Couple of weeks ago my neighbour's eldest daughter graduated from Edinburgh after obtaining her degree in
This week her younger sister also dons her cap and gown as she too graduates (Education) and I was told that the trim on her gown was 'a strawberry colour' so have tried to reflect that with this card!
I had a bit of fun making this, used up a few odd bits of coloured card and paper too.
The black and white card is linen textured and has quite a bit of 'depth' in real life. The red card is from a Stampin Up pack - don't know what the actual colour is called!
I used a scrap of peach parchment paper for the neckline, added a teeny piece of silver 'beading' and a sparkly gem to make a 'necklace'.
I suppose the 'neckline' of the blouse could have been a bit tidier but the card was a bit thick to get a clean crease - (hope it doesn't spoil the overall look) and I glued on a couple of tiny buttons from my stash.
Mortar board made with the same cardstock, the Tassel made with embroidery thread, another scrap of cream parchment paper rolled up and tied with the same thread and a PC generated sentiment to finish!
