I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Class of 2015 to create my card to share today. I can’t believe that the school year is ending in about 5 weeks, yikes!!
My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #160.
My card design was also loosely based on Pals Paper Arts #248.
I started by adhering two panels from the Back to Black DSP pack to a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets with SNAIL. I adhered a strand of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the panel with SNAIL, then adhered the layered panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used a Post-It Note to cover the “2015” and I inked up the Class of 2015 stamp with VersaMark Ink. I removed the Post-It Note, stamped the image on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.
I used a framelit from the Squares Collection Framelits Dies to cut a square from a panel of Gold Foil Sheets. I adhered the Whisper White stamped panel to the back of the Gold Foil Sheet with SNAIL, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I inked the image from the Class of 2015 stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and I stamped it on a Whisper White panel. I cut the bottom banner out with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish it.
My camera wasn’t being very cooperative with the photos for the inside of this card, this is the best shot that I could get…I simply adhered a strip of Gold Foil Sheet to a Whisper White panel inside.
