Hi Everyone! Today I am bringing you a super cute Graduation card! Let’s get started. For this card, I am using a fabulous stamp and die set from Catherine Pooler called Peeking Pets, as well as a cover plate die called Garden’s Edge and a sentiment die called Pawsome Word.
I am starting out with a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card base in Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Next, something I find to be super helpful for intricate cover plates and sentiments is to place Scor Tape on the back of the cardstock before running it through the die-cutting machine. By doing this, I make my intricate die cuts into stickers and find this much easier to work with.
Since I am using Stardream Metallic Gold Cardstock to cut two Garden’s Edge die panels, I have placed the Scor Tape on the back. I have also done the same with Pop-Tone Black Licorice Card Stock as I am using this to cut out my sentiment from Pawsome Word. I then run both through my die cutting machine.
Next, I am using my Misti Stamping Platform with my stamp set and stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I am then using the matching dies and running this through my die cutting machine.
Next, I’ll add a touch of color to my puppies with Copics.
Now it is time to assemble my project. I take my two gold Garden’s Edge pieces and attach them to my Stardream Metallic Silver Cardstock and then use a scissor to cut them out. Next, I add some Scor Tape to the back of my die cut puppies as well as the little graduation caps and the two Silver Cardstock pieces. After that, I place my pups onto the white cardstock, then add the Silver and Gold pieces. I then add my sentiment and finally, the graduation caps.
I love how the Metallic Gold and Metallic Silver Cardstock definitely give a bit of sparkle and add an extra bit of interest to an already fun card.
I really love how this came out! Thanks so much for stopping by!
