A special time in one’s life is graduation day. The preparation leading up to this event is enjoyable by all families. Ava here to share a card for my niece who will be graduating and the school colors are red, white and black.
Graduation Card Supplies:
- Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection, Fire Brick Red Cardstock
- Graphic 45 Signature Series, Photogenic
- Core Essentials Cardstock, Snowflake
- Sand it Gadget & Dust Buddy
- May Arts Ribbon
- Tombow Adhesive
- Spellbinders label 8 dies
- Clearsnap Colorbox Ink
Step 1. Die cut a few labels from Spellbinders, emboss, ink and you have a multi-layered card.
Step 2. Tearing Core’dinations Cardstock for a distressed edge is my favorite technique. Here I used Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection, Fire Brick Red Cardstock.
Step 3. Heat embossed my sentiment in black ink and stamped my star’s in Red, Clearsnap Colorbox Ink.
Step 4. Layer the label die cuts with foam squares from Tombow, add some rhinestones and a bow.
Graduation is in full force right now and we wanted to share some awesome projects from our Guest Designer, Charlotte Dobson. She made the most amazing graduation projects for us.
