Congratulations to our grandson, Joshua Decker, on his High School Graduation!
We are so proud of Joshua!
For his card, I used the colors on the graduation announcement to make the front of the card. There was just a touch of green on the Eaton Eagle so I bordered the circle with a little green. The banner is silver but to get the stamped images on the sides to show in the picture I had to turn it a bit sideways and the banner looks gold!
Recipe for Joshua’s graduation card:
The card uses several stamp sets:
- Clearly Whimsy Stamps Collection – Graduation- DA1173
- You Did It on the circle
- Diploma on the left
- Inside (one stamp)
- Vertical Greetings for Congrats on right side
- Reflected In Nature for the Eagle on the top left
- Day By Day Numbers for the 2023 on the bottom right
- Make A Difference for Joshua’s name
Heather taught us how to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make the graduation cap (mortarboard cap) by punching once and then hold the punched image with a sticky note and punch a second time. Punch just the side of the punch for the base of the cap.
The circles are made with dies from the retired circle set with the 5th largest die in Granny Apple Green and the 4th largest die in Basic White embossed with the confetti embossing folder.
The Banner Die is the 5th in the retired banner die set.
- Base: Thick Basic White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
- Layer 1 (X2): Night of Navy, 4 X 5 1/4
- Banner: Silver Foil, 2 1/2 X 4 1/4 die cut then embossed with the Star embossing folder
- Granny Apple Green: Die cut for a border with 5th largest circle
- Basic White: 3 3/4 X 5, die cut with 4th largest circle and emboss with confetti embossing folder
- Cap: Black Foil, 2 X 3, cut with Tailored Tag Punch
- Inside Layer: Basic White, 3 3/4 X 5, stamp and color
- Embellishments: Navy Twine made into a tassel secured with a black brad, 3 Swarovski crystals
Yes, Sal, but I failed to write down which colors I used. Next time.
The design inspiration comes from the card Heather Guitreau made at our shoebox event:
Lovely cards, Heather!
