HIMCR #351 freestyle theme challenge featuring two graduation cards

College Graduation Card for my niece is my theme for card #1:

her college colors are blue and yellow/gold

Card's layout for front panel is based on this sketch from Page Maps' Card Maps (as shared in the Facebook group 100 Pattern Papers Challenge):

The border under the birds is shown with the dot stickers along the bottom edge of light yellow cardstock. The birds got changed to butterflies (that are favorites of this niece) and moved up by the bow. I made the sentiment strip deeper in order to accommodate the stickers. This sketch is part of the May 2018 vertical card map selection. They've got 2 teams of DT inspirational cards using the sketches so take time whether you do scrapbooking, card-making, journaling, or all three.

#351 challenge with a freestyle theme and my theme is graduation milestone:

The 2 cards (one above and one below) are for the design team for HIMCR (Hiding In My Craft Room) with this week's prize sponsor being Laurie's Craft Room. Use the blog link to read all the details for participating as a crafter, finding links for the sponsor, viewing and accessing links for DT crew's blogs to leave feedback, and much more.

High School graduate's (daughter of cousin) card #2:

her high school's colors are dark wine red and gold

a. Both have combinations of stickers from different sources: Wal-Mart, Pen + Gear, and Create 365. 
b. Base cardstocks for both cards comes from Colorbok with the wise owl's base being a marbled print thin cardstock. (and also the light yellow CS used in Card #1 is Colorbok)
c. Gold glitter paper was purchased at Dollar Tree as part of a 3 color pack of glitter papers.
d. Wise owl upcycled note card front panel was another Dollar Tree purchase. I'm just using like a patterned paper.
e. Black ribbon on card #1 was re-used from a cosmetic bag bought at Dollar Tree.
f. The 3-D butterfly stick-ons were also a Dollar Tree recent purchase.
g. The layout for card #2 was also from Page Maps' Card Maps May 2018 sketches but one of the horizontal layout designs:

and a couple more pics of Card #2=

Card #2's recipient is eventually headed to medical school, so we certainly hope and pray that this planned goal of hers gets achieved. If she does, she will be the 2nd one in her generation of my grandparents' great-grandchildren to do this. Whoa!

We've got one more graduate who is a special guy in our lives, a great nephew of my husband's, that I will be making a card for very soon. Stay tuned to see what I create for him.

Until next time, Becca
