Howdy Crafters ~ Today I have been working on a Z Fold Birthday Card that has a twist - I included it to also be a small Journal Album for the Recipient.  Thanks for stopping by - 4 photos in this posting ~Recipe below ~ have a blessed day.

#1 Photo - Front of Card: Patterned Cardstock - Distress with Gathered Twig Distress Ink  - CUTplorations Coffee Word Die - this is the best cutting die and I love it!! - DCWV Adhesive Tan Cardstock - Distressed with Gathered Twig Distress Ink - the white cardstock is a LW Stitched Rectangle Die cut for writing a message.

#2 Photo - Card OPEN - On left shows a Pocket I created with Black and Pink Plaid Cardstock - Stamplorations Coffee Stamps - Versafine Black Ink and Misti for the Pink Plaid Cardstock
Fiskars Circle punch - I created the Tag to go inside using Kraft Cardstock - Left over Rose Flower paper - Fiskars Circle Punch - Folded over the tag - hole punch used for the gross grain Kraft Dotted Ribbon and stamped a STAMPlorations Coffee cup on the Kraft Cardstock using the Misti and Versafine Black ink [A Gift card can also be slid inside this tag housing area.

#3 Photo Show the elements in the TH Slotted Die - which was cut with Pink Cardstock and Distressed with Worn Lipstick ink - TH Die Cut Gears were glued to the bottom of the Slotted die and Stickles Glitter Gel were added for sparkle.

The Elements: CUTPLorations Coffee Framed Die Cut using Black Cardstock then adhered to white cardstock
Kraft cardstock - Misti - STAMPlorations Coffee Cup Stamp - Stamplorations Circle Stamp & Die using the Pink Plaid Cardstock and glued to the Kraft - lots of room front and back for writing

A Scrap of Rose Flower paper was glued to a Scrap of White Cardstock - then I fussy cut around the top of the flower for this Tag and slipped it into one of the slots

TH Coffee Cup Embossing Folder Distressed with Worn Lip Stick and Gathered Twig - WRMK corner rounder - Cuttlebug - the embossed cut was glued to another scrap of white cardstock

A SU Ticket punch was used to create the white Rectangle Stitched Die cut by LW and I glued a scrap of the pink check paper to the front

A recycled Biggby Coffee sleeve was fussy cut for the Happy Birthday die cut by Simon Says - the pink cardstock is a die cut that came with the TH Slotted Die cut - black cardstock scrap was used for the HB die cut and glued down with Glue n Seal
