The card base is created from a strip of cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 11 1/2" plus a piece of cardstock cut at 2 3/4" x 4 1/4".
Along the long side of the 11 1/2" strip... score at 1/4", 3 3/4" and 7 1/4".
Now place your piece with the short side and the 1/4" strip to the top into your score board. Score a line at 5/8" from the top down to the last score line, leaving the bottom panel untouched.
Now remove the 5/8" strip you just created, leaving the last panel whole!
Adhere the small piece you cut earlier to the 1/4" strip of the long piece and fold in Z-form.
You just created your base :-)
I added sunset colored cardstock from Close to My Heart to each panel each one cut about 1/4" smaller than the base. You need to cut 2x for the front panel, 2x for the middle panels and 1x for the back panel.
The marble paper was again cut about 1/4" smaller than the cardstock pieces.
It is up to you how much decoration and embellishments you like to ad to your card. I kept it simple and adhered one white piece with the little crazy cake and one bigger piece of white cardstock to is, so you have a place to write your message. A "Happy Birthday" die-cut on the front and in the middle of the card finished this project off.
