Cookie Cutter Christmas In the City card.

I’m a little obsessed right now with graduation as I
have so many family members graduating this year!!
Some of these graduates will be looking for their first adult job.
I thought a congratulations on your job kind of card would be fun!

I created the background using In the City.
The buildings are perfect for the office jobs that many are seeking.
The simple black and white color scheme doesn’t compete with my punch art fun.

For my newly employed guy, I used an image from Cookie Cutter Christmas
and cut it out with the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

The guy was inked in Basic Black on Whisper White.
Then, I punched two more guys from Basic Black.

After cutting the head and hands off of one Basic Black punch, I layered it over
the Whisper White guy.
Then, I cut the head, hands and legs off of the second Basic Black punch
to create the suit jacket.
A Basic Black small circle from the builder punch was used for the button.
I added Fine Tip Glue to it to give it a sheen.
The jacket was added with Dimensionals.

The bow tie is also a cut from the builder punch.
And, his shoes are two larger circles from the builder punch.


Finally, I added the sentiment created with the Labeler Alphabet.
The words were arranged in a bouncy pattern – kind of like you hear that song in your head.

    Such a fun card Sara. Anyone can get through a first day at work when they’re as dapper as your guy and singing that song 🙂 ~ Jay

    Hey Sara, you bought a smile to my face as soon as I saw your “bouncy” little take on “congratulations on your new job” greeting. And yes, the song is now stuck in my head! 🙂 Love the whole concept of your card, the punch art guy is fabulous! xxx
