The first card is for Graduation obviously, lol. I made for someone special in my life… The ring bearer of my wedding just graduated high school last week… our flower girl had a baby last year and now, my ring bearer graduated high school….boy, do I feel old or what?! LOL!


I stamped Live, Laugh, Love for the background mat using pale blue ink (I masked the edge of the mat so that the image was placed inside of the embossed lines. The number “2010” was cut out with Cricut machine and the same image was stamped with black ink. The sentiment is the one from NEW Quartet Complements Series.






The next card was created with Dragonfly (102-F) and Daisy (2625-C). The daisies were colored with white gel pen and attached pearls. I used border punch on the top of the green mat. The dragonflies were colored with Copic markers and added Stickles on the wings. Live, Laugh, Love stamp was stamped with Brilliance peacock ink…it’s very pretty gradation in real life :) and the same pearls I used for daisies and the ribbons were used for the embellishments.
