It's Graduation Season!

Spring brings a LOT of graduations - it seems pretty much April to June someone is celebrating a milestone achievement. Today I have a graduation design that is easy to make with the help of some fabulous dies, and beautiful papers - and, of course, my MINI MISTI!

Every school but one that I have attended has had the colors of blue and gold. From elementary school to my university (in another state), and ALL of the schools in the town where I currently live - blue and gold are popular choices. This classy card uses amazing papers and two sets available from Stamp Simply.

I cut a piece of the beautiful Ink Drops Candy 6x6 by Craft Consortium for my background, and stamped one of the Graduation Sentiments twice along the bottom. I used the gridlines on my MINI MISTI to line it up. I used another small piece of the paper and stamped "To the graduate" -- both are with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. All edges were distressed with a distress tool. I cut the cap and diploma from gold shimmer cardstock, and popped them up with foam tape on their matted panels. For a little extra shimmer, I tied metallic thread around the center of the card, fanning it out for interest.

Supplies from Stamp Simply:
  • Graduation Sentiments
  • Congrats Grad Steel Dies
  • Craft Consortium Ink Drops Candy 6x6
  • VersaFine Ink Pad - Onyx Black

Other Supplies:

  • distress tool (for card edges)
  • gold shimmer, dark blue, light blue cardstock
  • metallic blue thread
  • foam tape
