Graduation Thank You and Graduation Card, Father's Day also
First I would like to show you the thank you cards I made for Carl's Graduation. So if you attended his party or sent a card and do not want to see the card, don't look and come back after you've received it in the mail.
Right, I knew you'd look anyway.
This was fun to make. I used my cuddlebug and embossing folders and embossed the gold paper with D'vine Design. Then I embossed the black strips with dots. I made my own glimmer mist and glimmered the black strips also. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it really shimmers. I layered the silhouette of the graduate and popped the maroon layer with pop dots. Thank you font is one I downloaded from dafont.com and it's called Black Rose. I really like it. Next time I will try shadowing this font. Anyway, hope you enjoy the card.
The next card is for my niece who also graduated this year. It's simple but elegant I think. The scroll is from A Child's Year and I double cut and handcut out the ribbon. Then I tied a real ribbon into a bow and glued it on top. The Sentiments are also using the Black Rose font. I really like this font.
I haven't done too many shaped cards so I thought I'd try one. Didn't turn out too bad.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little card making and hope to see you again soon.
