Hi all,

No photo description available.
Welcome to the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop!  For August our theme is Babies and Children.  If you are following todays' hop then you would have joined me from the ever so talented Artisan Design Team member Mikaela Titheridge.

I am so excited to be taking part in this blog hop and my project for today's theme is a 1st Birthday card that is also a take on an easel card. 

For special cards, I always like to create something a bit more fun and a "fancy fold" is a great way to add some fun into your cards.  Like with all easel cards, this one folds entirely flat for popping into an envelope and sending!

I have used the Celebrate with Cake Photopolymer Stamp Set that is part of our Experience Creativity range of products.  This is a great stamp set and is perfect for using with your Stamparatus as it is a two-step stamp set.

I have chosen to use the 2019-2021 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP in Rococo Rose along with Basic Gray, Blushing Bride andh Whisper White for my colour theme. I have included the measurements at the bottom of this blog for you.

Thank you for hopping along with us today, I hope you liked my project for today's Babies and Children theme.  Click the "next blog" icon below to hop onto Melissa Tennison.

To create the card base I have used a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 5, 1/2" x 8, 1/2".  I have scored at 4, 1/8" and folded in half. 

I have opened the card base up (landscape orientation) and cut at 1, 1/2" and 4" to the score line ONLY (this creates the three cut sections)

For the middle easel section, I have scored the 2, 1/8" from the score line.  

To decorate, I have used two pieces of Rococo Rose Cardstock measuring 4" x 1, 3/8" attached to the two outer sections.  I have added two pieces of 019-2021 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP measuring 3, 7/8" x 1, 1/4"

For the middle section I have cut two pieces of Rococo Rose Cardstock measuring 

I have used the following products and tools to put this project together:
