Birthday card and matching picture frame

As I mentioned in the previous post I took a class at the
Grapevine Stamp Convention from Ruth Burkey on different folded cards. We made a swing card and then did the center of one side with an Iris fold technique. So today I tried to make a birthday card using the same techniques and here is the front of my card. The 2nd picture is a close up of iris fold center. The 3rd photo is the back side opened.

Recipe: Stamps: Printworks Collections Great Birthday Paper: From Stash Accessories: Cut/score tool and Tombott markers

Then I made a picture frame using a blank wooden frame from Michaels that was $1. I used some of the same paper and Modge Podge it to the wood. Stamped my image from MFT and watercolored then used Thick EP to create a glassy look on it. I added her name using stickers and Nesties cut outs.

I can't wait to see her face when she gets her gift! I hope she loves it!
Have a great day stamping! Traci

I haven't been brave enough to try this yet. The Iris fold stuff threw me for a loop during the class so I will wait away before trying again. Great card.
