Congrats Grad!

Since May is the time for Graduations I wanted to include a graduation card in the May Make and Take. In this card we are also saying goodbye to Party Time and Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. But for those at the Make and Take that did not need a Graduation card I had Bring on a Cake (which is not retiring) there so they could substitute the greeting for a birthday one instead. is the card.

  • Stamps: Party Time
  • Card Stock: Real Red, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Basic Black
  • DSP: Basic Gray
  • Ink: Tempting Turquoise
  • Accessories: Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Silver Brads

To begin this card I cut a piece of Real Red card stock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored it at 4-1/4". Next I cut a piece of Basic Gray card stock 3-3/4" x 5", two pieces of Basic Gray DSP 1-1/4" x 3-1/2, and one piece of Basic Gray DSP 2" x 3-1/2". I adhered the Basic Gray DSP onto the Basic Gray card stock. Then I cut a strip of Basic Black card stock 5/8" x 5" and adhered it across the Basic Gray panel. Then I wrapped a piece of Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon around the panel and tied it into a knot. To add just a little bit of bling I used the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to pierce three holes in the upper right hand corner of the panel and added three Silver Brads. This panel was then adhered onto the card front.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 1" x 2-3/4" and stamped the greeting from Party Time in Tempting Turquoise ink. I adhered the greeting onto a 1-1/8" x 2-7/8" piece of Real Red card stock. Then this panel was adhered onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it! Fast, easy, and great! It would be really easy to customize this card with the school colors for your graduate too! What do you think?

These are all the wonderful things used on this project that will no longer be available after May 31st. So if you see one of these that you love make sure you click HERE and order it now before it's gone forever!
