Before I get started, does anyone know how to get my blog back to the old template? I decided to try one of the new templates that blogger was offering and totally changed everything. I can't seem to find any of the old templates...only the new designer ones! EEEk!
I am super excited that I get to make a graduation card this year. My oldest nephew recently graduated from highschool! I followed alot of the same design elements I used on this card, since I was using the same stamp set and paper. As you can see, I un-jammed my sewing machine, but by the time I was done it got jammed again! I think something is wrong and it will have to go visit the sewing machine doctor. Thank goodness there is a Bernina store close by and they can figure out what is wrong, hopefully.
I don't know what the "etiquette" is on how much cash you give a grad, but I thought it would be fun to give him $20.10 since he graduated in 2010. Maybe I am just super corny! LOL~ He would probably prefer $201.0 or maybe even $2,010 but I am not a money tree! LOL!
On with the card...all of the stamps are from Papertrey Ink. I combined two sets; Mega Mixed Messages and Star Prints. For the sentiment on the large circle, I simply bent the acrylic image onto my block. I used the "negative" space from the paper I punched the circle from, layed it onto my block and used that as the template to get just the right curvature.
All of the edges are distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink by Ranger. The paper is super old from K & Co., but I love it. I hope he enjoys his card and corny money! I will be back tomorrow with a new SFYTT from Jen. Thanks for fluttering by!
