This was the perfect challenge at the perfect time for me as my son is graduating from Highschool. He told me a few years ago that he prefers receiving my handmade cards more than a store bought one, so I definitely wanted to make one. And for a special occasion such as this one I decided to make a "fun fold" card.
I had this idea of using an eagle in flight image but had no stamp, so google came to the rescue and I found this gorgeous eagle coloring page which I sized down and printed on Neenah 80lb card stock. Colored with Copic markers and fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors.
This is how the card looks when closed.
I used an old script type background stamp from Whimsy Stamps (no longer available) with white craft ink (options) on the black card stock. The stars are all die cuts.
The brushed gold paper was part of a Hero Arts stamp kit. The graduation cap is by Stampin Up, another oldie. A wire which I had in my small jewelry making stash was used to make it stand up.
Sentiments were typed up on the computer and printed out. "Embrace your Journey" came from Tim Holtz' Quotations sticker set.
Thanks so much for visiting!
