I love to make window cards – I don’t make them very often but when I do, I remember how fun they are…

In celebration of all of the Graduations currently going on, I wanted to show you a graduation window shaker card that I made that features the colors Black, Silver & Gold which gives a very elegant look…

AND this is the first time that I used Stampin’ Up!’s Foam Adhesive Strips to make a window card – LOVE this new product (find it in the catalog on pg 182) and how easy they make it to put together window cards without the contents falling out…FAB product!

Sooo here is my card…

LOVE how the colors black, silver & gold work together – they just scream of elegance!!!

This was a very simple & quick card to make using just 3 cardstock colors – Basic Black, Silver Foil & Gold Foil – and of course a little bit of White for the banner…

The sentiment was a stamp from the super versatile set BYOP – this is a GREAT one to have on hand in your stash – and I shaped one end of it using yet another very versatile tool – the Triple Banner Punch – I highly recommend this punch – it makes making banners super easy…

The window frame was made using a Square Framelit Die and a bit of Window Sheet

The ‘filling’ for my card is simply a bunch of Metallics Sequins – I adhered some in place with a little bit of glue so that they don’t all fall to the bottom when the card is upright – and the balloon is another easy to make embellie – simply punched out of Gold Foil using the Balloon Bouquet Punch

All items I used on my card today are things that I could not do without LOL – this is a card made from my core ‘must haves’ in my collection!
