Another Graduation Card
Happy Monday, Bloggers! Hope you all had a good weekend. I was able to do a little shopping for some craft goodies, but I didn't have a chance to tackle my craft room and organize everything. I REALLY need to finally get rid of some of the old stuff I have -- stuff that I know I will never use like some of the really old Making Memories embellishments and some of the older lines of paper from miscellaneous manufacturers. I PROMISED myself I'd make a huge dent this week. No more putting it off. Wish me luck! :)
Today, I want to share another graduation card I made. Not sure why the picture looks blurry when it is clear on my computer when I view it before uploading? Oh, well ... This card was really diffcult for me to put together because it's for a guy. I really struggle when it comes to designing things for men because I can't really do cutesie or blingy -- two of my most favorite things!
I decided to work with red and white which are the school colors. The star pp is a Prom-themed pp from Reminisce. I didn't have any Prom pictures to scrap, but I liked the stars and knew I could use them on something eventually since stars are so versatile. I used MTC to design and cut '2011'. The graduation cap was an svg file I got as a free download. I will have to look that up and post that later tonight or tomorrow. The twine is from Etsy. The saying at the top of the card is the school motto which I printed out and finished off with some red brads. Thanks for looking!
