Triangle Tri-Fold, Birthday Edition

Card front
There are a flurry of birthdays coming up in my family, so I need to get busy with some all-purpose birthday cards.  This simple triangle tri-fold fits the bill for more than one recipient.  Simple and "masculine" enough for my dad, and/or flat enough to send to my sister in Europe.  Hmmm.... I'm thinking Dad....

I am entering this on "The Scarlet Lime: June BIRTHDAY Challenge" which can be found here.
DCWV cardstock, "Mediterranean Cafe."  Lacy Labels cart. Various stamps from  Fiskars, Cloud 9 Design: "Laughter" & "Happy Birthday."  Memento & VersaFine inks.  Green cording.  Finished card is 4x4" square.

I'm always on the lookout for interesting sentiment stamps.  I'm limited with my printer so printing sentiments on cardstock is difficult.  At the Portland stamp show this spring, I picked up a number of these "Simple Thought" sets for a steal!  30 awesome individual stamps for only $9!  That's the kind of bargain you love!

Wow, Bernadet - this card is so absolutely awesome! I love everything about it...the colors, the design, the sentiment, the unique fold! You did such an amazing job - you need to enter this in some challenges! It is so fabulous! Love, love, love it!! And what a bargain on the stamps...I'm always looking for new sentiments, too :)
