Reach For the Stars


I am trying something different.  Part of my post is coming from my phone.  Ok, one sentence.  The on board keyboard gave out.  not sure what happened.  I got the phone in December 2011.  The picture came from my phone though.  I currently in search for a new digital camera that also takes videos for You Tube.

Today, I want to show you that anyone can make a card.  What I love about 3-D stickers is the promise of quick delivery.  What I mean is you can make this for less than $10.   Also with this card, it takes about 10 mins or less to place the mat on the card and knowing how you want to arrange the stickers.   Add a note for the grad, voila, instant card.   For this graduation card, you will need:


1 card blank cut to any size.  I am using a A2 size card card blank (4.24" x 5.5")
Adhesive of your choice
Cardstock for matting (matting for this card is cut 1/8" smaller than the card blank)
1 pack of 3-D stickers from any company (I am using the stickers called Valedictorian by TPC Studio)
Your Imagination

Alternate #1:  If you know how to make a pocket for the inside of the card, place on the left-hand side to hold a gift card, check, or money. (2 minutes extra time)

Alternate #2:  If you are inviting a group of a few friends.  You can make this into an invitation.  All you need is 2 or three packs of the same sticker set.  Having 4 or more items in a pack helps, because everyone does not have to get the same sticker.  Mat with one sticker then on the inside place your invite.

Be sure to stop by the Card a Day Blog to take a look at all of the cards for the week, and enter a card in the April Challenge.

For those of you how are graduating this year or have a person, big or small, who is graduating, you earned it.   As today's card says, reach for the stars, do not let anything hold you back, and give back whenever you can.  Do well in life, enjoy, and have fun at what you do.  You can never stop learning, so learn all that you can, and never give up.   Have a good day, and be blessed.
