Cityscape Graduation Card

One of my dearest friends has an offspring graduating from Yale this month. And, the lovely offspring has landed a great job in The Big Apple. I thought I would combine both of those accomplishments into one card.

I cut the buildings out of 4 different colors, using dryer sheets to hold all the pieces (4 layers of dryer sheet – this was one sheet (per color) folded into quarters – under the paper in your normal die cut machine sandwich).

I was then able to pull out specific windows to individually glue into my design.

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardreams Silver, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, YoYo Yellow (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Hero Arts, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
