Happy Birthday Girlfriend

Hi everyone! A big Happy Monday to you! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Classic Crest cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a fun birthday card for a retro friend, lol!

I cut a standard size A2 top-fold card base from Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock along with another panel for the inside, and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut a strip of Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock for the front and a thin strip for the inside. I cut a piece of Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock for the front and another panel for the inside. I stamped the jukebox, boomerang, two stars and two jacks on the ivory cardstock and cut them with coordinating dies. I created two extra jukebox die cuts and layered them on top of each other for a little dimension. I also cut an extra boomerang die cut which I layered beneath the stamped one for just a tad extra dimension. I really enjoyed putting this card together – reminded me very much of my dad’s stereo system with the huge speaker in the living room that had boomerangs, stars and jacks on the fabric! Very 60s, lol!

I embellished the inside panel with some of the retro paper and Razzleberry cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black and layered the panel on the Orange Fizz cardstock.
