Clean & Simple Graduation Card

I have to confess that I almost "bought" a graduation card.  But then I came to my senses and decided to make one with supplies I already had at home. :)

  • I used some Press N' Seal wrap to line up my numbers on the front of the card.  
    • Lay the numbers on grid paper to get the correct spacing and then place a piece of Press N' Seal sticky side down over the numbers which are face up.  
    • Rub over the top of the Press N' Seal to get the numbers to stick to it. 
    • Very carefully pull up the piece of Press N' Seal because the glimmer paper doesn't want to stick.  This technique actually works much better with regular card stock or DSP.
    • Apply multipurpose glue to the back of the numbers and then place the sheet over your card front.  Again, be very careful because the numbers will want to fall off.  
    • Press down to get the numbers to adhere to the card. Carefully pull the Press N' Seal off of the numbers.  You can see more samples of this technique by googling "press n' seal technique for cards."
  • The banner is heat embossed with gold embossing powder and is adhered with dimensionals.
