Another Grad Card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s funny how some years no one I know is graduating and other years there are so many.  This is one of the “so many” years so I have yet another graduation card to share.

I started with a base of enchanted evening.  I cut a piece of spring rain about a 1/4 inch smaller on all sides and stamped the argyle with Versamark ink on the top 2/3 of the cardstock.  I then stamped over it with the dotted image in enchanted evening ink. Along the bottom I stamped the image from “For A Graduate” in enchanted evening masking off the Class of part of the stamp with a piece of tape.  I then stamped the sentiment in scarlet jewel and rounded the top corners.  I die cut a piece of scarlet jewel with the Mat Stack 1 die and stamped the image in Versamark.  I then embossed the image with Transcendence embossing powder.  I tied some scarlet jewel satin ribbon around the spring rain cardstock and added an enchanted evening button tied with twine. 

Have a blessed weekend!
