I couldn’t wait to use the 3-point fancy fold for my Mom’s 88th birthday card. I’ve used the gorgeous Hand-Penned DSP as the star of the show. Why? Because my Mom loves flowers and those soft colors will make her smile.

One of my lovely team members, Lisa Lepine, recently created a Christmas card with the 3-point fancy fold. As soon as I saw it, I knew I would adapt the fold for Mom’s birthday card. Thanks for the inspiration Lisa. Because Mom likes to display her cards for a few days, this fold is perfect.

Mom also loves nature, flowers and wildlife. Because I incorporated a little yellow in the card, she will know it came from my heart to hers.

You could add as much or as little to this card to make it your own. You guys know I love to step things up a notch. And of course I had to make it extra special for her birthday.
