GSF Blog Hop Beauty of Friendship
It is the first Friday of May! Can you believe it?! Where is the time flying off to?
It is time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! These are some seriously talented women and I am so blessed to join them for this blog hop each month! I know, I missed some in here…sometimes life just happens and you have to roll with it!
This month’s theme is Brand New. As in brand new from the NEW Annual Catalog! If you don’t have one, please comment below and I will be happy to send you one! I started to use mainly the Beauty of Friendship Bundle, but ended up adding in so much more to make this very special card!
Today I have for you a very special card that I made for my Mother’s Birthday…her 80th to be exact! And it’s today! This is a Double Diamond fold card that I found on YouTube by ME Crafts. She does a great job explaining the steps!
Here is the card folded and laying down:
I used a bunch of different items and the majority of them are in the New Annual Catalog! A few of the items, like the Happy are from the Pretty Perennials in the Mini that will end at the end of June. Plus, I did use 1, well 2, little things that are retired…the numbers. But anything smaller would just not have worked! All the supplies I used are listed below. Feel free to browse my online store. They are some very fun products!
Here is the card standing up!
That is it for me today! Enjoy hopping all the way through and seeing what all everyone else chose from the New Annual catalog! Hop on over to Marieke Bart’s blog and see what she has created for us!

Love this fun fold, June! Such a great birthday card. I’m sure she will love it. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! I sure trust so!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen that fold before! What a super awesome card for a super awesome birthday celebration – thanks so much for sharing 😀
Thank you! I found it last year and was going to make it as an Anniversary card for my folks and ended up making a different one. So, when I was thinking of a special bday card for 80…this came to mind.
Oh she will love this! Gorgeous card.
Thank you, Jenn!
Beautiful fun fold! I bet your mum was very pleased.
Thank you! I think she will be. She hasn’t gotten it yet.
Well this is all kinds of fabulous and rightly so for such a momentous occasion! Happy Birthday to your Mom. Thanks for sharing x
Thank you! It was fun to make. I think I need to make more to really get the hang of it. Lots of detailed folding and cutting.
Interesting fold and looks like fun to create. I’m sure she’ll enjoy the card.
Thank you, Amanda! It was fun and I plan to give it another whirl.
Wow! Great detailed card. I’m sure she loved it.
Thank you, Jenn!
