Con-Cat-ulations Grad!

May 14, 2023 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Sunday!

I’ve got a cute graduation card today featuring the adorable Grad Cat Stamps! I love how several of the new products from the Summer Release work so well for graduation cards!

I started this mini slimline card by cutting a panel for the card front 3” x 6” from white cardstock and inking it with Uncharted Mariner Distress ink. I lightly inked the top and applied more pressure with a blending brush towards the bottom of the panel. Next, I die-cut the notebook paper die from the Notebook Photo Corners Dies twice from light blue cardstock and stamped the graph paper/grid stamp from the A Cut Above Stamps in dark teal ink on both die-cuts. I adhered them at angles across the panel and trimmed the excess along the edges.

Next, I die-cut a banner from the Notebook Photo Corners Dies twice from dark yellow cardstock and white cardstock. I inked the white banners with Uncharted Mariner Distress ink and heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder. I then layered the banners slightly overlapping and adhered them to the card front, trimming the excess from the edges.

I die-cut the star balloon from the Bright Balloons Dies from white cardstock and inked it with Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber Distress inks. I tied some dark yellow embroidery floss to the balloon and adhered it in the top right corner.

To finish, I stamped the cat, books and stars from the Grad Cat Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I also stamped and colored a diploma from the Woohoo Stamps and die-cut it using the coordinating dies.


I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
