Card Folder for 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes

Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes are a great product to make creating lots of cards quickly. They come as a set of 20 pre-cut and pre-scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards and 20 Envelopes. They come in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla, are quite affordable, and mailable. If you've overlooked this product or simply never used it, I highly suggest you give it a try. 

In today's blog post, I want to show you a Card Folder I made for a set of 4 Note Cards & Envelopes I showed in an earlier post. A pretty card folder with coordinating handmade cards makes a great gift for so many occasions, especially if you're on a budget.

To make a Card Folder holding a set of four 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes, begin with an 8" x 10" piece of card stock. With card stock in vertical/portrait position, score at 2". Turn card stock to horizontal/landscape position, and score at 5 1/2". Fold on all score lines using Bone Folder for crisp creases. Open up card stock, place in horizontal position with 2" score line at bottom. Cut out a triangle as shown. Apply strong adhesive (I prefer Tear & Tape or Tombo Multipurpose Glue) to the 2" outside edges, fold up to form pockets. The finished card folder will be 5" wide x 6" high.

Celebrating Birthdays & Love

I am on new product overload! It's true. There are just so many new wonderful, fun, versatile products to choose from in the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure. I chose the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set and paired it with Parisian Blossoms products to create 2 lovely and elegant cards, one birthday and one celebrating love and occasions such as engagement, bridal shower, wedding, and anniversary. In the following video replay of my January 14th Facebook Live, I show you my thought process in designing and creating. I love "creating on the fly" and letting others see how I do what I do - from inception and choosing a color palette, stamp set, and paper to assembling my projects, to adding ribbon and embellishments, to presenting the final project and sharing how I will use it or whom I will gift it to. Please enjoy this video demonstration of two beautiful cards. It is my hope that you will be inspired to do some creating of your own fully enjoying the process, then delighting in sharing your creations with others.

Champagne Foil Sheets are the perfect accent to the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper. Gray Granite is my choice of ink as the color works beautifully with the Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Champagne color combination in the Parisian Blossoms DSP.

I want to show you how to make a pretty card folder as a creative way for you to gift a set of your handmade cards. In the following video replay from my January 12th Facebook Live, you'll see a demonstration of my Lily Impressions cards and card folder plus see a couple more I made previously. The cards and card folder I made in the video feature 4 Sale-A-Bration products - Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper, Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set, and Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set each Free with a $50 order and Lily Pad Dies Free with a $100 order.

Each demonstrator who sells 4 or more Painted Poppies Stamp Sets and/or Painted Poppies Bundles by February 15th will get a free Stamp Set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog later this year. You know I am all about a challenge and earning free products to help grow my business and bring you more creative projects! SO...I thought I would show a few quick cards made with the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in my January 7th Facebook Live. Check out my demonstrations using this pretty set!

 

 

The Painted Poppies Stamp Set and Bundle can be purchased on my website maryknabe.stampinup.net. Please use Host Code GXCER3MS.

These are the Moments

"These are the moments we'll look back on with joy."

What a beautiful sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set from the new Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog. I thought it would be perfect to use on this 2-page scrapbook layout I made using pieces from the Sale-A-Bration Kerchief Card Kit I earned Free with a $50 order. Stampin' Up! kits are always fun, but you double the fun when you find alternate ways to use your kit.

Kerchief Card Kit by Stampin' Up!

Kerchief Card Kit by Stampin' Up!

Kerchief Card Kit & Peaceful Moments Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set on a decorated card from the Sale-A-Bration Card Kit. The sentiment was stamped in Poppy Parade ink and punched with 2" Circle Punch and layered on Early Espresso card stock punched with the Starburst punch.
Kerchief Card Kit by Stampin' Up!
The Poppy Parade rectangles are the back sides of 2 of the pre-printed cards from the Sale-A-Bration Kerchief Card Kit. "Always Remember" is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set and was stamped on the back side of a pre-printed label also from the Kerchief Card Kit. I don't throw away the labels printed in other languages. I flip them over and stamp them with the sentiment and color of my choice.

 

Changing the orientation of your card from the landscape/horizontal to portrait/vertical position is easy to do for something a wee bit different.

Again, I flipped a label pre-printed in a different language and stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Poppy Parade ink.

Shake It Up!

It's time to shake things up! In this January 5th Facebook Live video replay, I use products from the Kerchief Card Kit from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Brochure and a couple of Peaceful Poppies products from the January - June Mini Catalog to make a Shaker Card. It's much easier than you think to make Shaker Cards, especially when you use Stampin' Up!'s Foam Adhesive Strips. After you've watched my video, I hope you'll choose to "shake things up" in your craft space by creating shaker cards of your own.
