Convocation Card

So my sister's best friend (whose been kind of a sister for me) is convocating this week. My sister requested a card for her and this is what I arrived at. I just love this card!!! I used my Wildcard Cricut Cartridge to cut the grad cap and made the hanging thing with some gold cord. I used the SU Alphabet roller clear embossed on the Really Rust paper behind the Grad Cap. I layered that on some textured dp in Always Artichoke and added the rhinestone brads and purple/copper ribbon. The Grad Cap opens to say "If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished!". This is all on a 5x5 Elegant Eggplant card. The inside layers the same colours and says Congratulations in black embossing. This is one of those cards that just came together and I am really happy with it!

Gemini Card

So about a month ago, I got a request for a card for a Gemini. I pondered and pondered and went through my stamp sets several times. My Cricut cartridges were no help on this one. Finally, after reading about Gemini, I learned some of the characteristics. One of them was a clear two sides to the personality so that's were I went with this card. I coloured the Angel Anya from The Greeting Farm split, as two people. I used my aqua painter with the inks and added some Twinkling H20s. I used Dazzling Diamonds on the wings and some stickles on the Halo. The Kiwi Kiss behind her is the accent colour. I used a Friendship Wheel embossed with Iridescent Ice on this piece. The little flower is from Fresh Cuts, Clear Embossed with a brad added from Basic Grey's Porcelain Collection. The sentiment is from a general word set I got at Michael's. The front printed paper is also from the Porcelain Collection while the inside printed paper is from a Costco collection. I hope you like her!
