Greetings traveller. With May now upon us, many of the students of the various universities and institutions across the realm are graduating. Today I received a raven from one such lass, imploring the Crafters Guild's to help with a special crafty quest. She needed a dozen invites for a graduation feast she was planning for her fellow students at the Builder's University in the western hills. Quest accepted.
This card set was made for a special order from one of my workmates at the horse and carriage repair shop. She was graduating from University this year and was throwing a party for her class. I started by cutting all the grad hats using the Wrap It Up cartridge and adding some glitter to their tassels. Next I cut all the “2014” numbers using the Car Decals cartridge.
This one was embossed using my Cuttlebug and a polka dot folder. The sentiment was stamped using the CAS-Ual Friday “Exclamations” set.
This one’s sentiment was stamped using a Close to My Heart set.
This one was also stamped using the same Close to My Heart set.
This last one was embossed using the swiss dots folder and the sentiment was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiments” set.
The inside I printed out the words on my computer (don’t mind that black smudge, I was “erasing” the location info in iPhoto and it made a black smudge where some of the words were) and then stamped some stars using the Lawn Fawn “Critters Ever After” set.
The envelopes were all stamped with stars from the Lawn Fawn set to make ‘em all matchy-match and also earned me +888 starry XP points.
This card will graduate into the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #131: Three Thirds (used 3 stars)
I was able to complete the crafty quest and, along with a stack of gold coins, I also earned myself some bonus XP points for swiftness, which will surely come in handy. I carefully packed the invites and sent them by owl to the lass.
