Split Birthday Card - Video Tutorial

Hey there! I have two new video tutorials that show how to make a split birthday card and coordinating envelope. Click on the image below to see the card making video. There is also an envelope liner video. The written the step-by-step instructions can be found in this Blog post.


How-to make this card:

  • Start with 7" x 10" white card stock, scored at 5" to make a 5" x 7" card.

  • "Split" the card front by cutting 3 1/2" down from the top and then across to the spine of the card. Then cut down the spine to the horizontal cut line.

  • Front : Green mat is 3 1/2" x 5", Patterned paper mat is 3 1/4" x 4 3/4"

  • Circle medallion is made with #Spellbinders circle dies and a "Happy Birthday" stamp

  • Inside: Green mat is 5" x 7", White mat is 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". Emboss top half of white mat with #Darice Retro Circle embossing mat. Add sentiment on lower, un-embossed half so it is hidden behind front circle medallion.



Lined envelope:

  • Envelope is 7 1/4" W x 5 1/4" T (7 3/4" T when flap is open)

  • Cut paper liner 7"W x 7 1/4" T, insert in envelope, lightly mark bottom opening with pencil

  • Fold over flap with liner paper in place and reinforce flap crease

  • Remove paper liner and emboss top part to pencil line with an embossing folder

  • Bring top edges together at corners and cut an angle to align with the envelope flap edges

  • Re-insert paper liner in envelope and apply adhesive to top edge and sides; fold over top flap and press to adhere paper liner to flap

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you are inspired to create something today!
