|I made this for a friend who recently became a grandmother.|
It is her wish that the baby will call her "Oma", which is the German form of Gramma.
I made this card to celebrate her new grandson and the hope she will get her wish.
I mixed acrylic paints to get the right shade of yellow for the edges of the card front.
I cut the letters out with one of my dies and tried to make the letters look like building blocks.
|On the inside of the card, I put a rattle that I made from using one of my scalloped oval nesting dies.|
I stacked it with cardstock for dimension, and inside I placed little confetti images I picked up at Michaels.
I traced the handle of a meat fork for the handle!
It is a shaker, but being on the inside of a card, it really doesn't get shaken very much.
I used acrylic paint along the edges of the inside of the card.
|Purple and Gold are the school colors for this graduate.|
I used some distress ink on the outside edge of the front of the card.
I used 6-strand embroidery floss to make the tassel.
I found the inspiration for this card on Pinterest.
|I use my MS Word program to print the interior of some of my cards.|
This is printed on parchment.
I used distress ink along the outer edge of the interior of the card.
|My alma mater, Le Roy High School's colors.|
I used one of my dies to cut out the letters and numbers.
I put some black glitter glue on them and on the cap to glam it up a bit.
I painted the outside edges of the front of the card with black acrylic paint.
|I found some nice graduation card sentiments on line.|
I used distress ink along the outside edges of the interior of the card.
There must be more that I can tell you about that has been happening recently here in my world. Let me see . . .I have been cooking a little more and working on real estate a little more. I also started to sort through a lifetime of photographs. I have two large totes full of them. Some belonged to my parents and are of relatives who are long gone now. As I go through them, I plan to sort them and send them along to those who I think would like to have them. Email is a good thing for something like that, and if they want the hard copy, I will be happy to send them. It has been a goal of mine that I have saved for a snow day, but when the snow days come, I never have the boxes of photos at my finger tips. I think I am going to have to change that and keep them handy for times like today when it is rainy or on winter days when we have a blizzard! It is time to get this completed. Now that all of my photos are digital, I kind of miss having the real thing.
That is it for now. . .and until we meet again, may the Lord hold you in the hollow of His hand.
