Graduation Card



This is the Graduation card I made for my brother who just graduated 8th grade this last Wednesday! Our schools go late here!

This was another quick card. Time has just been flying by and I have not had the time to stamp!!! Frustrating, but anyway....I love how this one turned out!! All products are from Stampin' Up! The colors of the card stock are very vanilla, blue bayou, chocolate chip, close to cocoa, basic black, barely banana, and old olive. I used chocolate chip and blue bayou ink. The I used was Best Friends Alphabet Lower and the linen background which is now retired. I do not have a graduation set, so I improvised. I made the hat out of the 1 3/8 square punch, the word window punch (trimmed it a bit), and the slot punch. I realized that I did not have a black brad to attach the tassel, so I used a silver one and a sharpie to make it black! More improvising!!! I mounted the hat with dimensionals. I used the round tab punch to add another element to the card and wrote Congrats on it. Then I stamped the word grad with my letters. I also used the ticket corner punch! I love that punch! I then wrote some loving sisterly words of advice on the inside!!! :O)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
