ello ladies and Gent! How is everyone doing this middle of week? As usual I am keeping busy over here making projects while regular life happens LOL. I am also working on some other goodies that hopefully we will be able to share soon. I had an amazing weekend with the visit of my dear friend Suzanne. Gosh did I need to laugh a little…and believe me…She can make you laugh! So I highly recommend you popping into one of Suzanne’s copic classes…( check out her CMC on the road website!! SC NC here she comes!!) you not only will have a super class in coloring but you will have a ball!
Dionne is the hostess of the current House of Gilli challenge. Black plus one color! I held to the challenge rules and I stick to Cs and Es…copic lengo…for Blacks and Browns. Here you can see the little project I prepared for the challenge. Gilli Graduate was colored with copics. I added just a little touch of Stickles on her graduation ring to make it special : ). I wanted to give a more up to date vibe to the graduation card…so I picked this super cute paper from My minds eye and cut a piece that looks like a real certificate. It sooo set the tone for the whole thing! Well a certificate needs a cute frame to be showcase so I created a frame by layering paper pieces punched with Martha Stewart punches. I used regular cardstock and kraft paper. A real diploma must have a seal, right? I created a “celebrate” seal for the certificate by embossing a little cut out piece of card stock. I also added a thin layer of stickle around of the embossing. For an added flair I looped a nice piece of ribbon.
To make this card even more special I made a base using a folded piece of acetate. The acetate gives such a cool airy look…almost futuristic…well, graduation is all about tomorrow right?
I hope you enjoyed the project! Stick around..more to come!
Thanks for dropping by! Huggies
