Yesterday I went to the grand opening of a new craft store in my area. Found a really cheap ($1) graduation stamp, came home and got busy! I had purchased a card of graduation caps a few weeks ago with the intention of making some cards to go with the University Photo Trays I sell on ETSY. They sat on my desk for a while because I just wasn’t inspired to finish them. With the addition of the stamp, the card came together in about 5 minutes.
I used Colorbox Gold ink to stamp the image and then heat embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle "Agatha" embossing powder. It’s one of my favorites because it’s black with gold glitter in it. Framed the image with gold paper and then raised it on a layer of black chipboard. Mounted all of that on black cardstock. Created some custom ribbon by spraying white seam binding with Perfect Pearls Mist in Sunflower Sparkle. I scrunched up the seam binding and dried it with a heat gun that left it with just the right amount of interest in the ribbon. Added the graduation cap and pronounced it ….. finished!
I’m loving it: hope you do too.
