Hats off to the Grad

We had a nephew graduate high school this year. I used the school colors (green, white, and a bit of red) along with their mascot (an apple) to create this card.

The very first Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday video (mim1) was about creating sentiment collages and it has been on my to-try list ever since. I even pinned a card by Betsy Veldman where she did a collage too. Now, I’m finally trying it myself!

It was fun picking the sentiments – and I could have made many more cards with all the options I came up with. The hardest bit was knowing when to stop with the sentiments – and what color to do them in. In the end, I kept it simple with the amount of sentiments, and kept the red to a minimum because it always gets focus.

Thanks for taking a peek!
