Fun Fold Interactive Stampin' Up! Graduation Card

Creating an interactive, fun-fold, handmade, Stampin' Up! Graduation card was in my heart as we are celebrating our son's High School Graduation.  Homeschooling our youngest four kids, for the past six years, has been an amazing journey that resulted in the culmination of my son and his friend's graduation this past Saturday.  I actually mulled and prayed over what to create for Sal and his friends... coming up with this fun fold hand stamped card that is surprisingly easy, if you note the few tips to make it all come together.

I wanted to go a bit over the top with a hand stamped card that wow'd the young men and women who humble and wow us parents.
Creating this is easier than you would think!
Basic Black card stock:
~ Score at 2-1/8" and 2-1/4" on either side from the edge.
~  Cut at 5-1/2"
~ 3" Square
~ 4" Square - scored on one side at 1-1/2" and 1/4" from the other side.
~ Basic White Thick Card Stock 4"x 10-1/2", scored at 5-1/4"
~  Stamping the Basic White card base with Jet Black Stazon ink and the Celebrating You stamp set on the front and inside of the card.
~  Using the Bone Folder to Firmly Impress the flaps of the black card and white card.
~  Impressing in BOTH Directions on the two folds of the 4" square.
~  Apply the 1-1/2" side of the Basic Black 4" square to the top of the center of the black card with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
~  A THIN line of the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the 1/4" flap to the center of the 3" square across the middle to create the Cap.
~  Punching the Starlit punch in Basic Black and apply to the center of the cap with Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.
~  Tie the Simply Elegant Gold Twine to Create the 'tassel' (see the video for my suggestions).
~  Accent with the Metallic Pearls (or these Brushed Metal accent suggestions).
Motherhood is simply amazing and a blessing.
From my first born and only son to a man and graduate... 
what a gift it all is.
I am grateful for the opportunity to homeschool and find a community to do it together. (Let me know if you have any questions on this!)

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
