My oldest niece is graduation from high school today! Way to go! I made this card for her and it was inspired by the gift below. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from last year--"Tin of Cards." It's a real keeper and I use it often.
Gold Embossing Powder and Gold Foil Doilies lend a classy element to the bright Melon Mambo card stock. I added some Metallic Sequins and embossed hearts for good measure.
And here is the gift that inspired all those gold elements. The Kate Spade pencil bag will hold this lovely dotted Mini Treat Bag. I used the retired Fancy Gold Vellum to layer over the Melon Mambo. It really mutes the color a lot. More gold with the Bow Clip and Embossed tag from "You're So Sweet." The money and holder were placed inside the dotted bag and then put into the gift bag below. I love the layers and layers that make a gift seem all the more special.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my special card and gift. If you need Stampin' Up! supplies to make your creations, just use my Online Store. I'd love to be your demonstrator.
