You are probably wondering why I’m sharing a bunch of graduation cards cards this late. I was going to post them on Saturday, but life happened. But I have the cards made, might as well share them, you can always make them for graduation party coming up or change the sentiments for thank you cards too!
As you know, this theme week was more to challenge me to make masculine cards more than anything else, as you probably know that I gravitate towards florals and all things glittery! Another thing that I’m not good at is coloring critters, but my new collections of zig real brush markers has helped! I plan on using the current coloring challenge to get a little more practice with critters has I have managed to collect A LOT of them!
After coloring my little critter images, I die cut them with the coordinating die, but these images can also be fussy cut as they aren’t that detailed. I wanted to create cards that can be mass produced, so after the coloring I chose to keep the rest of the card relatively simple. I used two stencils to create an embossed card two (one with graduation caps and the second with bows). I adhered the critters using foam tape an added some star sequins and some clear ones to finish of the cards.
And that’s it! Thanks for following along this theme week, I really hope that it inspires you to use what you have in your stash and just be creative! We don’t need the newest and greatest products to create!
