Happy Birthday Buddy!!

Hey friends,

 My last post before I leave for my holiday to Rajasthan and Agra... It's a birthday card for a friend made on order.. I absolutely am in love with this fold.. It's a 6-fold card and it's final measurement is 6*6.. As you all are very much aware, I love making big cards so am always in search of tutorials which can give me bigger dimensions or I sit and calculate ( the latter takes ages as I suck in Mathematics BIG TIME).. Being a gift to a girl, I went all out to make a PINK card.. Yea, you guessed it right.. I am back in the PINK MODE... and some green too.. Will post the green cards after I come back.. :D

So enough of rambling.. I shall get straight to the card...

I love love this digi from the paper shelter.... Now a view of the card after it opens up in its full glory and then of course the individual shots... I really need to start working on the whole video thing... My posts are getting way too picture heavy... :D

Now I'll quickly just show the individual panels....

The card as it looks after IT'S belly band is removed...Isn't the PP gorgeous.. My heart broke while using this.. (sob sob)

I've embellished it to the minimum as I really wanted to show off the gorgeous PPs in all honesty...So just a sentiment...

Another panel showing off some sentiments...

The bear with the heart on a panel which would open up vertically.. :-)

Friend sentiments... Love you buddies... :D

Just jazzed up the polka dotted PP with a sentiment stamp.. :)

Bling attack part 1.. I missed doing up rhinestone frames so am doing it on this panel and the one that follows... :)

That's all folks.. A nice fold to try put for those who enjoy special folds..:-)...

Pink Cardstock for base and layering=> Locally purchased
Digi images=> The paper shelter and Sliekje's
Digi Sentiments=> E.T and rest I picked up from the free digital stamps blog.. Don;t remember particularly from whom...

Coloring medium=> Staedler color pencils and glaze pens for the little tweety in the inside panel available at lulupu
Die cuts have been traced and hand cut...
