Finally blogger is up and running again. I wanted to post this blog yesterday, but couldn't do it until blogger was back in service.
Yesterday Marie attended her best friend's, Allison, Pinning Ceremony at Worcester State College. A Pinning Ceremony is a welcoming of newly-graduated nurses into the nursing profession. We are all very excited for and proud of Allison.
Marie used a dress card template from Paper Crafts magazine's April/May 2009 issue to create a card for Allison. The pink paper you see in the background is not a part of the card. I placed the dress on that paper so that it would be easier for you to see. Marie cut her dress from white tag and then ran it through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. She free cut a collar and some pockets and adhered them to the card with pop dots. The stethoscope, pin, and nursing instruments are stickers.
I searched and found a link for the dress pattern. It's such a versatile pattern and could be used for any kind of dress such as a First Communion one, a uniform, etc.
The sketch I used for my card is one I turn to again and again. The paper is from the dcwv Cotton Bloom Stack. Thanks Peggy! I love this paper and have been using some of it nearly everyday.
The smaller squares are 1.25" and the larger ones are 1.5". The instruments are stickers. I stamped "congrats" on the clipboard sticker. The message inside of the card reads, "Hope your big day is as special as you are!" and was stamped with a clear stamp from the Hero Arts CL336 Happy Graduation set.
Enjoy today's sunshine everyone!
