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!

For my designs I use the Gingham Gala Designer Paper and the First Steps Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

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.

If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live. I broadcast live most every Wednesday morning at 11 AM Central Time. But I’ve got some things that are hampering me from going live these next couple weeks – taxes and spring break. So my next FB Live will be March 13th.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared.
