CASE Study Challenge #89!! =)

Pin It

I couldn't wait to play with this weeks challenge over on the CASE Study Blog here:
Look at this Amazing and Bright card made by Agnieszka Malyszek!!  =) So much fun!!
So I decided that beings I have twin cousin graduationg from High School this weekend that I would use this challenge to make their cards!!  I had SO MUCH FUN creating them!!
Here is what I came up with!! =)

Even though they are twins they are VERY much different in likes, styles and personality so I wanted to make these cards to go with their style!!
I started with a black cardstock base for BOTH cards and I knew that I wanted to use the same Bright colors that were used in the INSPIRATION CARD!!
So for the first card I started by cutting a strip of Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue paper and glued it the card base!! I then took the My Favorite Things Alphabet Die set and die cut the word HAPPY out of the front of my card!! I had used some tape to hold the letters down so they wouldn't shift while die cutting and it kinda changed where my card went!! I couldn't get the tape off, so I decided to roll with it and decided to add the tape to the entire front of the strip and then re-die cut the letters and I LOVE the way it turned out!! =) Wasn't planned, but I LOVE it even more than my original idea!! I then cut out the words from the same Pink Paislee paper to spell out Graduation and added them the the bottom of my card!! I also added some Ribbon from May Arts and I just LOVE the way it finished off my card!! =) I couldn't decide if I wanted to add a separate color to the inside of the card and I decide to add a yellow core`dinations cardstock to make the HAPPY pop!! LOVE the color combo together!! =)
For the next card I decided to stay with the same color palette, but I wanted it to be different so I decided to die cut the word HAPPY from the Paper Trey Ink die set and I used several different colors!! I then cut several different ribbons to make a base for my card!! I used the canvas scallop ribbon from Pink Paislee and also the yellow stripped ribbon!! I used a turquoise ruffle ribbon and a pink ric rac from May Arts and I LOVE the way they look all layered together!! I then cut a cute Polaroid from an American Crafts paper with the sentiment "Touch the Sky"!! I thought this was PERFECT for a Graduation card and I LOVED that the Balloons matched my color palette!! I added some May Arts Burlap twine and a button for some added fun!! THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
