Proud - Coordinating Labels Four

Back with the 5x7 Elegant Labels Four die set, I started by using the largest two of the three dies in the set. I simply cut and embossed them in the darker coral card stock and set them aside.

Background:  I started with a peach-colored paper with white dots on it (HOTP) for my background and attached it to the card.  I then glued the largest die cut piece to it.

Mat:  The next layer serves as a mat for the sentiment focal.  To make it, I cut a piece of peach patterned glittered cardstock with one of the coordinating Grand Labels Four dies.  I took the second coral die cut I had made (from the middle sized Elegant Labels Four die set) and cut out the center of it using the largest of the Labels Four dies to make a frame.  I glued this frame to the peach glittered die cut piece and glued my mat in place.

Sentiment Focal:   The stamp that I used for this sentiment also came from the Celebration Labels One and Bracket Border One stamp set from JustRite. I cut a piece of the coral card stock using a die from Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two - then stamped the sentiment in black ink before hand-writing the name above it.  This piece was attached to the mat with foam tape.

Inside: Once again, I don't have a picture of the inside, but it's pretty straight forward.  I took a strip (approx 1 1/2" wide) of the dotted peach paper and cut it in half lengthwise with a fancy-edged cutter.  This formed two borders for my inside page - one on either side.  I die-cut another piece of the coral card stock - this time with the smallest die from the Resplendent Rectangles set. I stamped "You did it!" and a little mortarboard (stamps from Tiny Words & Images set - HOTP)
