Hey there! Welcome to day 2 of the May release week festivities. So, after yesterday’s card went so well, I decided that I would try to continue my clean & simple thing because it truly is a challenge for me.
We’re all showcasing, Here’s Lookin’ at You!, and I must say that if you need to add a set with a great simple and masculine font, then this is for you. Emma covered pretty much any word we use to refer to males.
Since we’re smack in the middle of May and June is around the corner, I decided to make a graduation themed card. I started with a Kraft A2 card base. And, I wavered between using brown or black ink for my sentiments. Generally speaking, I don’t use a lot of black ink for sentiments. My go to is usually Stampin’ Up’s Early Espresso, but I feel like black ink makes a much bolder statement on a CAS card.
I used my grid mat and a ruler to draw a straight line to use a starting point for my sentiments. I used three different sentiment stamps on my card. I have found that preplanning is paramount when making clean cards. After drawing my line in pencil, I stamped, “congratulations,” from Gift Card Sentiments. I then stamped, “grad,” and, “you’re simply the BEST!,” from Here’s Lookin’ at You!
Now, here’s the deal, I had absolutely no trouble stamping the sentiments. But, I messed up on stamping the cap FOUR times! After I finally got it right, I took the card back to my score board and scored lines a fourth of an inch in on each side.
This wouldn't be a party w/o GIVEAWAYS!
