Special Blog Hop Highlighting a Fun Fold Card

Welcome! A group of Silver level Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the globe have combined their incredible talents to share some Fun Folds for today's blog hop! We also are working on building our businesses by making connections with each other. It's a great group of very creative ladies. You probably know that by now since you're about half-way through the hop when you've arrived here.

However you have arrived here, either from Tricia's Stamping Creations or from one of my social media links, I'm very glad you are here to enjoy my creation! Don't forget to leave a comment, I'd love to read your thoughts about today's fun fold card.

Vertical Center Step Card

Color Theme - Misty Moonlight, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz and Basic White.


Start with the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set and matching Penned Flower Dies plus the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper. I make my own storage for my dies in case you were wondering.

Sneak Peek of the card inside and how the center step fun fold works.

Let's Begin Creating this Card:

Step 1: Use the template above to cut and score your 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock.

Step 2: Cut your Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper as follows:
Center Piece - 2-1/8" x 4-1/2" and glue that down first.
Bottom Horizontal Piece - 7/8" x 4-1/8" glue that down next.
Two Vertical Pieces both cut 7/8" x 4-1/4" and glue those down.
Basic White Cardstock for inside card - 4" x 4-1/4" and glue down.

Step 3: With a 3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Misty Moonlight, die cut the scallop edge treatment. Hint! Line up the straight edge with the straight edge of the 4-1/2" side. Run through die cutting machine. Affix as shown in photo.

Step 4: Using either circle punches or circle dies, select 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" circles. Stamp the get well greeting on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock. Then cut your Basic White circle, followed by a scrap of Misty Moonlight and cut that circle. Affix those two circles together. Use mini-dimensionals to affix to card front as shown.

Step 5: Cut a 12" piece of Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon and wrap around center section and tie a bow as shown near the greeting.

Step 6: Making the Focal Point Floral image (Don't give up - you're almost finished!)
  • You will need small pieces of Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz and Basic White cardstock, plus Cardstock Vellum.  
  • Using the outline largest floral die cut the Pale Papaya piece. 
  • With scraps of Pear Pizzazz you will cut the leaf portions again with the same die. 
  • Die cut the floral image in Basic White. 
  • Using the Basic White die cut, you will fit and trim the Pear Pizzazz leaf pieces into position then glue them down.  Let dry. 
  • Using a Fine Tip Glue Pen, glue your Basic White floral frame to a larger piece of Vellum Cardstock. Let glue dry. When dry, carefully fussy cut around the flower edges and expose the leaves so the Pear Pizzazz will show through when you glue the layers together next. 
  • Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen again glue the white and vellum layer to the papaya and pear layer. Weight with a clear stamp block to dry.
Step 7: When flower focal point is all dry. Put several mini-dimensionals on the back and attach to the center of the card as shown in the photo. Embellish with Champagne Rhinestones to complete the card.

Step 8: Cut a 2-3/8" x 6" matching piece of the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper for your envelope flap. Glue down and trim with paper snips.

Peach Mango Sanitizer Holder to Make

Earlier this month when I held my Stamp & Chat classes, I always try to give a favor to my customers as a way to show how much I appreciate them and to encourage them try making 3D items. The theme for the classes were a combination of Christmas in July, Peaches and Strawberries, plus we played Bingo for prizes! 

This favor holder is designed for the Bath & Body Works Mini Sanitizers and is my original design.

One sheet of Balmy Blue cardstock will make 4 holders.
Cut Strip - 2-1/8" x 11"
Score at 3", 6", 7-1/2". 8-1/2", and 10" on the long side. Fold the score lines gently, it doesn't need a bone folder.

You're a Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP):
For the back piece - 2" x 2-7/8"
Small front piece - 7/8" x 2"

For Tag on Front
1" circle punch for scraps of Basic White cardstock
1-1/4" circle punch for scraps of Calypso Coral or Petal Pink cardstock
Just for You stamp from Sweet Strawberry Stamp set
Balmy Blue Ink

Retired Layering Ovals Dies
Die Cutting Machine of Choice

This photo shows you the size oval you need.

After the DSP is adhered, you will need to take your paper snips and fussy cut around the back side of the oval, as the sanitizer bottles are just a little wider than the oval die selected. Start with only trimming 1/16" and gently try the bottle in the oval. You want the bottle to be hugged inside the oval, not sit loosely.

Flip holder strip over and add Stampin Seal adhesive so back of holder will be double thickness.
Fold on score line and press well to adhesive.

I was using up some wider double stick tape I had on hand, but two pieces of Stampin' Up!s Tear and Tape would work nicely. Position as shown in photo.
If you want a cleaner edge on your Tear and Tape, use a credit card to tear the tape against.

Peel off Tear and Tape

Notice how the 1" DSP covered section on the front and the 1" section on the end of the cardstock goes nicely against the back section to create a level surface where the sanitizer will go.

Going with my peach theme, the ladies received Peach Mango hand sanitizer.

Punch out the needed circles and stamp the greeting. Adhere layers together and adhere directly to the front of the holder as shown.

These little holders will fit nicely in a Stampin' Up! Clear Envelope with the flap folded down a bit more.

Ta-Da! 10 holders as favors for my customers.

Here's a close up of the design of the DSP sheet I used.

I hope you'll give this Mini Hand Sanitizer Holder a try. It's a perfect little gift for any time of year. It's also a great way to use up little scraps of Designer Series Paper you may have in your collection.

Happy Creating!
