I think he kind of thought the zebra was real...or at least it should move. He kept telling it to get up. Silly boy. :-)
If you're like me, you probably have some graduations coming up this week. A couple of my cousins are graduating this year. I remember when they were born and was a flower girl in one of their parents' weddings, so it makes me feel a little old/weird. They're both
Here's a little bit on how to put it together.
The base is white card stock folded in half (like a hot dog) to create a card 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches.
The light yellow piece was 4 inches by 5.25 inches. I layered the striped piece (5.25 inches by 1.5 inches) on top of the yellow and then the maroon (or rose red) piece (5.25 inches by 2 inches) on top of that.I stamped the "Graduate" stamp twice: once in two different colors. I cut a circle around the entire stamp and then use a 1.25 inch circle stamp to punch the "G" out. Then use a dimensional adhesive to attach the "G" Glue that piece to the card.
I stamped a couple flowers and punched them out with the 1.25 inch circle stamp.
Then I attached them both above the "Graduate" piece.
I added a "congratulations" sentiment on the side of the layered paper. You could emboss this or use use some type of lacquer. And there you have it!
For the second card, I went a different direction.This card has the same base of a white piece of card stock folded to create a card 5.5 x 4.25 inches.
I cut slits on each side of a piece of white card stock and then stamped the "congratulations" sentiment in several different colors in between the two slits.
I cut small pieces of ribbon and inserted them into the slits, wrapped them around the edges, and fastened them to the back with masking tape.I stamped the "grad" sentiment in a darker yellow, cut it out, and attached it with a dimensional adhesive. Then, I attached the whole piece to a mustard yellow piece of card stock 5.25x4 inches, and then attached the whole thing to the white base. Here's the end result!
I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
