We have a niece who is graduating from high school next week. This week’s Dynamic Duos colors were close enough to the school’s colors, so I quickly worked up a grad card last night. With just enough time to get this card in under the wire!
I used some new supplies for this card: Guide Lines Grid impression plate, Seeing Stars die, Super Stars Border die, and Fishtail Flags Stax die. I also used my For the Graduate stamp set, which hasn’t been used since last year, I believe.
Had a little trouble with the big star when I tried to add a few gems beneath it because the gem swirls were a little short and I wanted them to look more like part of the star instead of like separate elements. So there’s a little ‘blip’ in it, and I think some of the glitter rubbed off. But I don’t have time to correct it, with a busy weekend coming up. Hopefully it’s not that noticeable.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
