My sister and I made similar graduation cards this year, so I thought I'd share them both with you.
Here's my sister's card:
I love all the detail she added: the embossed numbers, the mortar board and the "Congrats" banner tied around the zero. Such a nice touch!
My card is a lot plainer. I cut the numbers and their shadow from the George cartridge. Using the school colors of maroon and gold, I adhered them on a black mat for a bit of contrast. Since it was for a girl, I simply added a little bling.
Now when I look at it, it looks awfully plain! I guess I should have added some embossing, too!!
Here's an angle shot so you can see the bling a little better. I welded the gold shadow letters together using my Gypsy, but cut the maroon letters separately.
The inside seems a little too plain, too. Some embossing would have been nice here, as well. Guess I need to go visit my sister and take a few lessons on making cards! When can I come, Michelle?
I have another graduation card to share with you, but will do that in another post. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
