Hello once again. There is a new challenge up at Cardz4Galz, and the new theme is ‘Graduation‘. Here is my card:
This card actually took quite a bit of time to get together. I didn’t think I had anything which in any way meant to be graduation and I did spend a little time thinking about die-cutting a mortar board hat and adding a sentiment – but then didn’t think I had a graduation sentiment……….
So – hunting through my stash I came across this new stamp set from Clearly Besotted – not yet put away from buying the recent release – and saw…….a mortar board hat, and a scroll, and the little owls in the same set I could play with.
I stamped the images, coloured them with Copics, then die cut them. Now to the background……..
I decided to keep this quite simple and used the ‘Polka Dot Plate‘ die from Avery Elle, cut in white card, and placed on a black base card. Then to the sentiment………
and came across the Lawn Fawn stamp set ‘Reveal Wheel Spring Sentiments‘ bought with – you guessed it – the reveal wheel dies………….and there we had a graduation word. I cobbled together the sentiment you see, and stamped onto a black square, heat embossed in white.
I did toy with the idea of putting the square like a diamond, like a mortar board hat, with a little tassel, but went with what you see.
When I placed the images, I even cut into the owl’s hand a little so he could be holding the scroll:
I hope you can come and join us for this ‘Graduation’ themed challenge – the design Team have some fabulous varied inspiration for you. I look forward to seeing you there and seeing what you come up with. 🙂 🙂
