Keep Calm and Study On Card: The Graphics Fairy To The Rescue

Keep Calm Study Card

The daughter of one of my besties is off to London for a Summer study abroad program so I whipped up a card to send her off.

I knew I wanted to do a variation of the "Keep Calm" theme but also wanted a British flag so went  to my go to source: The Graphics Fairy . I downloaded the image, then aged it using a graphics program which I also used to generate the text. 

Made a 5x7 card from red card stock, layered with a vintage looking red and white striped paper from the Union Square stack by Recollections ( Michaels), added two strips of American Crafts white glitter tape and mounted the focal image on gold and cream cardstocks.

Added a couple strips of washi tape, gold rhinestones, and a silver paper crown. She may be there for the birth of the new Royal baby so it seemed appropriate.

College student in London….I couldn’t resist a reminder to actually study! Not that it’s really needed. She’s a smart young lady and she’ll do great.
