Graduation Cap Flip Card



I love playing with new craft toys and I recently finally got my hands on three of the new Sizzix flip card dies: flower, heart, and diamond.  After cutting out several of each design, I realized that the diamond one looked like a graduation cap.  Since I recently acquired a Darice embossing folder with the word 'Congrats' on it, I decided to put the two products together and create one last graduation card.  I started with cardstock that has an inner core color so that when you impress designs on it; the design can be revealed by sanding the paper. First I die cut the diamond flip card (can be cut from an 6"x 8" piece) and then embossed it in the folder.  I had to emboss the bottom a second time to complete the pattern.  Next I sanded (with sand paper) the embossed design to bring out the under color.  I stamped , colored, and punched out the Dandelion Designs monkey graduate.  (Note: The edge of the circle was colored by rubbing an ink pad on the edge and smudging.)  The Hero Arts label  desgin was stamped on white cardstock and then the words (TPC Studio) were stamped inside. (The ends of the label design were cut off.).  The label and monkey were raised on pop dots.  Finally, I added American Crafts ribbons to the top and bottom of the card and attached an embroidery floss tassel (with a Pebbles glitter dot) using Beacon Fabri-Tac glue. This graduation card took very little time to create because of the Sizzix die and Darice embossing folder; both of which can be purchased at Ben Franklin Crafts.  I hope you liked this post and will return to this blog again to see how I used the other new Sizzix dies. I wish you happy days of crafting!

My site has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd definitely

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
