Hello everyone! Today is my day to be featured on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog. I decided to share a graduation card I made for a friend using Fetching Friendship and Simply Sentimental along with some pretty graduation themed papers by Doodlebug (I loooove Doodlebug papers!!):
The recipient of this card owns a beagle mix and although Fetching Friendship is really a Labrador Retriever set, I thought that by itself this dogie image might resemble a beagle mix. I colored him to match his coloring with Copic markers and fussy cut him out. I created the graduation cap from a scrap piece of black cardstock by cutting a rhombus of the appropriate size and them rounded off the bottom of another piece to create the piece under the flat top. To create the tassel I tied a knot in an end of a small piece of red embroidery floss and affixed it to the center of the top of the cap using a rhinestone stud (which also serves as his license and tags, gotta have those!); here is a close up:
I created the sentiment using three different sentiment pieces from Simply Sentimental, then punched a few glittery and shiny stars for accents. And TA DA, card complete! I hope you like it.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to see my creations and for all the kind comments you take the time to leave, I appreciate every single one of them. have a great day!
