Creation Station - Unique Folds Blog Hop!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! This month our Creation Station group is creating Unique Folds! And I'm super excited about this Hop! I Love, Love, Love a cool and different fold. I've been trying to incorporate fun folds in my classes for quite a few months now because they just have that WoW factor!! And I think everyone is excited when they open a card that has the WoW!

So the card I created today is simple, but still has that unique fold on the inside! I needed a couple graduation cards - and the new set, Above the Clouds was a perfect choice!

So for the card front I used a Whisper White Stitched Circle with some 'background' clouds in Pool Party ink. And then I stamped a Hot Air Balloon with the new Pretty Peacock ink, and punched it out with the new Hot Air Balloon punch. The Hot Air Balloon basket is stamped with Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake cardstock, and punched with the same punch.

And I love the saying, 'You're off to great places!' - especially for a graduation card! And it fit just perfectly into the Classic Label Punch! A bit of Crumb Cake Twine with Crumb Cake Cardstock was the perfect in between of the Pretty Peacock Designer Series Paper to tie it together.

And then for the Fun Fold inside - Like I said, it's a simple fold, but just perfect for a gift card or stash of cash! 

The Whisper White piece started as a 4" x 11". It was scored at 5 1/4", 6 1/4" and 7 1/4" to create the middle section. I used a little Tear and Tape to adhere the center and then punched with the same Classic Label Punch to create the money holder! - A super easy Fun Fold card center, and super functional!!

Here's a little closer look at the little pocket for the inside - so cool, huh?!

And, if you've stayed with me through the whole post - I have a question for you! How much do you think is an appropriate amount of money for a high school graduate? $50, $100?? Just curious what others would send!

I can't wait to see what kinds of other unique folds are in store for us on the rest of the hop!
