Celebrate - Creative with Stamps #16 - Celebrate

Saturday July 15, 2017
 
Welcome to mid month reminder at
 
Mid month reminder that we still have Celebrate theme challenge going on.. You have time to enter your creation.
 
 
Sticking with the graduation theme for card.. I made another using the male silhouette die from Impression Obsession.. I took some watercolor paper and added some Ken Oliver color burst powders and spritzed till I got the effect I wanted. I dried and using Marianne tag die cut it out. I added a Gold brad to the tag hole.. I then took my Celebrate Stampin up stamp and added it to the side of the tag. I then mounted the male grad to the tag. I dry embossed the blue and went around the edges with Quick Quote ink to distress the edges. I added foam tape to the top and bottom only of the tag and mounted it to the embossed front. I measured out a gift card and rounded the corners and wrote gift card/money so who ever uses this would just remove the example I made and add their own gift card or money.. I thought it was a good idea. Simple and fun.  I cant wait to see what you all make for a celebrate card..
(funny in the brad you can see me taking the photo.. LOL)
