Graduation Shimmer

Here is a different take on the graduation card I recently made for a class. This is obviously a more feminine version. :)

The card base is 6.5" x 6.5" Chocolate Chip, scored at 3.25". I cut the flowers out from the Tea Party designer paper. After cutting out the two layers, I put them together with dimensionals and a rhinestone brad. The graduation stamp can be found in the new Summer Mini catalog for under $10.

I used some of the new Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the Certainly Celery textured cs, the flower and the stamped image piece. I think it gives it just enough glitz without going over the top.
This is a very quick and easy card.

You can turn it into a money holder, by making the base 6.5" x 7.75" and scoring at 3.25" and 6.5", glue the edges of the 1.25" flap and there you go. A nice little card and money holder all in one.

Stamps: Happy Grad
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery (textured), Very Vanilla, Tea Party DSP
Accessories: Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon, Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads, Dimensionals

Very pretty card! You can really see all the shimmer on this card. It almost looks like you used Iridescent Ice ep! I may have to get some of that Smooch Spritz :-)

Kym- what a wonderful card. I love all the shimmer and the non-A2 size really makes it stand out. Great idea cutting out the flower from Tea Party DSP. I will be CASEing this one for sure! TFS!
