After the tons of Graduation cards I made in the past few weeks, I still was looking for the perfect one for my daughter graduating from Davis on the 15th of this month.
I wanted something that would reflect her personality.
She is... like a flower.
So I put 4 of them, one for each year she was away in Davis, stamped with a Stamp Craft stamp, and colored the heart of the flower with a Copic Marker.
I then added a piece of Simplicity Class of 2012 silver Ribbon at the edge of the three windows.
The diploma is from Sparkle'n Sprinkle, the cap is a Michael's $1 stamp.
Congrats! is a Vap! Scrap stamp. I attached it to the top part of the card so when you open it, it reveals the UC Davis gold seal: I had some leftover from her graduation announcements... which makes me wonder where I messed up and not put those stickers.
Here is a close up:
A view of the inside: I just added a yellow card stock to remind of the yellow hearts of the flowers.
Here is another version of the same card, I replaced the yellow card stock by a silver one, and used a "stars' stamps from Anita's and a Congratulations sentiment from Stampin'up.
I couldn't resist but adding the "You're the Star of the Show! (from Annette Aden Watkins) on the inside flap.
Until next time...
