Congrats Grad!

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone! Can't believe it is June already!  Rosemary here today with a slimline card that I made for my nephew who is a high school graduate this year.  I used the Headline Type alpha die set and the graduation cap from the Spring Birdie die set to make my card.

Slimline cards are kind of the rage right now and this is my third time making one.  I think the hardest part about making one is getting the dimensions right when you cut the cardstock!  Because this card is for a guy I decided to keep it super simple.  I used his school colors of red, navy and white with a little touch of silver.  Now as you look at the card you don't see the silver, but it is there.  Before adhering the die cut letters to the white cardstock I foiled 'congrats grad' in silver using all the letters.  Below is a photo that shows you the silver foiling.  It is just a fun little detail that you will notice if you look at the card closely.   Once I had all the foiling and adhering of letters done I simply finished the card by adding the graduations caps in blue and red to the O and D.  I cut some navy cardstock to mat the white piece and then adhered it to a white cardstock base.  I hope my nephew likes his card!
