Simple & Sincere (May 24th post) I knew it would be just right for my grandson's graduation card!
Changing to Northwest Christian School colors of blue and gold, I followed the guidelines I just taught at Mothers Class for masculine cards:
metallic embellishments and
no bows or ribbons!
After running some cs through the Cuttlebug with a rick-rack die, I attached them to the bottom of a white panel and trimmed the excess. Using dark blue ink, I stamped the Congrats just above the rick-rack. Then I used a Sizzix die for the stars and added a gold star in the center of the large one and mounted them on the panel. After running the yellow card base through the CB with an embossing folder, I tied gold cording and navy embroidery floss around the top-fold card. After attaching the complete white panel to the card, it is now ready to give on graduation night.
Thank you Jen for such a great idea!
