Hi! Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway and I am so excited to show you a Graduation Card I made. This card design can work for many different cards as well.
My original plan was to use this card base found on Birthday Bash sized to 5.06 inches. I added an owl at 1.82 inches and the circle image at 2.76 inches from Happy Graduation. I welded 2012 using numbers from Birthday Bash.
I took a piece of 6x12 cardstock and scored it at 4, 6 and 8 inches. I used my paper cutter to slide about 2 1/2 inches in the middle of the 6 inch score.
My plan was to adhere the black welded numbers to the card and then pop-dot the white ones on top. Instead I used the black layer as a guide and just stuck the numbers down.
I used a ribbon to hold the flap flat so the inside of the card would be easier to see ~ the gift card covered up the letters so it was hard to tell what it said. If I did not use the big circle cut, I would have left the flap untied.
In review, I would have preferred having the black numbers behind the white or I could have inked the edges black. I sometimes make a mess inking small pieces so I left them alone. If I had some school scrapbook paper with a small pattern on it, I would have cut a mat for behind the numbers. My go-to store was out. Our colors are blue, black and white with a little silver. In hindsight, silver would have been a good choice, but I like it the way it is!
Thanks Sheila for having me over today!!!~
