Fun Flip and Fold Birthday Card!

Good Morning All!

It is Pam sharing with you today!

I was watching a YouTube video on fancy fold cards and came across this cute Flip and Fold card by Janie.  This is the link for that video if you would like to watch it.  I thought it was such an adorable card and it would give me a chance to use the Birthday Cake with Pedestal die and a bunch of bright and happy designer paper.
Designer Steps:

 1.  Cut a piece of yellow card stock 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
 2.  Cut a piece of green card stock 3 1/2 x 10. Score at 5
 3.  Cut 4 pieces of DP 2 1/2 x 4 1/8.  I did 2 flower pieces and 2 pink polka pieces.  Also cut 2 more pieces of DP a flower one 5 1/4 x 4 1/8 and a pink polka dot piece 3 1/4 x 4 3/4
 4.  Open the yellow card and glue the large piece of flowered DP to the inside
 5.  Fold the front flap in half and then close the card glue one of the smaller pieces of flower DP to the front flap
 6.  And glue the other piece of flowered DP to the back of that fold
 7.  Completely open the card and glue the 2 strips of pink polka dot paper to the inside of the folds
 8.  Glue the green card to the inside of the open yellow card as shown noticing how it opens the opposite directions
 9.  Close the green card and attach the larger piece of pink polka dot paper as shown
10.  Open the green card and tuck the folds from the front flap under the green card
 11.  Cut out all the pieces in white card stock using the Birthday Cake w/ Pedestal die 
 12.  Use your favorite makers to color all of the pieces
13.  Assemble the pieces.  I cut a few more flowers and one more cupcake to decorate the inside of the card
14.  Using the Expressions Happy Birthday cut out 2 sets and glue them together
15.  Pop dot the cupcake to the front of the card and add the sentiment and additional flower in the corner
16.  Open the card and add the sentiments and addition flower and cupcake.  Your card is complete and is ready to send to someone special!
