I have a masculine birthday card today.  I had not made a card like this in quite a while.  But saw one from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrtor Jeanie Stark recently.  I looked in my card file I have for different folds and did not find this one. I figured out the measurements as I went along and am really happy with this different fold.  After I was finished, I looked on my wall and there was the card I remembered!  DUH!



The star of this show is the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I love this sheet from the stack.  Those cars remind me of the beach and the Beach Boys songs!  The bottom piece of DSP is the opposite side of the paper.  I was intending to use the Coastal Weave embossing folder, which is part of this suite of products, but it was not necessary.

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  I layered it on Mint Macaron using the Timeless Label Punch and the Story Label Punch.  It is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and does double duty of keeping the top flap down.

Here is a look at the inside.



The inside card pulls out and there is plenty of room to slide a gift card in there as well.  If you follow me at all, you know how I love gift card holders!  I hope you will give this one a try.  I have included all of the measurements below.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I will be happy to assist you in making this sweet card.


  • Base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/4 and 6 1/4  (It ends up as 5 1/2 X 4 instead of 4 1/4)
  • NOTE:  The two “flaps” are the same measurements, it does not matter which you choose as the top.
  • Front flap bases are 5 1/4 X 2 ( you need 2)
  • Front DSP is 5 X 1 3/4 ( you need 2)
  • Inside card is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
  • When securing bottom flap to hold inside card, lay the card in place before peeling off the Tear & Tape to secure the flap.  This ensures you have room to easily slide the card in and out.  If you are adding a gift card, lay it down there as well prior to securing.
