Congratulations, Graduate!

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  It's been ages since I posted here, and I saw that nothing had been posted yet, so I'm jumping in and posting.  ;)  Tis the season for graduations, so I'm sharing a card I made yesterday for a friend's daughter.  She's graduating from the same high school I graduated from just a few short years ago.  OK. Stop laughing and pick yourself up off the floor.  22 years wasn't so long ago was it?  LOL  

I used the school colors and the Go, Graduate set available in the Summer mini.  The card base is Night of Navy.  The next layer is also Night of Navy.  I stamped the cap all over it in Silver Encore ink (retiring), and then ran it through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder (also in the Summer mini).  I stamped the image and sentiment in Jet Black Stazon on a piece of Whisper White at the same time.  I just lined them both up on one block.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new clear-mount stamps!  I colored the image with watercolor pencils, a blender pen and a few SU! markers.  A piece of Bashful Blue taffeta (retiring) and some Silver elastic cord (retired) finishes off the card. 

Supplies(all SU!): Stamps- Go, Graduate.  Ink- Jet Black Stazon, Silver Encore.  Paper- Whisper White, Night of Navy.  Accessories- Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Bashful Blue taffeta, Silver elastic cord, dimensionals.
Happy stampin'!
