Three Clover Thursday - Ship Shape

Whew....Thursday already, a few more days and both the boys will be out of school. It's hard to believe both boys will be in High School. They have about week off before Summer School starts up - both are taking classes to get ahead with their credits. Seems the school keeps adding more mandatory credits, but the day doesn't get any longer, so it's either Summer School or Zero hour to stay a step ahead. Joe graduated yesterday, so I used this weeks challenge to create a card for him.



This weeks 3CTC is Ship Shape....make a shaped card, anything but a square or a rectangle. I've had a few ideas, but just no time to turn them into something. So I grabbed the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! and turned it into a card - it's got a fun shape. I folded my card stock in half and simply placed the fold just below the curved portion on one side so it would open like a card. I embossed the Confetti card stock with the CuttleBug Numbers Folder, then sponged on Brilliant Blue ink. The diploma and sentiment are from the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation Set, stamped as follows

  • Diploma - Grey (stamp off), Grey, Grey

  • Ribbon - Brilliant Blue (stamp off), Brilliant Blue, Brilliant Blue

I used a SAMJ to stamp the sentiment in Blue, then added some stitching using the Drywall Stitching Technique.

Fabulous! Love the colors (the High School I graduated from was Royal Blue/White) - Congrats to your son and Kudos to the others for getting a jump start on HS Credits.

The colors are awesome and I love that embossing folder. I didn't even know it existed.

I love this Lisa! And it reminds me that I got that Number folder and used it exactly once. Wish I had thought of this when I had a graduation card to make Tuesday night. Dang! I love what you did with this.

Love it! I really need to invest in some of those multi-step stamps; they are so realistic...
