Grad Card

I saw this card and immediately wanted to make my own version. I did mine a little differently. Instead of popping up the numbers, I cut them out of the white layer and placed black paper behind. I also don't have a silhouette, but I do have some number dies.

I kept the dies exactly where I wanted by using post-it notes and running through one number at a time.

Then I added 2 rhinestones for a tiny bit of bling and a graduation sentiment.

Stamps: Movers & Shakers Sentiments
Ink: Black Onyx
Accessories, etc.: Rhinestones, By the Numbers die
