Cookie Congrats

April 21, 2017

Yesterday, I made a graduation card for my daughter, even if she doesn’t know it yet. So today, I made one for my son. He will be “graduating” Kindergarten this year.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping and clear embossing all of the images for this card. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to water color these images. Once they were dry, I fussy cut everything out.

Then I began working on the card base. I started with a dark blue card base. On the front, I partially stamped a frame in Versa Mark, and then white heat embossed it. I layered some of the images in the frame. I die cut “congrats” from silver glitter paper. I adhered this right under the images and the card front was done.

For the pop up feature on the inside of the card, I started with a white card base. I die cut a “wave” using the puffy cloud border die. Using the negative piece, I die cut another “wave” to pop up. I used the Everyday Pop Up Dies to create the pop up tabs on the white card base. I adhered the second “wave” to the pop up tabs. Next, I adhered the cookie images to the two “waves.” Before adhering the pop up element to the blue card base, I trimmed the straight edge to better fit in the blue card base. Lastly, I adhered the pop up panel and stamped the sentiment inside.

  1. Totally adorable card! It’s so perfect to celebrate a kindergarten graduation! Thanks for sharing with us at Lawn Fawnatics!

  2. So fun! I love that you made the full strip pop-up with the everyday pop-up dies, and not just one small element. For some reason, I hadn’t thought to do that yet! Definitely going to try this out soon. Thanks!
