Today I've got something a bit different to share. There are two, two, two cards for the price of one, LOL! You see, I have two cousins who will be graduating high school very soon and I wanted to make a couple of personalized cards for the occasion. When I got the new Cheeky Geeky in the mail on Monday I knew that she was just the girl for these special cards. She's playful and cute but just stylish enough to still be cool for the girls. ;)
I kept the over-all design pretty simple with not a lot of fuss and used pretty much the same layout for both. I went online and found their school logos which I printed out on glossy photo paper so that they look like stickers. Then I colored each of the Geekies up to match their school colors. The "Congratulations, you did it!" sentiment is actually stamped on the inside of each card because I wrote up a little poem to put on the front. I don't know if you can read it in the pic so I'll add it here as well;
"You've hit the books,
four years it took.
You've done your best,
and passed the tests.
Now it's time for cap and gown,
across the stage you're walking down.
Grab that diploma, don't hesitate...
this day is yours to graduate!"
Like I said, simple but personalized and I know that they won't be getting cards like this from anyone else. :)
Have a fab Friday my friends. I hope that you're able to make some time for stamping this weekend!
