Joy Fold Card for a birthday

Good morning friends and followers,

Are you enjoying some lazy summer days? I am a few days in to my summer holiday and I'm loving every minute of it! The weather is shifting- but I don't mind. Rainy days are crafting days- so I'm enjoying them 

I wanted to show you a card I made for the june edition of Ett Trykk Magazine.

 I used Pion Design Alma's Sewing Room papers- Blue Room 6x6 for this card. The punch used around the edges of the cardstock is by Martha Steward. The beautiful medallion is from the Live & Love Craft Store.

The stamp is Tilda with big tulips by Magnolia. I colored her with distress ink pads and markers. 
The sentiment means "happy birthday" and is by  Norsk Stempelblad AS.

Flowers are WOC, the charms are from my stash, the swirls are cut out from a heart swirl die by Memorybox. 

This is a custom order for a good friend of mine, she wanted to give a card for her friend's 40th birthday. Her friend loves the Norwegian poet Kolbjørn Falkeide, so she gave me one of his beautiful poems about friendship to put inside the card. The swirl stamp is by Stempelglede.

You can find the tutorial in THIS youtube video from Splitcoast stampers. I adjusted the size to make it bigger and to match the punch size.

Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, enjoy your summer days!
