What’s your favorite card from this series? Let me a comment below and you may be the lucky winner to receive one of these cards! Check back tomorrow to see the rest of the cards from the series!

Now that I’ve shared a variety of card ideas from A to Z how about a card swap? We haven’t had one in awhile so let’s showcase some of your favorite creations. I prefer you use current products (so we don’t disappoint anyone when they want to recreate your card but can’t get what you used) but it is not mandatory. I want you to have fun creating and participate in the swap! Mail your card to me along with a self-addressed stamped envelope by September 27th. (Don’t wait to create!!!) I will swap out the cards and send you a card someone else has shared. I will showcase all the cards on my blog. I am excited to see and share your creations!  Who’s in?

Mail cards to me:

C is for Congratulations

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! I’m looking forward to sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today I want to share some congratulations cards! There are many different reasons to congratulate someone (a new job or job promotion, retirement, anniversary, engagement, new baby, graduation, etc.) Today’s cards feature a simple fun folding pop up gift card card or money holder.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Expressions Congratulations card ideas for graduation, new job, etc. - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I can honestly say these cards are quick & easy to create! I made this graduation card in less than 30 minutes before I had to head out the door to the graduation party! I enjoy making graduation cards in the school colors which is why this one is gorgeous grape, silver, and black.

Stampin Up Friendly Expressions graduation card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpHere’s the card details…The card base is 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 4 1/4, 5 1/2, and 6 3/4. Fold accordian style and add a strip of Tear & Tape along the score line as shown below.

Fold the card and adhere. Use the Classic Label Punch to punch halfway in the middle of the fold then on each side.  (*Line the punch along the edge of the paper to do each side.)

 

 

Add a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock on the inside to stamp a sentiment or add a handwritten message. Insert cash, check, or gift card in the center slot for a fun pop up when the recipient opens the card.

Wrap the card in ribbon and add your layered sentiment to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used the Friendly Expressions Stamp Set for both of my cards. I love the font and different sentiments in this stamp set.  It is on the retirement list which means tomorrow is the last day to order it before it’s gone for good.

The graduation cap is made with a 1 3/4 square of cardstock.  Take a 5 inch piece of Bakers Twine, fold in half and make a knot.  Fray the ends and adhere to the square with a glue dot.  Punch a 1/2″ circle and adhere on top with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I love the color combination on my next card, daffodil delight and gray granite.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Expressions congratulation gift card/ money holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment is stamped on a piece of 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 3 x 4 Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper.  I stamped and punched 2 daisies on Daffodil delight and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The gold faceted dots add the finishing touch. For this card I added a restaurant gift card on the inside for the newly retired recipient.

Thanks to Ronda Wade for the pop up gift card idea! I will be making more of these for upcoming graduations in different school colors!

Have a great day!
