Graduation......and Christmas!

Hello Everyone!!  Oh my goodness - today is a big day in the Jones household!  Our eldest child, Zac, graduates from High School!  All over Australia, the Grade 12 cohort completed their last day of High School and venturing off onto the next stage of their lives.  I am so proud, so happy and totally crying all at the same time!!

 So with that theme in my head, I decided to make a Graduation card using the new Four Panel Card with Layers to cut the black base and then used the laying dies to cut the Menswear Material Paper.
I decided to add a little extra layering and measured and cut extra gold and blue layers around the patterned paper.  I've then used gold card and the Grad Dies, Large Numbers Dies and Sparkling Stars dies to cut all the accent pieces.  I've stamped three sentiments from Dream Big Stamps to embellish the inside and belly band.  'The Congratulations' was cut with Pennant Flags and the 'Proud of You' cut with Pierced Circles.  I've also used the Pennant Flags to cut an extra blue flag.  The Grad Cap is cut with black and gold using the Grad Dies and I've layered it and the stars on a panel of white cut with Pierced Ovals.  Finally I've used the Belly Band Dies to cut the black base and blue layers, used  Circles Dies to cut the sentiment and matted that with black cut with Pierced Circles and framed with a gold star.

For my second project, I've created a Christmas card, because that is surely coming up fast!

I've used white card cut with Center Step with Layers and cut the layers using Christmas Collection 2019.  I wanted to use the 'O Holy Night' sentiment with lots of stars and imagined them hanging, so I've cut lots of stars using silver glitter card and Sparkling Stars Dies.  I've stamped the sentiment from Silent Night Stamps and die cut it with Ovals and matted with glitter card cut with Pierced Ovals. I've 'hung' most of the stars with silver cord and the larger ones I've popped up on foam tape.
