The weekend arrived and you guessed it, one thing led to another and I didn't actually get working on my card until late Sunday evening, and I just assumed I would get my finished card posted before the deadline elapsed. Wrong! I still went ahead with my post, but it just didn't quite feel the same, even though I loved the card I made. So this week I'm not being a laggard, I'm posting and linking early.
Here's What I Made:
Here's this week's MOJO291 sketch and my rendition:
|This week's sketch has two different options - a round or square card. I decided to go with the round version and designed an easel card. I find these fast and easy to do. |
Since "Graduation" is considered one of life's milestones, an Epic Day, I think I succeeded in capturing that feeling in my choice of paper, card stock and sentiments.
I've been absolutely blown away with the Epic Day Designer Paper that was included in the Epic Day This and That Bundle (special ends today) and decided to use one of the designs that featured a map.
One of the best things about using Stampin' Up! products is that everything is co-ordinated. So, once the paper was chosen it was an easy next step to choose the card stock and accessories to complete the project. I simply pulled the co-ordinating colours from the DSP pallette - Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Basic Grey.
