Birthday Card for a Special Friend

Cream side spring card
I made this card today for the birthday of a special friend.  Once again I have used the side spring design - think I am hooked on this fold at the moment, but I really wanted something a bit special.  The fold is a little complicated at first sight - but with the hougie board it becomes quite simple.

Cardstock is cream pearlescent papermania card, and because of the way the fold works, the square is the plainer reverse of the card.  Once again I have made the card bigger than the original tutorial.

The backing paper to the topper and the sentiment etc.  are from my special craftwork cards paper stash!  (which is normally just stash for stroking - lol!)  The rose topper is one I painted myself on gold mirri card.  I finished the card with my last butterfly from my stash, to compliment the rose, and some peel-off edging.

Hope you are liking this fold as much as I am.  If anyone would like the measurements I used for the larger card just ask.

Thanks for popping by
