I'm up on the SugarPea Designs Blog today sharing this unexpected graduation card! My oldest son is graduating from High School and the graduation announcements have been rolling in. I knew that the London Scape SugarCut paired with the Chic Wishes stamp set could make something fun and a little different.
To begin, I sponged some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink onto a panel that had been die cut using the smaller Postage Stamp SugarCut. Once it was blended, I spritzed it with water as well as some shimmer spray for some shine. I also stamped a few of the stars included in the Chic Wishes stamp set at full strength above the skyline. While that was drying, I got to work on the skyline.
I die cut it twice out of black paper and then adhered it together using foam squares. I love creating dimension with these skyline sugarcuts. I showed some other ways during the release that are so fun, too! They are so versatile.
I love how the postage stamp SugarCut looks paired with the Diagonal Striped Coverplate. It really helps add to the postage vibe, I think! The "cheers, mate" sentiment is stamped in black onto the bottom of the blended piece.
You can really see the sparkle and shine from the shimmer spray in this photo. I also added a few sequins for some detail and added shine. Thanks for fluttering by!
