I got lucky, and just before I found out about the challenge-- got my now brother in law's senior graduation announcement. His school colors are Red, White & Bling (aka silver) so I based my card for him on the challenge.
1 piece of white cardstock
1 sheet of red cardstock
1 sheet of white cardstock
Accent Essentials Cartridge
Studio G, wood 'congrats' stamp
red sharpie brand pen
white & bling ribbon
silver & black rhinestones
On the inside, I typed out his class motto in a pretty font- it is from Peas for Fonts, an awesome site that supplies FREE font downloads for scrapbooking and card making. I use them all the time and they range from really goofy and fun- to serious and pretty. So, I printed it on the computer in a nice looking font, I matted it with red and stuck it inside, as well as made another similar star for the inside. I left plenty of room for a nice note from us!
Papercraft Star is a new, challenge blog. It is unique in the way that the public can vote-- yes, VOTE on their favorite entry for the challenge. The winner is then a 'people's choice winner' instead of a random drawing. Those are fun, but I tend to be a little competitive so it is fun to see a real 'winner'! There is also a forum over on Papercraft Star where you can talk and ask questions as well as get to know the designers and learn new techniques and information.
