Hi friends! What a week it's been! I've somehow managed to pack a ton into my schedule these last 4 days and I'm quite ready for a quiet, relaxing weekend (and by that, I mean a non-stop card-making fest). :)
So, a week or so ago a friend asked me to make a card for her to give to a friend. She needed a graduation card and I took that opportunity to try out a different style and color scheme, since graduation cards often require specific product that I just didn't have. I love making cards for other people because it gives me a chance to experiment with different styles without over-thinking it like I often do for magazine submissions. Here's the result:
SUPPLIES: Cardstock: The Paper Company, Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: American Crafts Clear stamp: Papertrey Ink Embossing powder: Hampton Art Watermark ink: Tsukineko Button: Papertrey Ink Floss: DMC Edge punch: Fiskars
Like I said, I didn't have any graduation-specific embellishments on hand (except for the stamp), so I went for a more abstract, typography theme. I also decided to keep the design very simple and let the colors pop. I'm loving navy and berry colors lately. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
