For my project today I used the Congratulations stamp set and made this graduation card for my youngest son who is graduating high school next month. I can't believe my baby will be leaving the nest in August for college. sniff sniff I'm sure gonna miss the little turd! But good news is that he won't be far from home. Only 2 1/2 hours! Yippee!! lol I used Mary's technique for a shaker card by cutting out 8 pieces of the frame I wanted to use and glued them all together except for the 8th one. It made it nice and thick to place my red/white/blue sequins in. Why red/white/blue sequins?? Well my son's school colors are grey and maroon and that was what I intended on using until my son and I were talking. What's when I found out he preferred their athletic colors of red/white/blue. So that's what I used. My enamel dots are homemade from pony beads, they were the tiny one ones, 5 mm in size. My sentiment on the front of my card is from the Cardz TV Congratulations stamp set. My grad hat and date is from My Creative Time. I would have used Mary's graduation set but I couldn't find one in her store. Mary, we need a stamp set for graduations. lol
On the left inside those are just 2 studio g sentiments and I used a grad cap from My Creative Time. And my sentiments on the right hand side of the card are from My Creative Time too. Like I said I would have used a graduation set from Mary had she had one. And maybe there are sets that Mary has that might have sentiments for graduation in them and I just missed them. Not sure. Thanks for stopping by today and thank you for all your kind comments! They always make me smile :-)
Just a note: This card wasn't my idea. I got this idea from here.
