Happy Birthday--Variation on a Z-fold Card

I decided to dig into my stash of SU's DSP, and I created a birthday card for one of my friends.  Pinterest has become my "go-to" site for cards with creative folds, and I found several variations on a Z-fold card.

In order to write a birthday greeting, I used SU's Whisper White to create a space for the greeting.  Because of the way the card is folded, the greeting is not visible until the card is unfolded.

Pretty Pink Birthday!

My granddaughter loves the color pink, so I decided to make a really pink birthday card for her!

It's Time for September Birthdays!

Four of my grandchildren have birthdays in September, so I usually start working on cards
 at the end of August!  

For my youngest grandson, I made a "slider" card using some Disney paper and characters.

For my third grandson (of five!), I found some paper with alligators on it and used one of SU's stamps to add the greeting.  I stamped the date of his birthday on the card; when he pulls up the insert, there is a big "Happy Birthday" greeting and space for writing a note.

It's a Z-Card Anniversary!

My daughter and her husband recently celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to make a different type of "fancy fold" card, so I checked Pinterest for some ideas and found a unique Z-fold card.  Since we were all going to the beach shortly after their anniversary, I used a beach theme and decided that the designer paper was colorful enough so I did not have to do any stamping!

Here is a photo of the closed card:

Here is a photo of the card showing the inside.  I included some blank card stock so I could write a note!

Birthday Balloons!

My daughter's birthday was on March 1, and I thought a "box of balloons" was an appropriate card!  I saw this card idea on Pinterest, and I knew I had to try it!
