Graduation Card for Alexis…


 On Saturday,  like many of you, we went to a graduation party for my girlfriend Janet’s daughter, Alexis. This is the card I made for her. On the inside I stamped, “Cheers to You.” I wanted something a little different then the usual cap and gown, black and white card. While this Vellium Glass Card is not new this is my own original design

Stamp Set:            Tart and Tangy

Ink:                           Green galore

Paper:                     Vellium Card Stock
                                     Whisper White  Card Stock (10″ x 7″) and (6 1/4″ x x 4 1/4″)
                                     Green Galore Card Stock  (4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″)
                                     Pixie Pink Card Stock  scraps
                                     Basic Black Card Stock

Accessories;           Chunky Crystal Glitter, 2-Way Glue, Stampin’ Pastels, Dabber, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Large punch, Trio Flower Punch, Paper Umbrella,  Drinking Straw, Green Galore Brad

I first sketched a glass onto a piece of tracing paper. You could use a plastic glass and trace around it.
Here is a picture of the sketch. I know it’s not fancy but it did the trick.

I made a template from cardboard, added a 1/4″ on each side, traced it onto Vellium Card Stock, and scored each side on the 1/4″.  I  then added color with my Stampin’ Pastels and a Dabber on the inside of the Vellium. Then on Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the lime slices in Green Galore Ink and cut each one out. On the scrap of of Pixie Pink Card Stock, using the  Trio Flower Punch I punched a handful of flowers for the outside of the glass. I had some umbrella picks which are sometimes used in drinks so I cut one in half to use on the card. Using the Basic Black Card Stock I cut out a graduation cap and added detail with the Signo White Gel Pen. Next came the tassel made from gold thread held in place by a Green Galore Brad. I cut a drinking straw in half and using Tacky Tape I adhered the graduation cap. To put card together I scored the Whisper White Card Stock ( 10″ x &”0 at 5″, layered the Green Galore Card Stock (4- 1/2″ x 6-1/2″) on and then layered the Whisper White Card Stock  (4-1/4″ X 6-1/4″) on. Using my Snail Adhesive I adhered the lime slices on the inside of the glass.  I glittered along the rim of the glass using 2-Way Glue. I put Tacky Tape  on each 1/4″ seam, bent the seams under and placed the glass onto the card. I then adhered everything as shown above. This card would be great also as an invitation.
