I have another Friday Mashup Challenge for you! It just so happens that the day I was getting ready to head to my craft room to make the card for this challenge, I got an invitation to my Niece’s graduation. What luck!

  • Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Sassy Salutations
  • Card Stock: Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
  • Ink: Versamark, Certainly Celery
  • Accessories: In Color Designer Brads, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Silver embossing powder, Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Paper Piercer, Stampin’ Pierce Mat

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project for "Graduation".
  2. Create a project with "any kind of Embossing".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Embossing for Graduation".

My niece loves lime green, so I went with Lucky Limeade as my primary color. I cut a piece of Lucky Limeade card stock 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored it at 4-1/4”. I stamped the swirls from Everything Eleanor all over the card front in Versamark ink. I covered the stamped images with Iridescent Ice embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and heated it with my Heat Tool.

Next I cut a piece of Brushed Silver card stock 2” x 5-1/2” and adhered it into the center of the card front. Next I stamped a scrap of Whisper White card stock with the swirls from Everything Eleanor in Certainly Celery ink. 

I stamped the greeting from Sassy Salutations onto the card stock in Versamark ink, covered the stamped image with Silver embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and heated it with my Heat Tool. I cut out the greeting with the label from the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I used my Paper Piercer and Stampin’ Pierce Mat to pierce a hole in each end of the label and added a Lucky Limeade designer brad. I adhered the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I was in a hurry so I kept this card really quick and simple. What do you think? 


  1. Very elegant with the swirls and the embossing... you could use this for a lot of occasions.

  2. I love the look of the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Especially with the silver paper in the background. fab card!

  3. Funny, I bought Everything Eleanor for the Flourish.....but will of course use the other pieces also now that I have the full set. This is soooo pretty! Your color combo is wonderful and of course the Iridescent Ice is really a wonderful accent...your niece is sure to love her card!

  4. What a fab graduation card! Love the sparkly swirly background and the silver embossed greeting looks great with the green background and stamping!

  5. I think it's great, Amanda. The simplicity of it is great...the details of the Silver embossing and the iridescent ice make it so stunning.

  6. Fantasic graduation card! Green is my favorite color and the touch of silver is perfect!
