Well, there's another weekend ahead - you ready?

Morning all,

I was recently commissioned to make two graduation cards, they didn't have to be graduation specific but definitely female themed and congratulatory - here's the first one.


My card
  
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of DCWV patterned cardstock (from the Old World stack) cut to mat
  • Snippets of card in white, black and the DCWV patterned cardstock, for my image panel
  • Image stamped using black ink
  • Pencils used to colour
  • Fiskars sentiment stamped in black and the line of dots from the same set stamped in the orange
  • Orange ink applied to the outer edge of the insert card panel
  • Stardust stickles used to bling up the image
STAMPS: Fiskars "All Year Cheer" and knock off of S.U. "Beautiful You" (bought in good faith)
INKS: Memento tuxedo black and tangelo
PENCILS: Derwent coloursoft
And, here's the second card ... hopefully sufficiently different but still very definitely congratulatory!

Not surprised the Commissionee liked them and I'm SURE the recipient did! Both are brilliant.

Happy Friday!
