Today is my friend, Buffy’s birthday. Buffy is another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from Virginia. At first we were just virtual friends but eventually got to meet each other at Stampin’ Up!’s 25th anniversary convention in Salt Lake City. We have gone to a lot of these conventions (now known as OnStage) together so now we can say we are real friends and not just online friends.
Buffy is an awesome person. I adopted her as my Upline since my real Upline pays no attention to me. Whenever I have a question, a rant, a happy stamping moment, Buffy is the one I go to. She knows everything about anything Stampin’ Up!. If I didn’t know better I would say she wrote the policies and procedures because she knows them all by heart.
Happy birthday, Buffy! I hope you have an awesome day (OBTA & IFLY!!).
I made this birthday card for Buffy using the Broadway Bound Suite of products with a little Paper Pumpkin thrown in. It is a fun fold card so when you open it, it looks like this:
It is called a Pivot Pop Up card. If you look on YouTube I am sure you can find the directions. I can’t remember who I got them from because I found them a long time ago.
The stamp set is called Broadway Birthday. It has a great set of matching Framelits called Broadway Lights. I love this set of dies because it has a die that cuts out the large “Wish” that is one the front of the card. The dies also cut out some of the matching Designer Series Paper (called Broadway Bound) such as the hats on the front and the inside of the card.
The colors I used are Lemon Lime Twist, Lovely Lipstick and black. I covered a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Broadway Bound DSP on the front and in the inside. Buffy will be so proud of me for using my DSP! The cake and the balloons are from a Paper Pumpkin kit that recently came out to match the Broadway Bound Suite.
Happy Birthday Buffy. I hope you have an awesome day!

Jeepers Susan, I looked at the front of this card and wanted to shout “Don’t make me buy this bundle!!” And then you show the inside and it is even more impressive. How cute is that inside! But let’s not do one for Stamp Off! I’m glad that you can create these complicated folds, to show the rest of us.
Definitely a fun fold! Such a great card, for a great friend 🙂 But now I want to know – what are OBTA & IFLY?? My tired mind can’t figure it out!
Best birthday card ever! I LOVE it (and I was wondering how you did the pop up. It’s so perfect.). Thanks again!
