I learnt how to make the top card at a Stampin Up Workshop and adapted it for a birthday card (below) for a friend.
How to make this card:
1. Cut a piece of card so that it measures 29.7cm approx. Fold in half to make a landscape card. Cut a piece of white card so that it measures 14cm x 9.9cm approx. Using a co-ordinating colour daub the edges of the white card with a stamp pad.
2. Cut a piece of card (same card as main piece) so it measures 16cm approx and thread it through the crimper. Glue onto the piece of white card, trim off excess.
3. Using double-sided Designer Paper that co-ordinates with main coloured card, cut a piece measuring 14.5cm x 1.8cm and another one measuring 14.5cm x 2.5cm. Glue the larger piece ontop of the crimped card and glue the reverse side of the smaller piece of paper ontop as shown in image.
4. Using the same double--sided Designer Paper, punch 8 circles with the Stampin Up 3/8" Circle Punch and fold using Petal/Flower Method. Glue each indivdual petal onto matching cardtock and cut around leaving a thin border. Then glue onto card. Now you can stamp words or place embellishments as you wish.
