Jenny Gropp - You are here!

I've been hooked on these Zenspirations images lately.  I inked up this Never Never image for a grad card. Simple coloring that you could customize to match the school colors. I cut the image down quite a bit so I could nest it in to the frames from the 6 in 1 Rectangle Frame Die.

On the inside I added a little extra something to hold a gift card. I used the Gift Card Insert 2 Die to create the little half circle insert flaps. I framed it with one of the nesting pieces from the 6 in 1 Rectangle Frame Set. I also added the word enjoy, by snipping just the word from the Circle Greeting Cutout Set. Along the bottom of the liner, I used a favorite die, one of the sentiments from the Bottom Greeter Edgers Set.

Multiple layers are popped up and some are recessed, mixing and matching the frames form the 6 in 1 Rectangle Die Set. I added a little Copic coloring using R29. Over the red areas that were colored, I added a little shimmer with a Wink of Stella Clear pen and topped it with a clear glaze. On the boldest "never" in the sentiment I used a Black Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle!


  1. Awesome card - wonderfully designed. Love the little money/card insert too.

  2. a clever design with gift card. Love the who concept. and the sentiment is perfect with the design an colors. well done
