It is my sketch this week on Cute Card Thursday, hope you like it!
We are sponsored this week by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
This week I decided it was time I made my eldest daughter's graduation card. I found this sweet Mo Manning image a few weeks ago and decided it was just right for her. Her graduation cap and gown will be white, hence the colouring here! The image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
The swirls are by Recollections.
The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps and is part of the
Birthday Postage Stamps collection designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs,
it is so perfect for all kinds of occasions, definitely the one I have used the most!
The little hearts are Martha Stewart and I gave them a paint treatment and then topped it with crackle glaze, it doesn't show up well on here though. The gorgeous papers are Basic Grey 'Capella'.
As my daughter is not big on cards ( I know, can you believe it?) I decided to make her an easel card with a drawer to add a little trinket to. I couldn't find an actual tutorial for this but just made a large drawer roughly following the tutorials for the small drawers and then created the top and bottom layers to fit.
