Make A Medallion Fun Fold

I received a swap from Mary Alice Bellis recently that convinced me to get the Make a Medallion stamp set!  You can’t really “purchase” that set- but it’s available for just 2 more weeks through Sale-A-Bration.  FREE with any $50 purchase!

Look at this Fun Fold!!  I’d never seen one like this & it’s pretty special!  Thanks, Mary Alice, for such a great idea!  She’s got a Marvelous blog, by the way!

This is 3-step stamping!  Simple to do.  All the images fit inside each other to make this beautiful design.  You’ll find lots of layers in this Fun Fold Card, with plenty of room to write your message.

This white page opens up, too!

Would you like to make this card?  There’s still lots of room in my March Cards, Etc. Classes!  3 classes to choose from:

  • Saturday, March 25th at 11 am or again at 2 pm
  • Monday, March 27th at 10 am

If you’re an On-Line Customer and would like to make this card, place a $50 order on my site and select the Make a Medallion set for FREE.  I’ll send you the basics to make this card, cut & scored, along with directions!  You’ll just need to do the stamping.

Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st, so you need to act fast to get this set!

Here’s another set that fits perfectly inside the Medallion:  Thoughtful Banners.Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set

This set has everything!  I was thinking graduation when I made this:

Class of 2015

Class of 2015 CardHere’s one of the cards we made at club this weekend.  A graduation card that holds money- exactly what they need most!

Createwithcheryl.me Class of 2015

Open it up and it looks like a file folder.  The Night of Navy is beautiful embossed in Silver.  I bought the Confetti Stars Border Punch especially for this card!  So glad I did!

Here are the details:

  • Paper:  Night of Navy -8 1/2 X 9 3/4- (save the extra piece to punch the confetti stars on) then score at 3 1/2 & 7 being careful to score along the shortest side, Brushed Silver (8 1/2 X 1 3/4)
  • Stamps:  Class of 2015, BYOP
  • Extras:  Silver Embossing Powder, Square Framelits (first I punched out #6 square, embossed it, then cut it again with #5 square to leave you some margin for being crooked), Confetti Stars Border Punch, Dimensionals to pop up the front sentiment, Envelope punch board:  punch the left inside corner then punch again at 3″.
