I am happy to finally share with you the Graduation cards I had made for the stores a month ago. I work way ahead on my DT Commitments, so that is why these cards are a tad late to share for graduation season. The layout for our Sketch this week at The Paper Players was the starting point for these designs. Sweet Laurie selected the perfect sketch and what I loved about it is, it’s just basic enough to let your creativity flow.
Here are a two others that I made while I was at it.
Since the Grad die and hat is brand new to me I am linking up my cards over with Darnell over at NBUS!
Card Details: I started off making my own stencil out of these fun Spellbinder rectangle dies that have these fun jagged edges, they are so old and I have no idea what their official name is. Next, I sponged my backgrounds in various colors using Oxide Inks. Then I got out some fun background stencils-the heart is from Honey Bee Stamps and the star one is SU along with some white pigment ink and pounded away using a sponge applicator. The grad die and cap are from SSS, and the rest of the sentiment is from Verve. You can’t tell by the photos but 2 of the 3 grad dies have a shadow of vellum beneath them. I forgot to add it to one of them. The fun decorative victorian bevel is made with my large Fiskars cutter.
