For the Grad!


















Happy Wednesday! I had originally planned on showing you some more Newsprint Reveal cards today, but unfortunately I hit a few bumps creating them - so I'll share them with you tomorrow.

It's been rainy and cold here the last few days, DS had a track meet last nite, brrr was it ever cold. It dropped about 15 degrees while we were there, I think the car thermometer said 48 when we finally got back in the car.

Anyhow, in a few weeks he'll be graduating from Junior High, and I thought I get a jump on his Graduation card. I'll be making some invites, to send out to family, but they won't be as layered as this one!

The inspiration for my layout came from Stamps and Smiles Sketch #12., I rotated the sketch, and put a sentiment in place of the small circles. I started out with CuttleBug Highlights Technique from a past TJNL issue on my Brocade card stock panels. (Scroll down to the bottom of my post for more information on The Technique Junkies Newsletter)

I then stamped the 3 Step Graduation Set from Kitchen Sink Stamps for my focal image and sentiments on White card stock. My son's school color is Royal Blue - thus the color scheme. I stamped the cap in Brocade Blue, Brocade Blue again and Brilliant Blue. The tassel is stamped in Summer Sun using both images. The sentiments are stamped in Momento Ink Tuxedo Black using a SAMJ. The panels are adhered with dimensionals to the base card.

cute card and brrr, I'm so glad I don't live there!!! We are in shorts & tanks already ;-)

I'm sure you realize this but your grad card says Class of 2008 instead of 2009??
