My oldest son, Hunter, recently graduated from high school. His graduation party is this weekend, so I wanted to have a batch of "Thank You" cards ready.
His school colors are blue and white, so papers from The Blues collection were a perfect match. So how do you make a nice bundle of cards in a very short time? Tricia's ALCM formulas of course! So I grabbed my The Blues Club Stamp Assorted Paper Pack.
Instead of using the card formula from The Blues, I opted to use the Reunion 1214ALCM instructions. I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful shades of blue in the collection and less about the music-related artwork. This formula produces 14 cards . . . perfect!
A quick paper substitution and I was in business. (To see the exact substitutions I made, see the bottom of this post.) One change: The strips created in step 3b were trimmed into banner shapes.
Each card was stamped with a "Thank You" sentiment from past Greeting UMs.
The smallest square element reminded me of Hunter's graduation cap, so I tried to replicate the look with a brad and navy hemp fiber. I used foam adhesive to attach them to the card.
I encourage you to grab an ALCM formula and mix it up some time. Have a creative day!
The Blues substitutions:
- Reunion Tan Print = Grey Print
- Reunion Ivory Text Print = White Text Print
- Reunion Red Plain = Medium Blue Plain
- Reunion Brown Plain = Navy Blue Plain
- Reunion Ivory Plain = White Plain
- Reunion Blue Plain = Light Blue Plain
