I started out without really having a plan or a card sketch in mind. I just knew that I wanted to start with these frames. The chosen class colors are turquoise & silver so I dug in my embossing drawer for those colors. Oh how I love to see these frames embossed. I trimmed around them closely and rounded the corners. I also embossed the SC sentiment "best day ever" on the card front which is Papertrey Rustic White.
Next up I planned a layout and chose some patterned papers. The chevron is from My Mind's Eye and the people paper chain is from Studio Calico. I also chose some aqua twine to coordinate.
I assembled all the cut pieces on my 4 card fronts and added pop dots to the backs of the embossed frames.
Next I printed a recent photo of the girls from their graduation dress shopping day. Teens love their photos of friends so I know the girls will appreciate these cards. I just reduced the size of a square Instagram in my printer settings and printed 2 photos on one 4 x 6 piece of photo paper. Ack, so cute!
I did a little final assembly, adding Papertrey buttons, tied twine and Studio Calico wood asterisks to the card fronts.
So many fun, colorful details and the embossing just makes everything bright and cheery.
On the insides I used several stamps to create a collage of sentiments. A little Washi tape and some leftover paper scraps finish them off.
And here's the final four cards. I can't wait to hand them out to the Wolf Pack on graduation night.
Hope you enjoy!
We have no kids tonight which is rare. We went out for dinner at a new Mexican restaurant. No margaritas. NO MARGARITAS. What's the point, right? So we thought we'd stay and have chips and dinner. No free chips & salsa. Say what? We enjoyed our time together then came home and stared at the wall and played with Charlie. Now Eric's watching tv in bed and I'm writing a blog post & drinking a cup of coffee. We are exciting people, people. Please go somewhere and have a margarita for me.
