I have been busy with non-blog things since getting back from my grand-nephew's party out-of-state. I've been getting my garden ready to go, working on a baby quilt and receiving blankets, and generally getting things back to normal after two trips this month. That's a lot of traveling for me!!! Eeeek!
Today I am sharing a sparkly graduation card I made for a young lady. It's hard to photograph all the glittery gleam on this card, but I hope you can get the idea.
I used some graduation stickers for embellishing the card. These are a wonderful alternative for me when I don't have the proper dies or stamps for a particular occasion. I try to buy these when I see them on out-of-season clearance so I have them on hand in my stash for making quick cards.
I followed a terrific sketch I found on Sunday Stamps. They have a super-fun sketch each month!
Here's an angled shot of my card that shows a bit more of the shine. I used DCWV Black Currant stack....one of my faves of ALL time!!! LOVE IT!! The scalloped edge vertical strip is from that stack, too. The amazing platinum glitter paper is from the DCWV Twinkle Glints stack. Love this dazzling stack that my dear daughter gave me!! <3 <3 <3 She knows how much I like shiny things! :) I used a stencil to cut out this shape.
The doily is from my stash. It adds just the right amount of girly-ness without being too frilly. I think the pink ribbon with the metallic silver edging is just the right touch for the vertical strip.
Hope you enjoyed my card today. The sun is out this morning and it looks like more good weather is finally on the way here, again. Have a lovely day!!
