Card Tutorial: A Colorful Card for the Grad!


Today the class of 2017 graduates high school in my oldest kid's school. A fresh batch of bright grads to embark on a new journey - such a bitter sweet moment. Time for them to fly, time for us to let go. I remember practically bawling at my girl's kindergarten graduation and boy oh boy, I'm not sure, how I'll be when she graduates high school in a few years!!! But, let's set those thoughts aside and celebrate those who did it and the parents who supported their not-so-long-ago-kindergarteners all the way. 

Such emotional moments call for all the colors of the rainbow and beyond! Let's get working on today's card, starting with a list of supplies. I used products from Richard Garay. Some are affiliate links.
RG Days Time Flies Stamp/Die Set
Amaze Machine
Berry Black True Color Fusion Ink
Cool Caribbean Silk Luster
Raw Gold Silk Luster
Whipped Cream cardstock
Journey Foam Squares
Coloring Pencils
Pencil
Ruler 
Pen

And now let me walk you through the steps. 


Trim Whipped Cream cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5" and fold in half to make a 4.25" x 5.5" card.
Use ruler and pencil to draw the burst design. Fill in the slots with coloring pencils. It's really fun!
Stamp the wrist watch using Berry Black True Color Fusion Ink on Whipped Cream cardstock.
Using the corresponding die from Time Flies Stamp/Die set and Amaze machine, diecut the wrist watch.  
  

Use Coll Caribbean and Raw Gold Silk Lusters, color the die-cut wristwatch.
Splatter Gold Silk to the card.
Attach the wristwatch to the card with foam squares.
Write the sentiment around the diecut with pen to finish.

If you are the proud parent of a grad, I want to congratulate you too. YOU DID IT!
