After making cards for my grand-niece and grand-nephew I thought I was done, d-o-n-e with graduation cards. O non mon cher, it seems it has just become. My sister who obviously enjoys the tedium that is standing in front of the cards at places like Hallmark, Target, or even Walgreens actually wanted me to make a graduation card for her. If you’re a Stampin’ Up demonstrator like I am you’ll understand my trepidation. I have to get this right, I’ve got to win her over. Ok I say, what color? And here comes an answer that makes want to pull my hair, Blue. Not Navy, not light blue, not even turquoise just blue. What do I use Night of Navy, Pool Party maybe Dapper Denim, I don’t know. I think I may have made the Charlie Brown noise, you know, argh.
Somehow I managed to calm down and be rational. If I just went to the store and bought a card would I freak out about the color? So I took a breath and looked to Jeanie Stark’s blog Just Stamping because she’s been doing something really fun and interesting version of the ABC’s. So I decided to do a play on her “G” blog entry, G is for Gate fold. I did G is for Graduation Gate gold card.
