Classic Class of 2019

I was commissioned to make a card for a college graduate. Back when my middle child graduated High School, Stampin’ Up! offered a “Class of 2015” stamp. Obviously after using it for that occasion, it started collecting dust. I spied it and thought, “Hey! I should cut the stamp apart!” And that is what I did. I finally thought outside the box. I also decided to use gold foil for the year and I think it is a great fit with this card. I used a little-known die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection that cuts a series of small circles. Using this on the gold foil paper made the circles look like metal brads and I just love the effect! The Take Your Pick Tool was a lifesaver in picking up those little circles and placing them on the glue dots.

Banner for Marcus

Tomorrow is the day! Marcus’ Pass-in-Review from the Navy Boot Camp will be happening at 9:00 CT and I am so ready to see my son!  I’ll have him for the day, so I thought it would be fun to make a celebratory banner for the hotel room.  I was smart and booked a bedroom suite so there’s an actual living room to relax and socialize in.  I wanted to keep the banner CAS (Clean And Simple) since that seems to be the style that Marcus likes. I wanted to keep with the Navy colors, but just couldn’t bring myself to use gold…didn’t seem quite masculine enough. So, Kraft to the rescue!  OMGoodness! I’m so excited!  I will be sure to bring a whole box of tissues! (P.S. Don’t laugh at my shadow on the photo…I laid the banner out on the floor and didn’t realize I was in my own way!)
