Screen Divider Birthday Card
I’ve been wanting to try a screen divider card for quite some time, and I was surprised at how quick and easy it was to make. The card is basically a piece of card stock (11 1/2 inches long) folded in quarters to create the four, tall panels. A label punch is used to create the bottom legs, and an optional decorative punch along the top adds interest. There are quite a few video tutorials on YouTube including this one by Linda Parker.
For my card, I started with a piece of Shimmer Champagne Card Stock by Recollections which measures 11 1/2 x 7 inches. The height of your card can be whatever you want/need it to be to accommodate your design. Position your card stock horizontally (landscape orientation), and score it at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, and 8 1/4 inches. (These panels fold in opposite directions so to make it easier to fold, score the 5 1/2 inch line first, and then flip your paper over to score the two end lines.)
The yellow patterned paper I used was from a 6×6 Recollections paper pad, but I am not sure which one since the cover has long since fallen off. All of the stamped images are from the Wild Blossoms set from Gina K Designs and were stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink. The three small birds were cut from black card stock with the Gina Marie Designs “Little Birds” die.
The legs of the screen were punched with the EK Tools Real Estate Sign large punch. Only the upper portion of this shape is punched on the bottom edge of each panel with the legs on all 4 panels lining up as evenly as possible. To help me see how far to insert the card stock to make each cut, I “marked” my punch with masking tape and punched with the tool upside down.
The punch I chose to use along the top of my card is the EK Tools Edge Paper Punch, Large, Scroll Pattern.
This card was made for the current Double D Challenge called ‘Yellow’ A Happy Place To Be where we are to use the inspiration tile below and to make it yellow.
I included birds and floral images on my yellow card.
I am also entering this in the current challenge over at Seize the Birthday which is to make a birthday card – with floral “toppings” (optional).
Thanks for checking out my card project!

This is so gorgeous. You did a great job. I have never made one either but maybe I will have to see if I have all the tools to make one too.

A very different card, on that I never made before, like Verna. This is so unique, that I should really give it a try. Love your take on this challenge.
Oh Lisa this is absolutely fabulous! You did an excellent job and have inspired me to make one myself (as I too have wanted to for some time now!). Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘YELLOW’ Challenge! We hope you’ll come back often.
