This week’s challenge (CFC54) at CAS-ual Fridays blog was for a masculine card with “designer’ paper. Well, I’m the designer of this one of a kind background paper that features the name, year, school colors and school name of the graduate. It was easy to create in a word processor (type text, format, copy, paste, repeat to fill page) and is quickly re-customizable for multiple grads with the find/change command. I also used it as matching gift wrap for small packages. The mortarboard and its shadow for the card were cut on the Silhouette SD and mounted with an action wobble. The tassle is fastened with a brad painted with nail polish to match the cap color.
I have a new sheet of printables for you today. Like the previous sets, these are custom digistamps presized to fit a popular punch. This set goes with the EK Tools Flourish Square Large punch (pictured below). I’d love to see any cards or other projects you make with these!
Update: Lindsay over at Frugal Crafter shows a great technique for using this punch for borders. If you have this punch you’ll want to check out her video.
I think I’ve found my style and it’s definitely clean and simple. Here’s another card I made for the CAS-ual Fridays CFC50 trees or flowers challenge.
This features another Darice embossing folder, “Leafy Tree,” the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die and a computer printed character from the free sentiments font Pea Dawn Doodles Too, which I edited in Inkscape to fit the shape better.
