Hi Crafty Friends,
Who else besides me has a bunch of graduations coming up? I sure do!! I think I figured out I have 5 family members graduating in the next month, whew! I got to work looking through my supplies to see what graduation idea I could come up with and realized I didn’t have much that specifically said graduation or graduate. Not to worry, there are many sentiments that will work and here is one I came up with:
When I looked at the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set it seemed like the Cue the Confetti sentiment would be perfect for a graduation card. I added the appearance of confetti by using the stamp that looks like confetti in that same stamp set. I chose the colors of Basic Gray Silver Foil, Whisper White and Pool Party because I am not sure who will receive this card. I thought these colors could really go to anyone. I used the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder. You might notice the small line in the top corner of the card. Since completing this card I learned a good trick to use when something like this happens. First, it is a good idea to lightly spritz your paper with water before running in through the big shot. This will help it keep the impression crisp. But if you are still getting a line where you don’t want it or possibly cutting the paper rather than embossing you can also try adding a piece of vellum over the top of your paper. Hopefully this will help! I also spritzed the card with a light pool party color and added in some rhinestones. I wanted all these little additions to make it truly seem like I was ready with the confetti!
I hope this gives you some new ideas of what to come up with when making your next graduation card.
