I spent last weekend in Kansas celebrating the high school graduation of my nephew and the college graduation of my niece. It was a busy weekend full of laughter, tears,gifts, lots of driving and of course some handmade cards. I thought I would share the cards I made with you.
For my nephew's high school graduation - school colors are gold and black:
I used the Large Numbers Framelits for the numbers. The stamped stars are from the Perpetual Birthday calendar stamp set - it's a great one to use for backgrounds. An embossed background and a few star sequins finished it off. He seemed pleased with it and didn't mind the glitter paper.
The next 2 were for my nieces. They both graduated the same day about 120 miles away from each other. Unfortunately I couldn't make it in time for either of their graduations. I cheated and made the same card for them, just changing the colors to match their school colors:
I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the background. The swoosh under 'graduation' is from the Perpetual Birthday calendar set - I told you it was versatile! The 'graduation' is from the Crazy About You stamp set. It has so many great words in it. The 'happy' was cut using the Hello You Thinlets. You can get both of these as a bundle right now for $54.25 a savings of over $10. Both these items are available in the new catalog but not as a bundle.
I'm gearing up for some Project Life classes so next time I'll share some of that with you.
