Is There A Graduate In The House?

Grandchild #3 graduated from High School  and she is having a graduation party on July 5, 2014 to celebrate.  I have been busy making things for her party and I will share those in another post.  The above two cards  are for Kaylee and her best friend Liza.  

I decided to just "girly it up" for Kaylee using papers from K & Company, some tulle, lace ribbon and flowers.  I think pearls and girls coming of age just go together.  I know it is "my generation:, but girls used to be given pearls as a "lady" came of age.  Well my little Kaylee is coming of age, so I used plenty of soft pink pearls on her card.  I chose not to incorporate an image this time letting the beauty come from the words in the verse and the paper and embellishments.  I love the vintage feel of this one.  

The blue and yellow graduate is an image from Saturated Canary called Grad Girl 2012.  I love Krista's characters.  They have the biggest eyes and funkiest outfits and poses.  She is one of my favorite digi artists and I rely on her stamps often. You can check out Kristas store by clicking here.  I am a member of Kit and Clowder Face Book Page and one of Alyce's students.  You'll see a lot of Krista's images over there colored up with amazing color combos.  The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye.  To make the mortar board inside the card, I stamped on the DP and fussy-cut it out.  The diploma is a piece of white paper rolled up and tied with a yellow cord.

Challenges I want to enter in:

Robyn's Fetish - Graduation Cards
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes
Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes


  1. Congratulations to the graduates! Love both cards but my most favorite is the first, love the touch of femininity.
