Due to the fact that when I sit down to make a card I have absolutely no clue what I'm going to do, it is just easier to color all of them then go for it. I decided to make at least one of these my daughter's graduation card (the blue one). The other could be used as a graduation card as well, but both are most certainly uplifting and inspirational sentiments.
For the green and orange card I used a kraft paper card base and used scrap papers that I had laying on my desk (this is a common thing for me to just grab papers from off of my messy work space and use it on the project I'm working on). I used my new tag die set for both cards. First I used an embossing folder, then cut the tag out. I used my buttfly thinlette from Stampin Up for the butterflies. As for the funky background...I used some copper and some silver glitter mist spray, then used some fun glittery dobber paints (they smell like fruits). I added a scrap string of pearls, some flowers, some gems and a bow. Isn't it funny that when we make things and look at the finished project we wish we would've done something else? In this case, I wish I'd used an embossing folder on the orange layer...Oh well, I still like how it turned out. :)
For the blue card I used two of the tag dies from my new set, a small brown 'lace' doily, more of the butterflies, gems, hemp twine, string pearls, flowers and the fun DP is from a pad set called Lost & Found from My Mind's Eye. For both cards I added the girls using pop dots.
