I made this card especially for my niece and goddaughter, Kayla. She graduated yesterday from high school and will be embarking upon a new chapter in her life this fall when she goes off to college. Congratulations Kayla! I couldn't be more proud of you! Her high school colors (my old alma mater) are black and gold. If you know Kayla, then you know her card HAD TO HAVE sparkle! Unfortunately we don't carry Gold Glimmer Paper so I made my own! I die cut the numbers with our Silver Glimmer Paper then sponged Daffodil Delight ink all over them until I obtained the gold color I wanted! I did the same with the background piece as well and the tassle. I made the motorboard using the 1" Square Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and the Owl Punch. I handcut the tassle. I LOVE the soon to be retired stamp set, Word Play and thought that stamp was perfect for a background. Happy Stamping!
