Thank you so much to The Paper Pumpkin and Stampin’ Up for the supplies for this post.
It’s that time again, time for our monthly Paper Pumpkin box of goodness giveaway! I just love getting that fun box in the mail each month. I thought I would do something a little different this month and show you two stamp sets I received from Stampin’ Up and the graduation card I made my sister with them. So, this post is a Graduation Card and a Giveaway.
Just so you know, I was supposed to send this card to Heather back in May, when she actually graduated. Unfortunately, things were beyond crazy here then and then we went to Alaska for three weeks, so I just got to it when I got back from my trip. Poor girl had to wait about six weeks from when she actually graduated to get her card and gift. I did call her though. Of course we talk to each other almost every day, so that wasn’t difficult.
I decided to use two different stamp sets for this card. Not because I’m an awesome card maker or anything like that, but because I knew what I wanted the finished product to look like and I needed the two sets to make that happen. I used the Celebrate Today and the Birthday Blossoms sets.
The first thing I did was stamp some flowers on the inside of the card and on a separate piece of card stock. Then I used my colored pencils and colored them. After they were colored, I cut the two pieces that I stamped on the card stock out.
I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the flower and leaves to the front of the card, giving it a 3D affect.
Then I stamped the words on the card and some other stamps on the envelope. It’s not a fancy card, but I’m still learning and Heather liked it, so all is well. Even if I am late on the card and gift giving.
This is the card set that we’re giving away this month. It’s called Thanks A Latte. Isn’t that fun? We’d really love it if the winner of this set sends us a picture or two of their completed project so we can post the pictures on our Facebook page. Keep scrolling down to enter to win this set. Good luck!!!
