Celebrate or Shine On Sunshine Wishes

Shine On or Celebrate

I loved the Sale-A-Bration item of Specialty Foils.  This week I have a series of cards using these foils and anyone who places an order of $50 or more with a host code will get 48 6 x 6 pieces of this amazing paper.  Until sold out. 

This card is a notecard 7 x 5 folded.  
Back layer is 4 ¾ x 3 ¼  Foil is 4 ½ x 3

You can color this or not.. if you wish to color it...with your dauber, softly and slowly swirl on EITHER  an ombre of blues or pinks or greens onto the foil.  Take your time, add color very slowly. Tip: after you tap your dauber on the ink pad, take some color off onto your grid paper.

Die cut Sunshine (and remove SUN) die cut on from congrats.  Add Shine on to the front of this foil layer and then layer up the card.  OR die cut Celebrate. 

Using the Swirly bird dies cut the foil paper on the “swirl”, layer on top of the copper base. Add ribbon I used the 1/4 organza. This is great ribbon as you can easily color it with a marker.

So if you had a graduate you could pick school colors for the word and the foil or the ribbon!  OR you could color on the specialty paper, I used Island Indigo (retiring ugh...get it quick before it disappears!).  and then cut out the word.

A tip: I used the swirly bird dies and the largest die is 6" wide.  So as the Big Shot is 6" wide I needed to be careful to ensure it was centered...and the last one I cut.. you know it, I had the die off center, it caught on the edge and the die broke (so I have a leaf die now! Just sharing so you don't do what I do :)

 Happy stamping, MaryKate
