A Graduation Card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I started with a kraft base stamped with “Dot Spot” in enchanted evening and pure poppy.  I ran a piece of spring rain cardstock through my Big Kick with the Circle Cyclone texture plate then rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper.  I love my Corner Chomper, such a great investment!  I cut a strip of enchanted evening cardstock with the small scalloped border die and stamped the grad hat from “For the Graduate” in Versamark and embossed with Transcendence embossing powder.  I die cut the car and stamped the image in enchanted evening, then cut the window with an exacto knife.  I made a little tassel with embroidery floss to hang in the window.  I remember I couldn’t wait to hang my tassel from my rear view mirror when I graduated!  I added some gems for headlights and the sentiment in pure poppy ink. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
