Hi everyone it’s Jackie back again today. Recently my son graduated from university so I just had to use the new monster die’s from Joset to create his celebration card, this design has a little bit of hand drawn fussy cutting however you can leave the mortarboard off then this would be suitable for any celebration.
Start by die cutting a whole load of confetti pieces using the die set – party time shapes 1978. Glue all the shapes on to the front of a top folding card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″
Cut out a circle of white card measuring approximately 4″ ink the centre in a circular shape (I used a acetate template I made from a smaller die) stamp out the sentiment towards the edge then add a couple of lines using a black pen. Fix in place using 3d foam pads.
Draw and fussy cut all the pieces for the mortarboard, I didn’t worry to much about being accurate with the diamond shape however you may have a die that would work for this step.
Roll the tiny fringe piece and glue it to the end of the thin strip, punch a tiny hole into the centre of the diamond piece and thread the tassel end though and glue in place, fussy cut a half moon shape then attach the two together with a couple of 3d foam pads. see photo in step 4.
Die cut and build the monster in which ever colour way you like. Attach the mortarboard then fix him in place using more 3d foam pads.
Next create the bubbly and glass, both of these die’s come in the same set – party time shapes 1978.
Die cut the bottle into green card then again into gold card fussy cutting the gold top part, cut a small white label and add a tiny message. Cut the glass into acetate then add gold fine glitter to the reverse side to resemble bubbles.
Thank you for stopping by today.. I hope I have inspired you to make a monster celebration card.
Happy crafting Jackie x
I love how you created the cap for this fun graduate. What a great background of confetti too. The monster is so cute.
