Graduations Galore!!

We have tons of friends graduating this year so I've been making lots of cards to give away - I needed one more feminine card and I am IN LOVE with the colors for CTD393 this week - SWOON! My 'light pink' is a bit more peach and it ultimately turned into a crazy combo but I still love it!

Both Laura and Carissa showed partial diecutting this week which I adore but CLEARLY the size of your die at an angle must be able to fit through your diecutting machine...wonder how I would know about that - HA! Laura didn't use a die and that clearly would be easier but I liked the stitched border - live and learn...and try again!

I stamped the 2 medium flowers, masked and stamped the larger one underneath, I colored all the layers with Copics then traced the image with a fine tip sharpie THEN when back and added a bit bolder edge to the right side of all the petals - love how it changes the look just a bit. I probably could have made them even thicker...



See the shimmer - swoon!!
That banner on the right hand side? Yeah, remember when I said I NEVER stamp or adhere anything straight...#truth...had to cover it up with an embossed flag and a couple pieces of washi tape just for fun. The main panel was layered onto a Mama Elephant scalloped die cut from MFT designer paper and PTI Raspberry Fizz. And I have so much designer paper, I pulled a full sheet from a completely different pad and used the full sheet on the inside cutting another scalloped piece, a small border for the bottom and added a thin strip of washi tape.


Some gorgeous PPP sequins and clear wink of stella finish off the card. Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs,
