Sense of Time Tri-fold Shutter Card

I needed an extra special card for a big birthday today.   I chose Sense of Time as the main stamp set.  I changed the tri-fold shutter card a little bit by making the front solid.

Here's the card standing up -- notice how the folds alternate between valley and mountain folds and how the middle fold is opposite of the top and bottom where they are aligned. 

I used More Mustard, Always Artichoke and Really Rust on this card, along with the retired Juntos Designer Series Paper.  I used my aqua pen and watercolor crayons to give the clock an antiqued look.  The following photo shows the card closed.

This card is loaded with embellishments.  I used Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, circle brads, silver brads and twill tape on the front and Always Artichoke brads in the middle of the card.  Assorted punches were also used -- several circles, the ticket corner punch and the blossom bouquet triple layer punch (the flames on the candles).

Birthday Greetings (on the twill tape) came from On Your Birthday.  Make a Wish came from Mini Mates and The More Candles the Bigger the Wish stamp is from Whimsical Words.  The 5 and the 0 came from Alphadot Numbers.  But, you could use any small stamp in those spots.  All of the other stamps are from Sense of Time.

Here is the card laid flat so you can see each panel fully.

Thanks for looking!
