We have a grand niece who is graduating from high school and so needed a card. Did the colors to match the invitation to the ceremony - the school's colors. Bought this cute little House Mouse stamp years ago, just exactly for family graduations...always have to hunt it up. Looked through many plastic bins of embossing folders to find the one used here. After the 3rd look-through, and not finding the EF, decided to start a better category sort. (Found the folder TOO!). Had bought some brightly colored plastic file folders at the local Dollar store (Walmart has them also)...cut them to size, made a tab, and wrote down the theme category. I'm happy to report that 5 plastic bins of EF's are now sorted. I expect I shall be shaking my head later and saying "Why on earth did I put THAT one in here?". Still have some in the old blue zipper Cuttlebug storage bags that I started with - that need attention. But I feel righteous that I did something positive about some of the mess!
- Stampendous HM image, stamped with Memento London Fog, colored with copics, glossy accents. A gold Pentel Slicci pen colored the tassel on the ceremonial cap.
- S/B Opulent Ovals - die cut motif. S/B Petite Oval large cut the gold mat. Mat was done with Wow Gold Pearl embossing over white snippet, and the center of the oval was removed before embossing.
- Darice EF to emboss the blue background.
- sentiment & inside verse was computer generated. Printed on a laser printer, and foiled using the Minc machine. I have to say this _did_ give better & more evenly foiled results than what I've done with the Nuvo glue pen, but the pen is faster & easier to do.
Now the card just needs to have the green added inside! (I'm sure you'll all know what I mean by the inside green!)
Hugs and have a fine Sunday afternoon. Come again when you can.
