Congrats Grads! --- Blue Ribbon
It was a weekend filled with Graduation Parties! Which also meant that I needed to create some cards. One of my girlfriends also needed several cards - so I went to town.
This one was super easy to duplicate, and I liked it because I could change the colors to coordinate with the school colors of the graduate! I even got to try out our new Smoky Slate cardstock - and I really like the color. It's not too dark, it's not too light, and it gives a bit of a silver tone to your crafts. The cards we needed were all for boys, so to grunge the card up a bit, I used the Color Spritzer Tool to spritz on some red color. Then I used a mix of Platinum Shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol mixed in one of our spray bottles, but instead of spraying, I unscrewed the tube and flicked the hose portion, creating some splatters instead. You can really see them here:
Like I said before, this card was easy to switch out the colors to coordinate with the school colors:
I also used a different embossing folder - I think I like the chevron one better, but this lent a masculine touch also.
Hope you like! Let me know by leaving me a comment!
