80th Birthday Exploding Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  Recently I went on a lovely trip to Ireland for a big family party. My lovely Aunty Sally was 80 so I had to make a very special card. I have made exploding box cards before and this was I really loved making. 


Nigezza Creates With Stampin' Up! Exploding Box 80th Birthday Card using Daisy Punch


Measurements and Materials

  • Card size when collapsed 7" x 5"
  • One sheet of Crumb Cake card stock 
  • Score on the long side @ 2 1/2" - 5" - 7 1/2" - 10"
  • Score on the short side @ 4"
  • Trim the card stock down to 7" x 10 1/2"
  • The long strip will be cut in half and then 4 strips will be made 
  • The strip will be trimmed to 1/2" either side of the score lines
  • This will make 4 supports that will be stuck across the box which is what the decorations will be attached to.
  • 1/4" strips of different shades of green cardstock were cut to stick the flowers
  • I used Gingham DSP for the mats to decorate the box
  • 4 for the bottom of the box - 3 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • 6 for the top flaps - 2 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • For the back of the box I used Whisper White Cardstock, one on the back to write your message and one on the inside to decorate, they also add strength to the box
  • Whisper White crd stock 6 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • I used 
  • Daisy Punch
  • Medium Daisy Punch
  • 1/2" circle Punch
  • 1" circle Punch
  • Leaf Punch
  • Colour Family 6" x 6" DSP packs
  • Well Written Dies


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

      Envelope Mini From Start To Finish With Photos

      Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


      Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. I have made a very quick and easy envelope mini album. It is made from 4 envelopes and card stock to mat. I have used Stampin' Up! Memories & More Cards & Envelopes but you could used any envelopes. I also used the Heirlooms Frames & Dies to make these stunning frames for the smaller photos in the album. As it was an album for my Master's Graduation I felt a bit of grandeur was on order! 


      Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Heirlooms Die & Frames Mini Envelope Album

      Measurements and Materials


      • 4 cards & 4 envelopes from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes
      • The 4 envelopes were slotted together, you can see how this was done in the video tutorial
      • The cards were cut down to mat the envelopes
      • I cut the title using Word Wishes Dies using Very Vanilla
      • I also cut some stars using the Stitched Stars Dies
      • The frames were cut from the cards as well using Heirlooms Frames & Dies
      • I typed my journalling and printed onto Very Vanilla card stock
      • This was cut up and stuck to the pages


      Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
