What a beautiful rainy day here in Alabama, so I wanted to share with you a couple more graduation cards that you can make and have on hand using the Large Letters framelits. I am going to show you two cards featuring them and some Designer Series Paper. I actually made two cards at once when I did this both with different looks. The first card I created was a shaker card and the other a more simple card that you can create using the left overs. Here’s a look at my cards for today.
Tips & Tricks:
- Take your Designer Series paper (here I used the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper) and figure out where you want your words to go. Once that is done take the Large Letters framelits and cut them out using the Big Shot. Save the die cuts you will be using them on another card.
- Attach the window sheet behind the negative space and then take your tweezers and add adhesive behind the small parts of the letters, for example the R, A, & D have pieces that need to be placed back in so that they read the letters. Once this is set to the side to dry work on the other card.
- I took the new Oh My Stars Textured Impression Embossing Folder and ran a piece of Dapper Denim through the Big Shot. I attached the GRAD cut outs onto this piece using foam Adhesive strips.
- This was attached to my card base along with a 1″ strip of Whisper White Cardstock after stamping Congratulations (from Guy Greetings) in Dapper Denim Classic Ink.
- This was attached to my cardbase (Tranquil Tide) that was cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
- Back to the shaker card. The little pieces should be dry at this point and you can start working on the shaker card. I first placed foam strips where I needed them behind the card front to pop up the card. I took a tissue and went around the inside edges of the strips to make them not sticky. I also did this again with my embossing buddy to control the sticky and the static cling on the window sheets.
- I then filled with metallic sequins and attached to the card base (Dapper Denim). Next I took a scrap of whisper white and stamped the sentiment from Teeny tiny wishes and punched it out using the Classic Label punch.
- The trickiest part of doing the shaker card was getting the backing off the strips and not throwing sequins around the room. Which I have done.
To finish off the cards I stamped Grad on the envelope flaps using the Letters for You stamp set that coordinates with the Large Letters framelits. Next thing they were popped in the mail and ready to go.
