I can’t believe my older boys are graduating! I knew it was coming but it’s hard to believe it’s actually happening! This is an awesome card! I would call it a Pop Up Card but it’s also called a Spring Fold Card, Fancy Fold Card, or 3D Card. I just love the way it turned out. The idea came from Calla Lily Studio Blog check out her post too, very talented. I decided on using traditional black as their cap and gowns are black and then Real Red and Whisper White as accent colors. Their school colors are black and red so it was an easy decision.
I made the tassel with red embroidery thread which I had to go buy more as for the life of me I can’t locate my entire stash of thread (I used to cross stitch). Super easy to make a tassel just follow these directions from Martha Stewart.
Supplies used below all Stampin’ Up! (except thread):
- Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red Card Stock
- Real Red Taffeta Ribbon
- Silver Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy
- Versamark, Basic Black Classic Ink
- Neutrals Glimmer Brad
- Curly Cute Stamp Set, Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set
- Basic Black Textured Card Stock (retired item)
- Red Thread from Michaels
This spring Fold Card can be made into any theme or color so it can be made to suit any school colors. Really fun idea and folds flat. There`s room on back to personalize or stamp a sentiment or whatever you like.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Glittery day!
