Graduate With Verve
Well, I've so been enjoying seeing all the posts on Facebook of everyone's kiddos graduating. We have one that's been graduated for a few years now, and for our two other girls, I know time will fly by so fast and they will be going across that stage before we know it. Luckily, we still have a few more years--Audrie will be in 5th and Lindsie will be in 8th grade next year!
Anyway, with all that in mind, I thought I'd make a quick graduation card to commemorate all the graduates this year using some of my favorite VERVE stamps. I don't know why, but whenever I make a graduation card, my "go to" colors that come to my head are always black, red, white and gold (and no, that's not because those were my high school colors--Go Richland Rebels!). This time I threw a little gray in there as well. Surprisingly, I didn't even start with a sketch, so this card "graduated" into what it is now using the HAPPY DAYS set for most of the stamping and the GEARED UP set for the numbers that I stamped onto the BANNER BUNDLE die cut. I finished it up with the PENNANT TRIM and STARRY dies which I cut from some gold mirror cardstock. I adore that stuff!!
Ok, I've got to run off, we are getting ready to head to another soccer tournament today out of town for Audrie. If you have a graduate this year, this card's for them! Squeeze their neck and tell them CONGRATS from me!
SUSIE Q-TIP: I think I've said this before, but layering little stars on top of big ones is a YES.
