Grad Card

Hey kids!  Cindy back on the SBC blog today.  I have a fun fold graduation card to share.  I saw a video on Utube for this cardbase but I lost it.  And I'm getting old I guess--because I can't remember the name of the fold.  Don't you hate that???!!!  LOL!!  If anyone knows what the name of this fold is please put a note in the comments :-)  This is an easy one!!

TiP:  You may want to include a journaling spot in your design on this card.

This is a side view of the card base.

 Start with a piece of cardstock that is 5 1/2 x 11 1/4".  Score at 4 1/4, 8 1/2, 9 1/2, 10 1/2.
 Fold at 4 1/4.  Make a mountain fold at 8 1/2" score line.
 Valley at the 9 1/2 score line.
 Mountain @ 10 1/2" score line.

Flip your card over.  Apply glue or adhesive of your choice to the top flap and close the card base.  It should look like the first photo (see above).

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
