I know most of the graduations in my area have already taken place, but I still wanted to show you a fun graduation card made recently with a class. It could be adapted for any school colors, but I chose black and red, mainly to feature "red carpet" on my card. Here it is:
I had fun using some familiar products and one new one with this card. I started with the star embossing folder, but inked it with silver Encore ink before I embossed to give the gray paper a little shimmer. I also embossed my "red carpet" and used some silver glimmer paper for more bling. The new product is from the Painter's Palette stamp set (pg 119 Annual Catalog). We hand cut out the easel and then used some silver foil paper to mimic a mirror. The sentiment on the inside is perfect! That is from the Suite Sayings stamp set (pg 104 AC ). The rest of the materials were odds and ends from my supply drawers.
Have you had a chance to see the new catalog? You can look at it online (click on the link to the right) or I'm happy to send a paper one to customers who place orders with me. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
