Tri-Panel Birthday Card

It's Birthday Time!  My youngest son is turning 32 on Sunday, how is that even possible?  I think I say that every year, but every year I think it all over again.  Ha!

We're going out for lunch today though and celebrating a day early.  With his night shift hours we squeeze in time when we can.  I'm totally looking forward to today!

Chocolate Chip - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Pear Pizzazz - 5" x 3 3/4"
Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (cut 3) - 3 1/2" x 1 1/2"

Whisper White - Sentiment - I stamped the sentiment from Truly Tailored and punched it with the matching punch, then trimmed it with my snips up to the line, then punched another from Chocolate Chip.

I popped up the panel layer with Stampin' Dimensionals and also popped up the sentiment and mat with Dimensionals as well.

Inside:  Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4" - stamped with another stamp from Truly Tailored.

Check out the back.  I always put a stamp on the back so people know I made the card.  When using a dark cardstock, most inks just don't show up, so I'll usually cut out a small piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla and stamp on that and attach.  This time, I decided to work with the fun punch that came with this bundle.  I love how it turned out!!

Oh, one more thing... my heart was set on using the Designer Series Paper True Gentleman but I managed to order the cardstock instead of the DSP... Argh!  So, as you can see, the Coffee Cafe paper works pretty good!

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a blessed Saturday!

  1. Fun! I hadn't noticed you didn't use the DSP except I knew the middle panel was not in the pack and wondered where it came from. I liked it! Anyway, the Coffee Break paper works just as well! Love the inside.

    Not sure why as I like three paneled cards but when I make them I don't like them as well. Same for banners. Whatever....

    Have a good birthday luncheon.

    1. I had a hard time deciding on DSP. Thankfully the Coffee Break paper worked well for a masculine look. All three of these are from Coffee Cafe. The sides we never look at. LOL

      Waiting for the boy to come over now. My tummy says it's hungry!
