Peace, Old Hippie

Hi friends! Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re having a great week! I have a fun birthday card to share with you today that I created with the new Prickley Pear Stamps Hippie Chickens stamp set! I also used the Blobby Flowers 2 stamp set for the flowers on the inside panels. You know how I love my fun folds, and this Inside Double Flap card was just the ticket! I am in love with this stamp set – I’m a child of the late 50s, 60s and early 70s, so this was an instant hit!

I cut a standard A2 size card base from CutCardStock Basis Teal with extra score lines to create an M (or W depending on how you look at it). I attached a panel cut from Hot Off The Press Flowing Ink 6×6 double-sided cardstock and then adhered paper-pieced grass, the hippie van and chickens, all from the Hippie Chickens stamp set and all colored with alcohol markers. I added the sentiment, some flower confetti and a few Dot Sparklers which completed the card front.

I adhered flaps cut from the Basis Teal cardstock along with several panels cut from the Flowing Ink cardstock, stamped flowers from the Blobby Flowers 2 stamp set on the narrower outermost panels, and added gemstones to the center of each flower. The final step was adhering sentiments along with fussy-cut chickens, flowers and spiral elements from the Hippie Chickens stamp set, as well as a few more Dot Sparklers, to the flaps.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Such a fun, fun stamp set with so many possibilities!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Being a little earlier era than you Leslie, I LOVE this, my hubby and I very NEARLY bought a VW, then something happened and we didn’t go through with it, this brings back wonderful memories, thank you. It is a fabulous card and fold.
    PS Don’t worry about comments, I had to contact Follow It to get my contact coming back to me. If you find something different, please share!
