My take on My Pink Stampers card

While blog hopping this afternoon, I saw a cute card that MY PINK STAMPER had made for a graduation. You can check out her video and card here:
I really liked it and wanted to try it. First I didn't have any silver paper, so I got creative and used TIN FOIL, I embossed it with the Houndstooth folder I found at Big Lots for $2.oo. Pink Stamper used Locker Talk for her Graduation Cap. I don't have that cart so I found this one on A Child's Year and cut it at 3" using the icon button.
The ladies at my local scrap booking store showed me how they have been using Shrink Plastic Film, rubber stamps, stazOn ink and a heat gun to make little charms. I've been having so much fun making these, and I wanted to somehow incorporate one into this card. I don't have alot of rubber stamps and of course didn't have a Congratulations sentiment.( I definately need to shop for more rubber stamps.) So I settled for the Celebrate rubber stamp inside of a dollar stamp from Michael's. Of course it didn't show up on the black or silver so I used a little tag and attached it with twine. I really like how it turned out. Here is a picture of some of the other charms I've done. Click on the picture for a larger view. Sorry about the glare, it was hard to photograph the tin foil. Let me know what you think. I love, love, love your comments. Thanks Pink Stamper for the idea. Shari
