Avery Elle Dino-mite Day College Congratulations Card

Hi there! It's so rare that I have the chance to take a break from Sunny Studio and make a card with other company's products so it was a real treat to make this card this week for my daughter who just accomplished her life's goal of getting accepted to the University of Washington. She's been working with an intense focus on this end game since the sixth grade so I'm so incredibly proud of her!

UW's colors are purple and gold so I wanted to make a card to reflect this and my daughter has always had a love for cute dinosaurs so when I saw the adorable Dino-mite Day Stamps by Avery Elle I knew they would be perfect for this card for her.

I started by cutting my 3.5 x 7.5 card panel using Lawn Fawn's Large Slimline with Sliders Die which I ran twice through my machine to shorten my card to a shorter width. I then inked up my panel using the Altenew Ink Blending Tool with Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves Distress inks.

For the oversized "W" logo, I cut it from some plum cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo with clipart I found online using the outline trace command. For my gold-colored banner, I cut it out using Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banners Dies and stamped it with the "congratulations" sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Wavy Sentiments Stamps using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. 

This came together so quickly and I had a blast venturing out with some of my other favorite brands I've been collecting. I hope you have a great Spring and thanks for letting me pop in and share this card with you. I hope to be back again soon. ❤
