Hello lovelies and happy Saturday!! I hope your weekend is getting along really nicely. We recently celebrated my son´s graduation from high school and of course I had created a DIY gratulation card for that occation for him. Here is what I did:
Since he was wearing a grey suit and was about to receive presents in grey, silver and black colors, I chose to create the card in the same colors.
I first stenciled the background with a Tonic Studios stencil and a grey stamp ink. Next I die cut the „Congratulations“ (in German: Glückwunsch) sentiment background piece from silver mirror cardstock and the main sentiment piece from black cardstock (both by Tonic Studios). I adhered them on top of each other before adhering the layered sentiment onto the card base. For decoration I chose some wooden stars. Have been hoarding them in my stash from my Studio Calico Kit submission times from way back.
And I also created a matching envelope to go with the card by adding some stenciling and stamping onto the white envelope, just leaving a tiny area in the middle empty to be able to add his name there.
It was truly a very special day – not just for him – but also for us, his parents. One proud mom moment :).
Happy, crafty weekend, lovelies,
