So, as promised, here I am with my second graduation card, also for a young man. This one's colour theme is maroon, black and white which are his school colours. I used the Paper Dolls Teen Scene to make this graduating doll. The problem with this cartridge is that there are no noses or mouths on these dolls and I just can't stand that, so I drew them in myself. Unfortunately I can't draw worth diddly, so it didn't come out the best but it's going to have to do.
Since the recipient of this card is a great trombone player and plans on following a career in music, I wanted to incorporate something musical in card. Looking through my stash I found the black and white music note paper that I thought was perfect for this card.
The numbers and sentiment were punched using an assortment of punches from EK and SU! I made the little tassle using crocheting cotton and used a little black gem in the centre. Normally, I use brads but the ones I had were a tad too big. I used a few more of the little black gems on the card to tie it in all together.
For the inside, I once again mixed and matched a few sentiments to come up with the one I wanted. I just remembered that I need to make a little gift card pocket on the other side of the card to insert the gift card we got him.
I think I'm done with graduation cards for this year. Thank you for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.
