The finished size of the card is 4 5/8” x 6 5/8”. The DSP was cut using Matting Basics A –Die #6. “Elegant Labels 4” Die #4 was cut from White cardstock and adhered over the DSP. On the center of the card I added the Radiant Rectangles Die #4 from white cardstock.
The book is cut from Labels 7 Die #2. I traced the outside of the die on Red cardstock and cut it out by hand. I die cut the Blue book and adhered it to the red book. I used Stickles Candy Cane Glitter Glue along the red edge of the book. Folding printer paper 6-8 times and cut it out using Die #2. Then, I cut off the edge where it was embossed. I used my computer to print out the name and year on the top page. Cut it out like you did the other pages. Adhere the pages together and gently pull the pages over your scoring tool to give them some shape. Glue to the book.
The leaves are a combination of Dies and digi graphics. I sponged the leaves in yellow and 2 shades of green. I used red and blue colored pencils on the leaves to tie them in to the other colors on the card. Use a “Sakura Pinpoint Roller Quickie Glue Pen” to add glitter the leaves. Stickles Eucalyptus Glitter Glue was used on some of the leaves. The Fronds are punched out of white and glittered with Dazzling Diamonds.
The graduation hat was stamped twice on blue cardstock and cut out and put together using Dimensionals. The tassel was made using “Red DMC Cotton Pearl Thread” and glued to the hat.
The roses are from Spellbinders Rose Creations Dies. They were cut from white cardstock. When dry, I sponged Red ink over them and added glitter.
