It has been a frantic couple of weeks with scholars getting the results of their A-levels & GCSEs & as you know, without the right results you can't get to study at either the University or Sixth Form College of your choice or even study the subjects you want to. I ended up making a few cards - mercifully all the same - to give to those kids I know gaining a large clutch of passes between them. I just have to hope now that they all can go on to study where they want to at the start of the new term.
The number of cards I had to squeeze in between my DT cards (not to mention housework!) LOL, meant that I had a go at a CAS design. I also had to bear in mind the ages of the recipients when selecting the image itself, as well as the colours I could realistically use, especially when half of the kids the cards are going to are male. As the focal point I used this perfect image from Elizabeth Dulemba, coloured it up with Promarkers & set it in front of a lined paper dp -as if torn from a school book & clipping the two together with a coloured paper clip. To finish it off I added the horizontal ribbon & the sentiment printed simply from the PC & put the layers on a very classy looking white card base.
