Brett is now officially a high school student! His 8th grade promotion was yesterday and this was the card I made to go along with the gift his grandparents and we gave to him.
Purple and Gold are the colors of the school he just left and the one he will spend the next 4 years attending. Not the easiest colors to work with for sure.
The LSS here stocks custom made paper by Scrap Book Customs
for many of the local high schools. I picked up a sheet of the stripes she carries, as well as one with his high school name on it to tuck away for later use.
Instead of the usual white focal panel I chose to use Wild Dandelion by GKD so it wouldn't be too white on white. An stamped accent circle, a few piercings and gingham ribbon made for a CAS style perfect for Brett.
Finished card is 3.25" x 6.5"
Stamps: Simply Said by Paper Smooches
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: Neenah Solar White, GKD Wild Dandelion and Vibrant Violet
Other: Circle punches, Piercing ruler and mat, Gingham ribbon from Michaels, Dimensional foam
Brett is the last of my bunch to promote from the K - 8 school. We had many, many happy years there and now it is time for high school. We are fortunate many of our family lives locally; both sets of grandparents, his aunt and cousin were able to come to the ceremony. The others were there in spirit because they were working.
The first day of summer vacation began with jury duty for me. Fortunately, it was a short day as the entire jury pool was dismissed after 3 hours. Yay, at least a year until I get called again!
