Flying High Graduation Card

Since my daughter is graduating from high school this year, we have quite a few young ladies who we know that are graduating too.  This is a good occasion to send a card and so I have lots of different designs in mind and am busy making those cards.

This creation is using a very old stamp set that I won online over five years ago.  I clear embossed the balloons with a brown ink basket onto some Bristol paper.  I then used my Zig markers to color the images. The background was dry embossed with a Swiss dot pattern and colored with some Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

A simple sentiment inside with a black card base - unusual for me, but fitting the ceremony of the card.

This card didn't turn out quite the way that I wanted so I'm going back to the drawing board to give it another go.  I've this new design in mind for the card for my daughter, so mums the word!


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
