It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our fabulous hostess, Karren Johnson, is providing us a slimline card sketch all the way from New Zealand. I love how technology makes that so easy! Take a look at her fun sketch:
Before I even looked at the sketch, I knew I was going to make a graduation card because our son is graduating next week! He graduated last year with his Bachelor’s degree, but didn’t get to participate in any graduation activities because of, you know, Covid. Next week, he’ll be graduating with his Masters in Accounting from the University of Alabama and I can’t wait to celebrate with him. This handsome guy had a wonderful four years at Alabama and he’ll be starting his career with Ernst & Young in Atlanta in July.
For his card, I used the retiring set, Monogram Messages. I paired it with some miscellaneous graduation stamps I have held onto over the years and some old dsp that was in my stash.
I started by applying some embossing paste, which I haven’t used in a very long time, over a retired stars stencil. I love the texture it adds.
I printed Cole’s name off on some card stock and cut it out and pasted it onto the card to personalize it. Plus, his name starts with C, so it seemed fitting for the theme of the card.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
