birthday cards, and since I like to make cards with unusual folds, I partially cased a card by Dawn G.
It is a Z-fold card with some pop up balloons- a wonderful birthday card for any gender.

The base is a 4 1/4 piece Calypso Coral scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2, then folded at 5 1/2 and folded back at 2 3/4 to form a Z.
A 2 1/2 by 4" piece of Gold Foil and a 2 1/4 by 3 3/4" piece of retired birthday DSP is adhered.
A 1 by 11" strip of Calypso coral card stock is also scored and folded at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2" .  On that strip a cluster of stars, is randomly stamped using Calypso coral ink. It is then adhered to the card front, with the other end adhered to the back of the card

Three pieces of window sheet 3" by 1/8"  are adhered to the back of this strip, and balloons attached to them using a glue dot.

The balloons are punched using the Balloon Builder punch - in Gold foil, Bermuda Bay, Mossy Meadow and DSP.  Tiny bows made with white Baker's twine are adhered to the base of each balloon.

This is the front half; below is the back half

On the back of the card I placed a piece of Whisper White so that a personal note can be written.


Stamps: Balloon Celebration, Party Pants (retired SAB)
Inks: Calypso Coral, Black Memento
Papers: Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Mossy Meadow, DSP (retired), Gold Foil, Whisper White
Accessories: Balloon Builder Punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, window sheets, dimensionals, glue dots, white Baker's Twine
