How about his and hers graduation cards tonight? I still have one and a half cards left to make, out of seven, but I'm getting there! I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Star Prints set and used it for the focal image and sentiment on front of both cards.
For the girl card I used some Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper with Raspberry Fizz ink and cardstock. I used a Spellbinders border die for the small scalloped edge above and below the sentiment (Border Deckle and Scallop), and some Zva rhinestones for the flourish and straight lines (CRW-02CA-106 and CRW-03CA-107). I cut the flourish into three pieces to make it fit around my glittered star just right.
For the guy card (which my husband still has doubts about being guy-ish enough), I used some Papertrey Dotty Biscotti paper, along with Kraft, Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist, and Hawaiian Shores cardstock. The star is embossed with Filigree detail white embossing powder on kraft cardstock and attached with foam tape. I was hoping that the muted color, lack of ribbon, and knotted twine in the button would convince my husband that it really was a guy card, but he wasn't totally convinced. Finally we agreed that it was the money inside that really mattered more than the button. . . Sigh. . . Men!
I really enjoyed giving the two cards different "moods," and I'll probably try that again some time. Thanks for visiting!
