Happy Birthday!

Hello!  It's my Father-in-law's birthday and he's turning 75!  I wanted to do something fun and different!  So, I used a z-fold card base for my card.  I've never done a card like this before and I think it turned out pretty cool :-)  His surprise party is next weekend and there will be an ice cream bar to build your own.  He loves ice cream so that's what I went with, too!   I hope he likes it!

For the base of the card I started with a 11x 4 1/4" piece of white cardstock.  With the long side horizontal score at 2 3/4" & 5 1/2".  Accordin fold to make a z-fold card.  Yup, it's just that easy!  And the best part--once folded this will fit your standard A2 size envelope :-)
