Masculine Graduation Twist Card

Blue-Banner-masculine graduation twist card

This masculine graduation twist card’s unique fold is perfect for giving a gift card with it’s built-in pockets.   This card made with the Blue Ribbon stamp set looks complicated but it is really quite simple.  Below I’ve written some simple instructions with tips for getting it right!

I used a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ then scored it diagonally from corner to corner, scored and folded in half.  That’s it!  That makes the card base.  Below you see I put in a business card to show you how you would use this with a gift card.

Now to embellish the card I cut a piece of Comfort Café Designer Series Paper to 4″ x 10-1/2″.  Then cut your paper diagonally from corner to corner, flip the right hand piece over and match up the diagonal cut and cut these pieces in half where the pieces intersect.  That’s the important part, lining up the pieces on the diagonal cut with the same patterns facing each other before cutting down the middle otherwise your dsp pieces will not line up right on the card.

To decorate the front I layered the ‘congrats’ ribbon with matching Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit, a color combination inspired by the Comfort Café dsp.  Since this is an masculine card with masculine colors I chose to feed the Midnight Muse scallop back into the punch and punch it again into the scallop to make more of a star burst type pattern instead of a scallop as shown in the picture above.

A Blue Ribbon Graduation Card

stampin' up! blue ribbon graduation card
Stampin’ Up!’s Blue Ribbon stamp set has become a go-to set for me. I love it for all kinds of congratulatory occasions.  It’s perfect for masculine or feminine congratulation cards, birthdays and even valentine’s day!  And with a color change this would be a perfect card for any young man that is graduating this year.

The green of this ribbon is Lucky Limeade which is being discontinued.  If you love this color like I do be sure to order your supplies now before they run out.

We made this card Saturday at the Crop for a Purpose scrapbooking fundraising event for a local church raising money for a Honduras Mission Trip.   Some chose to stamp the birthday greeting instead and others even inked around the edges for another variation.

The Stampin’ Up! note card and envelope packs are a bargain at only $5.95 per pack of 20!  Combined with this large versatile stamp, punches and the bright Sunshine and Sprinkles designer series paper, this project is super easy and fun to recreate.  (See the complete list of products used below.)
