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.
