Jax STARZ Hop - Dads & Grads

Welcome to May's installment of the the Jacksonville STARZ Hop. You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Beka's Blog. Either way welcome! You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects. This month we are focusing on Dads and Grads. I chose to focus on the Grads because 1) I am a high school teacher, and 2) I have about 5 seniors that are graduating this year.

Here is the card I'm making for my seniors that are graduating this year. My school's colors are Black and Gold, so I used Basic Black and Crushed Curry. It's a very simple yet elegant, and I think my graduates will love it. I think I might add a diploma and 2015 to the base of the year. 

 It's a Spring Fold Card. Basically the fold of the card springs up the face of the card. Here is a template to help you recreate this card.

The dotted lines are where you score, and the solid lines are where you cut. Here is a picutre to show how the fold works. Once your are finished embellishing your card you glue the bottom triangle to the base. This helps the face of the card "spring" up. 

Well thanks for hopping by. Please be sure to leave a comment before you head on over to Rose Ann's Blog
