Hi friends and welcome to another Unity FWF Friday!
I wanted to use the "Ulysses" idea from last Friday in a graduation card this week. But instead of having his head peek through, this time I constructed a flapped card that allows me to tuck bills behind a scene that features copies of Ulysses face. I have to tell you that my son's little inexpensive copier made color copies of these bills so authentic looking I can just imagine how counterfeiters do it! Thank goodness our government magically sticks a watermark image within the bill...
The banner on the front of my card came from the May '10 KOTM (a little Happy). I stamped it twice directly on my panel then used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher between all the pennants for a little interest. I added paper pieced pennants and rub-on letters to spell out my greeting. (Can I tell you that I did this twice? The first time I spelled out Happy Birthday then realized it was supposed to be a graduation card, silly me! So my pennants have extra dimension because I had to add another layer to make it the right saying! Lol.) Lastly, one of the adorable birds from the Ippity set Quotes a la Happy decided to fly into my scene.
On the inside, I used Suzi Blu's Queen of Glitter image for the bodies of the three Ulysses. I like that the hands are up and waving and her blouse makes a good man's shirt. I cut the faces out of the bills that I had copied, adhered them and topped each with the party hat from Hugs and Kitties. By using foam spacers, I made the pocket for the bills hiding place. The empty panel above it is for a handwritten note.
Thanks for dropping by! Be sure and check out the other participants these week on the Unity blog HERE.
Have a great weekend,
