Hi Stampers. One of my most popular pins was a Christmas card done with the Twist & Pop fun fold. Today’s card uses that fold to make a birthday card using the Counting Sheep stamp set & Sheep Dies. Both of these are level one items in the mid year Sale-a-bration brochure

Isn’t this Twist & Pop fun fold fun?!?!

The card base is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. The outside and inside layers are all three the same – a layer Daffodil Delight 4″ x 5-1/4″ followed by a layer of 3-3/4″ x 5″ Basic White CS. Using Balmy Blue, Soft Suede and Garden Green ink and the Blending Brushes, I added color to the Basic White layer for the outside of the card.

Using the Counting Sheep stamp set, I stamped the sentiment and the sheep in Basic Gray ink and then colored the sheep with the Stampin’ Blends. Next, that sheep, the fence (Soft Suede CS) and sun (Daffodil Delight CS) were die cut using the Sheep Dies. The fence was adhered with Mini Glue Dots, while the sheep and sun are adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This mechanism in the middle is the only hard part of the entire card and it’s not really that hard – you can follow along with the video pretty easily. The mechanism is made of two pieces of Pacific Point CS – 10″ x 2-1/2″, scored at 2-1/2″, 5″ & 7-1/2″ and 8″ x 2-1/2″, scored down the long way at 1-1/4″.

The panels across the middle each have a 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ layer of Daffodil Delight CS followed by a 2″ x 2″ layer of Basic White that has the stamping on them.

You can see here how the sheep on the right has had the color lifted used on it to lighten the colors. At the time of these photos, I still need to go back and do that to the other sheep.

This close up here shows the light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend that has been added around the outside edge as an accent. Once the color lifter gets used here, this will be much more subtle. THIS is why you need a color lifter.
