So Much Happy with a nod to Jack Wills. My wonderful niece recently graduated from University College London with a Masters in Biological Sciences. In the four years that she has been at University she has worked incredibly hard, not only at her studies, but also in getting an Instagram Account up and running showcasing affordable fashion (OK, there is some less affordable in the mix too!). She now has well over 20,000 followers and is now seen as an Instagram Influencer. If you want to check her out, just click HERE. Why do I mention this? Because I remember when she first started to get an interest in fashion and she was passionate about Jack Wills Clothing.
Jack Wills Inspired Card
We are having another colour Challenge in the Team, with Night of Navy, Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party, colours which, together remind me of Jack Wills branding. I thought it would be fun to make a graduation card for my niece using these colours, so hence the background to this card. By the way, she has done some work for Jack Wills now and admits that her teenage self would never have believed that it would have been possible. I hope you agree that a Jack Wills inspired Graduation card is appropriate.
I used our Foam Adhesive Sheets to stick the Pool Party HAPPY letters onto the front of the card. The banner is die cut in Night of Navy and then Pool Party so I could clip the Pool Party banners off and overlay them on the Night of Navy. I stamped the ‘graduation’ in Night of Navy on Pool Party, then punched it with the Banners Pick a Punch. The finishing touch are some Holiday Rhinestones in Night of Navy.
Ombre Effect Card
The second version of my card uses the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper. I love all the ombre patterns in particular, but chose one that fades from Gorgeous Grape to Mango Melody. This has to be one of my favourites. To pick up on the purple shading, I added some stamping in Blackberry Bliss, I needed a colour that would work both above and below the die cut area but wanted to avoid Black. I think the Blackberry Bliss hits the right note.
Because I wanted to do something a little different for the HAPPY this time, I pulled the Rainbow Glimmer Paper and selected the area that is nearest to the same colours as the paper. I am really happy with how this turned out, the ombre effect is almost exactly the same as the paper. The finishing touch was to add some of the Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins, just the right amount of bling!
