Classic Class of 2019

I was commissioned to make a card for a college graduate. Back when my middle child graduated High School, Stampin’ Up! offered a “Class of 2015” stamp. Obviously after using it for that occasion, it started collecting dust. I spied it and thought, “Hey! I should cut the stamp apart!” And that is what I did. I finally thought outside the box. I also decided to use gold foil for the year and I think it is a great fit with this card. I used a little-known die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection that cuts a series of small circles. Using this on the gold foil paper made the circles look like metal brads and I just love the effect! The Take Your Pick Tool was a lifesaver in picking up those little circles and placing them on the glue dots.

Zoey is Koalafied to Party!

Back in January, my niece and her family were able to visit for a couple days as they traversed the country during a move from a hilly state to a mountainous state. My great niece, Zoey, had me read a book to her several times while visiting me. The main character in the book was a big-eyed owl. I had every intention of making her an owl card. That is, until I got Lawn Fawn’s Party Koala. And it’s so stinkin’ cute!
