JustRite Challenge #073

Hello Everyone,

I'm finally back to card making and today I have another card for you.  This card will be entered into the JustRite Friday Challenge #073.  For this challenge we were to create a shaped card in any shape as long as it's NOT square!  So, I needed to create a card for my daughter, who is graduating from high school, so this is what I came up with.


I used Spellbinders Grand dies to create the card base and, inked the edges with Distress Stain. The I stamp the sentiment using JustRite stamps and layered on Spellbinders dies.  I printed the 2012 from a font on my computer because I couldn't find my JustRite Fonts. I can only guess that my fonts are packed away with my other crafting supplies.  I punch out the pennant using Epiphany Craft punches and glued to the background. The mortar board/cap was cut out from a template, I created, I inked the edges with Distress Stain, and mounted with foam squares.


I created the inner page using the next small sized Spellbinder Grand die. I inked the edges so they would standout against the card base. The pic of my daughter was cut out and mounted on black cardstock. I stamped the sentiments using JustRite stamps, cut out and mounted them on the same black card stock.


The back two pages will hold personal sentiments from me and her dad.  Well that's it for me, I need to get some ironing done.  Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you later.

Hugs,
Regina
