Graduation Part One

Having spent some time yesterday rearranging the piles in my stamp room, I cleared off a big enough spot to make some graduation cards. Here is the first one (for a girl) -- I'll be posting more of them later this week. Supplies Used: Memory Box Card (Sugar Plum); Stampin Up Chocolate Chip Classic Ink; Papertrey Ink Little Lady (scroll dots stamped twice); Brown Prima Accent Flower; SU's Looks Like Spring Punch with which I punched out a flower using some 6x6 patterned paper from the Sugar collection by Memory Box; pearl accents; Hero Arts Happy Graduation stamp. What I especially like about the Memory Box cards is that they are made with duplex paper -- meaning that the insides of all their cards are white. I think it gives the card a more professional look. They also came with matching envelopes and I stamped a few of the swirl dots on the envelope as well. On the down side, most of my inks are Stampin Up inks, and they do not match the Memory Box color palette. Thus, the need to buy more inks -- of course!

  5. Oooh, I like this card! It is very feminine, elegant and very pretty. I love the little doodle that you added. I wish now I had gotten the PaperTrey stamp set with the doodle in it. :)Love the tiny pearls that you added. It completes the card.

  8. Pretty color on this. Simple and feminine. Yes, it looks like a difficult color to match. Almost Mauve, but prettier. Love the dotted scroll with the punched flowers & brad. Very nice!
