This card was made for my niece (the softball star) who will be graduating from high school (colors are blue and gold obviously)at the end of the month. It also fits with the Digital Tuesday Challenge to make a non-traditional folding or shaped card.
I got the grad hat template from ARC at SCS. The hat flips up to reveal a little pocket on the inside to hold a gift card or check. Very clever and it was so easy to make! The tutorial had a pull out mechanism on the inside that attached to the gift card but I will be putting a check inside and I didn't want to put anything sticky that might tear it.
I Cut a separate top layer of the hat and embossed it with a cuttlebug folder. The edges were trimmed with a Krylon gold leafing pen and the bottom was embossed with gold embossing powder. The tassel came from the home dec section of Joanns. The image is a digital Anya from The Greeting Farm.
This is the first time I tried using my SU reinkers to color. I put a drop in a plastic watercolor tray and used a small aquapainter to color her in. I was surprised that I liked the way it turned out, but it is hard to make anya look bad, she is just too cute.
