Graduation Card Mania

Because my daughter is graduating from High School this year, that means so are many of her friends. And also, because I have been the children's pastor at FBCOL for 10+ years now, I've known this group of kids since 2nd grade, so they are "my kids" too! I've enjoyed praying for them and watching them grow up to love and serve Christ, and I'm super excited to see them move into the big, scary, crazy world to impact the Kingdom of God is amazing ways!
Here are some of the cards I've been working on this week for this group of kids.

This card is for Taylor's sketch challenge, TESC116; It uses the Stampin Up Set "Fun and Fast Notes" which I still LOVE. I wish you could see the ribbon loopy thing made with the black grossgrain ribbon. It turned out really cool. The paper used is Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray, and Black (Because it's for a Lakewood High Graduate, duh!) The scalloped circle is cut with nestabilities, and the image is colored with copic markers, and a silver metallic pen. The circle/ star images are punches with rhinestone brads in the center of each one. This one is for a guy at our church/ Emily's school, so I was pleased with the masculine look, in spite of the little bling... because after all, every graduate is a STAR, right?

The next three cards all use Taylored Expressions stamps, "Oh the Places You Go!" I knew I was going to need a ton of Graduation Stamps this year, so it was a wise investment for me.
