Graduate Card How-To

To get started with my graduate card, I cut an A2 card from 110 lb. cardstock.  Next, I cut a black dot patterned paper that measured 4″ X 5.25″ and attached it with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inch to the card base.

With a piece of orange cardstock measured to 3.75″ X 5″, I embossed with a notebook paper design. Using Crafty Foam Tape White, it was attached to the center of the black dot paper.

Embellish the Card

After stamping and coloring in the owl image with alcohol markers, I die cut the image out with an oval die.

Next, I used a size-larger oval die and cut another shape from white cardstock. I applied adhesive to the second oval with Adhesive Sheets 4×6 inch and then pressed the chunky twine around the edge of the shape.

To add even more flair and fun, I assembled several of the 3D Foam Stars and used the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic in Gold to make them shine! In completing my Graduate Card, I used 3D Foam Squares to attach items such as the strip of dot paper and the cute tag.
