Graduation Card

There are about 6 kids in my church that are graduating this year and they are all at the same school so it made it easy to make the cards.  :)  I just made an assembly line and put them together pretty quickly.  Their colors are black and blue w/ the accent colors of silver and white.  Their mascot is the jaguar.  I've attached a copy of their graduation invitation so you can see how it matches up.

I used the My Pink Stampers new Freedom Rocks stamp set for this card.  LOVE this stamp set.  It's actually very versatile.  Unfortunately I used white ink and you can't see it well.  You can actually see it better in person but I think you'd be able to see the black ink better.  Too late.  :)  I wish there was a fabulous white ink.  I've tried SU! ink and I've tried StazOn, not really yipee w/ either.  Anywho...  Hope you like the card.

I am also entering this card in with the Creative Critters Imaginations challenge w/ Tammy and her ladies.  We are to make a graduation card and need to use the Imagine somehow.  The printed blue paper is from the Blast Off Imagine cartridge.  It matched the blue color the best.  I printed it out with my Imagine then cut out the tassel on my Expression since the layout for this card was already set up on my Gypsy.

Thanks for looking!

This is a perfect graduation card. The blue polka dot paper is awesome. And I just LOVE that jaguar/cheetah type embossing in the background. Awesome job! Hugs- Glora

It's beautiful!! FYI: Instead of white ink you can try to emboss w/ white powder it gives it more of a pop !!!

You did a great job on your graduation cards. I love how you incorporated the embossing into the card. I agree with you on the white ink. Someone really needs to make a good one. Thanks for always sharing the greatest projects.
