Happy Birthday, Kelly!

Today is Kelly’s birthday! Be sure to pop over to her blog and wish her a happy day.

She is so talented that it was daunting making her a card, I can tell you. So I made a joy fold card as I hadn’t seen her make one of those. Can you imagine my face when I popped round to deliver it and she showed me her latest creation: a joy fold card!!!!! So I kind of wish I could be there when she opens this.

I’ve made a few joy fold cards before, and have described how to make them here. But I’ve taken a photo of the inside, too, so you can see what it looks like.

To make this, I used Greenhouse Garden, some lovely blues and purples and lots of stamping off, to mute the shades.

Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink: Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue, Bashful Blue, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Elegant Eggplant
