Congrats, Graduate!

Graduation season will soon be upon us and we're giving you lots of inspiration and card ideas for the new graduates over at Card A Day Blog.

Just a Couple Details:

  • I colored a chipboard label with Black Soot Distress Ink and a foam ink blender.  "Congrats" was stamped in Jet Black StazOn onto white cardstock, adhered to the center of the chipboard label and accented with a layer of Glossy Accents.
  • The mortarboard an SVG file from The Creative Pointe.  I cut it from black cardstock, then accented it with white Glaze pen.
  • I really love all the decorative tapes out there!  This one is K&Co.'s "Smash" tape.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink ‘Spring Moss’
Patterned Paper:  Fancy Pants ‘Beach Bum’
SVG:  The Creative Pointe
Stamps: Inkadinkado
Inks: Distress Ink ‘Black Soot’; StazOn ‘Jet Black’; Glaze Pen ‘White’

  1. The card turned fantastic and perfect for a male. Great idea for the addition of the tape and a perfect place for it. I'll have to remember to use that tape on cards too, not just on the books
