Black & Gold with Red

A friend asked me last weekend if I would make her a graduation card for a relative. Sure, I said! She sent a photo of the announcement and wanted me to use the colors in it.  I love how it turned out and so did she!

My first card she liked but wanted me to change something on it which was so easy!  And, I admit, the change was better.

And all products used are from Spellbinders or Fun Stampers Journey.

This is the first card.  Since it is for a young man I didn't want too much bling but still wanted to make it amazing.

This is the remake.  Definitely much better!  Did you notice there is no stamping? I did learn something when die cutting the sentiment.  I lined my card stock with a piece of White Liner Sheet then, leaving the die cut in the die I carefully placed the die on my card stock and pressed it firmly in place.  When I pulled off the die the die cut stayed.  Then I used my crease tool to press it into place permanently. So much easier than trying to glue!!

I embossed the layer of black with a diamond grid then splattered the layer with Gold Silk. Weird how some of the speckles look more  bronze.  The 2020 is from Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for Nov. 2018, Everything Under the Tree.  It's on sale right now.
I hope your graduates are having a memorable celebration!
