Just popping in to share some graduation cards I made for some special friends.
The first two cards were for my brothers girlfriend who graduated from CSUN and she is planning to be an elementary school teacher. So both cards feature the happiest grad ever, Graduation Anya.
The first card was a lot of fun to make, especially using the October Afternoon schoolhouse paper. The colors were bright, but the patterns were fun! Truly inspired by her becoming a teacher.
The second card is more formal and definitely sweet. I love the stripes and constrast in colors with the white bringing everything to life. The layout is one that I have used in the past, and it's simple and fun. What you don't see is that I made it into a fun easel card with a pocket to put a message or giftcard in.
Here is what it looks like opened. This one is a little bit of a formal one compare to the other one, but still fun with that cutie pie.
And lastly, my friend just graduated earning his MBA. He said he no longer has to worry about going back to school.. He's so lucky!! hahaha. For this card I went really simple using the school colors (Cal Poly Pomona) and coloring his cap and gown black. I also added some gold paper. I also had another body swap with WS-Daniel and Grad Ian. Love this combo.
I used the Congrats embossing folder (Cuttlebug) for the background and to make it a little formal I added some photo tabs. Here is the front of the card:
Love how the gold paper adds that little formal feeling. And can you believe I also made an inside for the card? Yep, here is what I did on the inside:
That's all I have for today. Hope you are all having a great day, and I am going to make sure I come and visit your blogs. Mahalo for taking time out of your busy life to see what I've been up to. I really appreciate it. :)
