Paper Escape: May

Paper Escape

Sometimes I just need a paper escape. I love to get a box of goodies in the mail each month. This month I created a graduation card with my Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Graduation Card:

  1. Start with a gray card stock base use the included pre cut card or cut a letter size sheet in half and score the center
  2. Stamp paint splatters with white or gray ink onto the front of card with the include stamp and ink
  3. Cut 3 paper banners from scrapbook paper
  4. Punch out a 2.5 inch circle and small star from silver glitter paper
  5. Adhere paper banners and ribbon strips to card
  6. Use dimensional adhesive to add the silver circle
  7. Add a sticker from the kit and the silver star on top the circle
