This week’s color challenge had me thinking along the lines of a masculine card, but since we are also in the middle of graduation season, I went that route instead.
I picked my colors based on the challenge, but you could easily change colors to suit your recipient, or their school. And since there are different greetings available with “Celebrate Today” (the set that goes with the balloon framelits), you could also change the focal point on the pennant. I can imagine a birthday cake in that position, or some kind of baby items.
On my card, I used the same banner framelit to cut both the Blackberry Bliss and the Soft Sky pennants. I heat embossed the “Class of 2015” stamp on the Blackberry Bliss cardstock before cutting with the banner framelit, and then I used my trimmer to narrow both sides. I cut out an additional embossed “2015” by hand, and glued it over the first image. The Soft Sky pennant is embossed with the Lucky Stars folder.
I think heat embossing is always worth the extra effort – especially for a big event like a graduation. The same could be said for the Silver Foil and Fancy Foil Vellum. I am so glad that those specialty papers are also featured in the upcoming Annual Catalog!
