Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop April Edition Congratulations!

Hey there! It's April 15th, which means it's time for another Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Yay!

April's theme is Congratulations for weddings, babies, graduations; you name it, we've got you covered!

If you're already on the hop you probably just came from Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar Stamps. I am absolutely blown away by Stella's Herringbone Congratulations Heart, aren't you? I want to make one just like it SOOOOO bad!

Since next month is a month with LOTS of graduations, I decided to go with a graduation congratulations card for my hop project, combining the congrats theme with a fun fold for my monthly swap. I'm killing two birds with one stone, as they say!


I used the B.Y.O.P stamp set from the Occasions Catalog to create a gift card holder card. What does B.Y.O.P stand for? Buy Your Own  Present! This set is a perfect set to make gift card holders for just about any occasion!


When I think of graduations I always think of stars because the graduate is the star of the day, so I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set, Stars Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and the Confetti Stars punch to be able to add a myriad of stars to my card!


The sentiment on the back is also from B.Y.O.P. and encourages the recipient to open the card to find:


A gift card, of course!

The directions to to creating this multi-folded card are actually very simple:

Dimensions: 5 1/2" x 11", scored at 2 1/2", 4", 7", and 8 1/2". Fold and crease sharply with a bone folder all of the scored lines, then cut with the largest Window Frames Framelit. Use bits of painter's tape to hold the framelit in place. Even though you can use the Magnetic Platform when you cut it out, the thickness of the multiple folds of the card will not allow the magnetism to grab and hold the framelit:


That's all for today! Please be sure to click on the "Next blog" icon to continue on to Judy Garza's blog, Stamping With Judy G!
