Graceful Grace

GracefulGlasswmLast Saturday I was at a crop and needed to make a quick Thinking of You card for a friend’s grandmother who just found out she had cancer.  I was already playing with the Graceful Glass Vellum paper that is in the new catalog on page 165.  I also used the Stampin’ Blends of Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie with both light and dark shades for both to color the design.

I started the card with Whisper White cardstock 5 1/2′ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  I then added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then a Whisper White layer 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I backed the vellum piece with Night of Navy cardstock adhering it with mini glue dots.  I stamped the Thinking of You in Memento Tuxedo black inklaying it with Night of Navy and Whisper white cardstock, but unfortunately the sentiment stamp is not a Stampin’ Up one.


I took the picture with my phone, so I’m thinking that is the only reason for the white dots, as the card didn’t have any white spots on it!

The supplies I used are :

Graduation Card

Sarah wmHope you had a good Saturday. Just got back from a beautiful wedding of two people who are truly made for each other.

I have enclosed a card that I made for a special friend’s daughter who graduated this year. I used some new Stampin’ Up products and some previous products. I used a new framelet to make the name with.  It is the Layering Alphabet Edgelits which also come in a bundle with the Lined Alphabet stamp set.  The colors I used were Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock that was put on a Whisper White base card.  The flower unfortunately is not a SU product as the majority of my punches are still packed in the POD till we get our house all put back together.
