Hey friends! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I've had a little bit of stamping time today, and boy am I rusty!
I wasted an incredible amount of cardstock making this. The first version I made was perfect, until I smudged it with a blue fingerprint. The next few attempts, I couldn't get the numbers lined up. But I finally succeeded and managed to keep this one clean!
I made this card for our neighbors' daughter, who is graduating from high school this weekend. The school colors are royal blue and white, and I was pretty limited in what I could use since the only royal blue item in my craft room was this ink from ColorBox.
The stripes on the base are from Avery Elle's Knotty. I used Papertrey Ink's For the Graduate to add the graduation cap and "class of", masking the hat before stamping the border. I also added texture to the die cut layer with the Linen & Canvas impression plate.
Cardstock: WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (For the Graduate), Avery Elle (Knotty)
Ink: ColorBox (Royal Blue)
Tools: My Favorite Things (By the Numbers dies), Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder
We're off to my daughter's softball playoff game this afternoon, and as much as I'm rooting for her team, I'm secretly looking forward to the end of the season and a bit more time to breathe. LOL!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
