Lots of red and white with a few touches of black. I have to say - I am awful at creating masculine cards!! Ugh...WHY is it so hard? I think if it's not a required card with limited colors, I can do okay...but these were so hard!
The masculine cards have lots of embossing on them, but very difficult to see on white cardstock. The "Congratulations Graduate!" stamp is one I have had for years! Not sure who makes that one; all the other sentiments are from Verve Visual's Great Expectations stamp set.
I LOVED doing the feminine card; love how it turned out! The rosette ribbon was sprayed with glimmer mist in Red Velvet. I added a black doily (PTI die) to ground the notebook die. I used some MME and BG DP and lots of distressing and dimension on this card.
Thanks for popping in; hope you're having a great week!
...growing and graduating...
