Have you seen those cards out there that look like stacked baby blocks? I gave them a go. All the cards I’ve seen out there use slightly larger measurements though. Rather than pulling out the Envelope Punch Board to create a custom size envelope for the larger size cards, I put my math brain to work and re-figured the measurements so the card would fit into our Medium Envelopes! Yay!
Rather than writing out all the details & directions to make this fun-fold, I shared that information in my Wednesday’s Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of what I created, and then let me know if you have any questions.
Here are the measurements and close-up photos you’ll need if you plan to recreate any of these cards.

PHOTOS OF MY FIVE BABY BLOCKS CARDS
This first one is the easiest to make. I embellished the top blocks with bows tied from the Organdy Sale-a-Bration Ribbon Combo Pack.
Leaving a white section in the back allows for a space to sign the card.
The card on the right in this photo below is the one that I demonstrated in the video. The card on the left is very similar, but I used Gorgeous Grape Cardstock, Gorgeous Grape Ink, and Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon.
When flat, you can add a gift card.
The perfect size for our Medium Envelopes!
These last two I put together for fun variations after I recorded the video. The purple ink for the sentiment is Highland Heather.
