SSS Birthday Flaps Card

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago I shared this card featuring the new Simon Says Stamp Perforated Flaps Dies. Each flap has either a message or hearts on it.

As I was making it I thought it would be the perfect design for my son's birthday card... especially since all he wanted was cold hard cash. Instead of Simon's Center Cut Heart Stamp I used their Center Cut Star Stamp for the front of the card.

I used three different sentiment dies from Simon Says Stamp: Happy Birthday, Happy HB, and Happy Birthday Script.

The bottom two flaps were adhered with foam tape so there would be room for the bulkier folded cash. The top flap was big enough that I only had to fold that bill once.

Each of the 3 flaps held a bill, each growing in value as he opened them.

This boy of mine is very matter of fact in how he talks and so when he said "It's really cool" I got the warm fuzzies. Mission accomplished.
