Just another retro theme card… Whatever… with Señor Gleason

September 28, 2019

Hello All!

I am so excited to so you these cards today! If you have not already watched the movie Clueless I implore you too stop whatever you are doing and go watch it right now! Once you have finished watching the movie and have OD’d on 90’s nostalgia were ready to start working on these cards. Now lets get stampin’ with the homies with the Whatever stamp set!       P.s. I also snuck in the lipstick from On Wednesday’s We Wear Ink set!2F6A41B2-B305-4D68-BA06-6CC1A9051849
I wanted this card to be very sparkly, so break out all that glitter paper you have been saving for a special occasion cuz this is it! I generally start with my ephemera for my cards. I feel like if I have all of the pieces then I can just assemble them after. It also helps to actually visualize what things are going to look like when you put them all together.

Once you have all the pieces you can do a mock up and see how the composition will look.

I used a cutting machine to cut the holes on this card… however once again you can always use die cuts or an craft knife to achieve the same effect. The circles for the lipstick, cellphone, perfume, and hanger are all about 1.1” x 1.1”. The pen was 1.25” x 1.2”, the single outfit was 1.5” x 2.25” and the double out fir was 2.5” x 2.75”. I once again tried to keep the amount of accessories an odd number around the central images.

Next you go ahead and affix the sparkly card in your choice of color with the windows cut out to your sparkly card base. Make dure you add the foam tape so that the accessories and outfits look to be floating through the windows. I chose to for one card stamp/emboss the “whatever” sentiment on the oval in keeping with the aesthetic of the movie. For the double out fit I chose a simpler friend oriented sentiment to reflect the best friends depicted.

As always your card is not complete unless you add those embellishments. Remember more is more! I topped off this card with Flat Back Half Beads- Donna Pearl which really polished it up!

I hope you got as drunk on nostalgia as I did while making this card. If you haven’t yet purchased this stamp set yet, ask yourself “What would Cher do?” Of course the answer would be buy it!
