Rich's Birthday Card

Here is a card I have made for my friend Julies hubby Rich who is a fireman. I bought the decoupage some time ago but wanted to make a card that was a little different.

The papers are from two Pink Petticoat downloads called Pinstripes and lots of dots.

I made the card using an A4 piece of card and cut to 297mm x 15cm.

With the long side at the top I scored down 5cm from the 6cm mark, 10cm down from the 12cm mark and then I scored upwards to 10cm mark from 18cm mark and scored up 5cm from 24cm mark.

The using a craft knife I cut between the score lines. I hope that makes sense but if not please email me and I can try an explain another way.

Ideally I would have done everything divisable by 5cm but wouldn't have been able to fit the decoupage on the front of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for looking x


  1. Oh this is fabulous Julie.

  2. Wow Richard will love this what a fantastic card. You asked about Copics E30 (Bisque) it is a Copic Marker so if you were looking at Caios I am not sure if it is in the range, I tend to use Markers as they have such a big range of colours. I get mine from Artifolk of Cult Pens dear. Hope that helps if you need more help or the links e-mail me
