Today I am sharing my niece's graduation card on YouTube. The star of this card is the incredible and elegant Grand Cabinet 3D set from Spellbinders. This set includes 6 dies that you can use to make several different dimensional or flat cards. This beautiful card will even fold flat to fit in a 6" x 6" envelope (but I will be sending my niece's in a box).
To create my card, I die cut two each of the largest panel with the center cut out from Peacock paper from Simon Says Stamp and a Lime Green paper from my stash which I believe is Gina K designs Grass Green paper. I then cut one of the same panel with the center intact for the back of my card. I used the scraps to cut out two each of the numbers in both colors which I layered together; the two side panels; the Hooray background die from Neat and Tangled; and a 1" strip of the green paper to create the little graduation hat. I used the fun Louie's 123 Dies from Lawn Fawn to create the year. I cut two of each color, of each number, and then stacked and glued them together. Once the card was complete, I found this unnecessary -- so, in the future I would just use one layer.
The patterned paper is one of the beautiful papers from ModaScraps Fly and Scrap paper pack that I received in my Simon Says Stamp June 2018 Card Kit - Fly Away. It is also available separately. I cut a center panel for the backdrop of my numbered dies and the skinny Hooray Die front out of this pretty paper.
Assembling this card is very straightforward as you will see in the video. I am really happy with how it turned out.
I had so much fun sharing this card with you today. I hope to do a video in the future to show you more ways to use this amazing die. Watch for my next video which will be all about the cards I created using the Simon Say Stamp June 2018 Card Kit.
