I started with a piece of Always Artichoke texture cardstock which I folded into a tri shutter fold card. I decorated the card using Chocolate Chip cardstock, Texture Sand coloured cardstock and Autumn Spice DSP. On the chocolate chip panels in the centre and on the 2nd and 4th fold of the card, I distressed the edges using my thumb nail. I then sponged the outer edges with Chocolate Chip ink and added Chocolate Chip hearts to 2nd and 4th fold. In the centre I added the sentiment ‘Congratulation’ from the Well Scripted stampset. I tore around the sentiment and them sponged the outer edges using Chocolate Chip ink. I adhered the sentiment using dimensional.
I then created two outer panels in the centre of the card using Autumn Spice DSP and Sand Coloured textured cardstock. I added twine, hearts and itty bitty heart buttons. For the remaining panels I used Sand Coloured textured card stock with Autumn Spice DSP. On the outer edges, I used the paper piercer, piercing mat and template to pierce around the outer edges. I also pierced the some of the flowers on the DSP on the 2nd and 4th fold.
For the front and the back of the card I added panels and then decorated the back panel with Chocolate Chip hearts that I crushed and manipulated until the cardstock separated to make two hearts. On the front I adhered an oval sentiment that I stamped with the Little Hellos stamp set. I coloured the icing on the cake with Frost White Shimmer paint. I added a small Chocolate Chip heart to the top of the cake. For the outer edge of the oval, I adhered the Scallop Trim Border that I had punched out using Chocolate Chip cardstock.
I finished off the card by adding a flower that I made using the Boho Blossom punch, Itty Bitty flower punch and an itty bitty flower button.
