Graduation Day

I am so surprised that we have received five graduation announcements. So I had to make a couple more to the three I had made previously. This time I used stamps from a now out of business Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Graduation. I went with the school colors of maroon and gold for this card. I think every year when it comes to graduation time I either use an image or some sentiments from this set. I am so glad I have it in my possession.



It just so happens I had some pattern paper in my stash which was perfect with it. I added that to a white card base. I also used the same shade of ink to stamp the design and then colored it in with the maroon using my Bics. I die cut the panel with a Makers Movement stitched rectangle and then added a layer of maroon before placing it on the main card base.

I think that might be the last graduation card this year but one never knows for sure I guess. Like I said I was so surprised we had five announcements sent our way. Unfortunately we cannot go to all of the celebrations but at least we have cards to send them. And I have not heard of any weddings coming up but then I could be surprised there too! 

Thanks for the visit and wonderful comments you leave too. I always love to hear what you have to say about my cards.

Take care and God bless, Verna

This is spectacular, Verna! The colors are amazing! Looks just like maroon and gold on this end. I love that you added the pattern paper to the background. I want to do that because there is so much of it in my paper drawer. I love the font used for the sentiment. What a wonderful stamp set to get lots of use out of. It's a beautiful card!

I often use the school colors when I make my graduation cards. I wondered if your color choice was a school color. If not, it is still a great card, I love the fling of caps. We are off to our grandson's graduation tomorrow. I know we just got home yesterday but can't miss actual graduation.

This is a wonderful graduation card! The design is perfect and the custom colors make it even more special! I don't know that I've ever received many more than 5 graduation announcements in my life, let alone in one year! LOL
