Graduation Tent Card

Grad Card

   Needed a few graduation cards. It’s that time of year already. Time sure is flying by.  I thought I would start out with a simple card . It’s called a tent card. I made the vertical version of a tent card and wanted it to be masculine. All I did is punch out a square to stamp the Congrats using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Four Square #111632 The  paper used is Stampin’ Up! Whisper White , Brilliant Blue, And Basic Black. Ink is Classic brilliant blue. I used a brad. Then made my own tassle with some dmc floss. 

It’s a quick card to make and I like the tent card. I found an easy turtorial on this wonderful blog right here. There is a tutorial for both the vertical as well as horizontal tent card. She did a great job with her tutorial and it’s easy to follow.

Stampin’ Up! Has there LAST CHANCE LIST out as well as Stamps sets we have to say goodbye to. You’ll find the information right here . Place an on line order with me and you’ll receive the Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea book and catalog for free from me once they are released.

Oldie But Goodie Waterfall Card

Thought I’d bring back the waterfall card. I just love what you can do with them. This one is for a friend. I left the bottom blank so I can write a note on it. But you could also stamp a fun greeting in that spot. Another idea is to make the water fall card with pictures of loved ones. There’s many themes in which this card would be perfect for.

Waterfall-Card Directions

I also made a cute MatchBox Bottom and Sleeve  to hold a truffle. I used the stampin’ Up! heart punch to punch out the top so it’s see through and added some acetate. quick and simple!

I used the free sale-a-bration set Whimsical Words.Using the stamp-a-ma-jig I inked up a few words at a time to get a few on each square using my stampin’ write real red marker.

Shop on my on line web store . Spend $ 50.00 and you can receive the whimsical words stamp set or another product of your choice from the sale-a-bration brochure

 I found a video tutorial on line at You tube that will make it easy for you to follow along and make your own waterfall card.  So just click here to get started if you’ve never made your own waterfall card.

Thanks for looking ! If you have any questions contact me and I’ll be happy to help you.
