Happy Tuesday everyone! Last night, I was determined to finish this card and refused to go to bed until it was done. Sometimes, I get so focused on a project that I can't stop and lose all track of time. I'm so glad this one is finished though, as I have a lot of other projects to work on this week.
I'm happy to say that I finally found a good spot to take my pictures. At least, I think the lighting is better than before. I really need to get a new battery for my DRebel, though! Oh, how I miss taking pictures with that camera! For now, I'm relying on my Samsung p & s camera. It will have to do for now.
On to today's share. This is a graduation card I made for a relative. She's graduating from Moanalua High School, so I designed the card with the school colors in mind. This was one of those projects that turned out completely different from what I originally envisioned. I guess I shouldn't be surprised though, as a lot of my projects seem to take that route! It took me a while to play around with the different color combinations and placement. I tend to keep fiddling with the different design elements until I finally feel it's good enough. I'm sure a lot of you can relate!
Hello Kitty was cut from the Cricut Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. I really LOVE that cartridge. I mean, who doesn't love Hello Kitty, right??? I used red Doodlebug pp for her bow and then went over with Glossy Accents. The 'congrats' sentiment is from a Hero Arts set. I used MTC to design and cut '2011'. I used a varsity letter type font which I downloaded off the internet. It just seemed so appropriate given the theme of the card. The silver pp behind it was embossed with the D Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. Ribbon by Offray, twine from Etsy, and heart charm from The Charming Place.
I'm working on a sympathy card next and then some party favors. I also have two birthday cards to work on. Hopefully, I'll be back tonight with another project to share. Thanks for looking!
