Set Sail Graduation Card!
I was in need of a graduation card and as I skimmed the New Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog for a stamp set or bundle that fit the bill, I realized the sentiments from the Sailing Home Bundle would work perfectly! I had created the 6×6 card base a few weeks back and just never finished it.
So, when I sat down to create for the Stamp Review Crew hop, I started with a 6 x 6 canvas and graduation card in my mind.
Cut a piece of Night of Navy 12 x 12 Cardstock to 6 x 12. Score and fold at 6″.
Cut a piece of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
Cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 4. Use a Stamping Sponge to apply Seaside Spray Classic Ink.
Temporarily adhere both pieces together with a small piece of washi tape and zip through a die-cutting machine tucked inside the High Sea 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere together and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the lighthouse, 1 large, and 2 small sailboats in Night of Navy Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
Stamp the sentiments in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool.
Crop all images, sentiments, and die-cuts with a die-cutting machine and the coordinating dies from Smooth Sailing Dies.
Adhere all as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Cut a 3 inch piece of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon. Fold in half and adhere together and between the Night of Navy and Shimmery White Cardstock with Mini Glue Dots.
What do you think? Does this work as a graduation card? Do you like blue tones? My favorite colors are Teal (Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay) and Blues (Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel). What are your favorite colors?
